Ahh parents, I feel your pain! Our parent to-do list is never ending. But I promise discipling your kid is just the most beautiful thing you will ever get to experience as a parent – don’t outsource it! Own it,enjoy it, treasure it! For me, discipling our children has been the most fulfilling part of our parenting journey. Here are three important steps that you can take to help your kids grow in their faith …
1. Build their Identity
My heart breaks as I work with kids and families through tough challenges. So many growing up and life challenges could be eased if our kids knew some basic things and heard us echoing the fundamentals to them regularly.
In every child, we have to build a strong identity in Jesus – like a foundation. If you don’t have a solid foundation, whatever you put on top will eventually crumble. Building your kid’s identity in Jesus is the first thing you need to do as you disciple your child. It is not a once off job … these foundations need regular checking and filling up.
