As parents, this is our heart's desire: that our families would be "Firmly Planted" in the fertile soil of God's Word, and that as families, we would become students of the Bible. We are told in Timothy that the Bible should be our primary reference tool for life-that "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16- 17 NIV).
While our children are in our care, we have an opportunity to shape their hearts and minds for the Lord. We have an opportunity to teach our children to be amazed by God's creativity as evidenced through His creation. We also have the chance to walk with God in a way that allows our children to grow right along with us.
