Preparing Sons Who Can Provide For a Family
(Family Discipleship, Homeschool How-to)
In today’s world of two-income families, preparing a son to provide for a single-income family seems an overwhelming task. Christian parents will find it helpful to have a purpose and plan as they raise sons who will one day be responsible for supporting a family. Steve Maxwell presents the groundwork for preparing your son to be a wage-earning adult. Beginning with age three and up, Steve shares specific ways a parent can start equipping a son with the character and skills needed to eventually be a successful wage earner. Steve explains how it is possible for parents, with a willing commitment, to properly prepare their sons to provide for a single-income family.
Keeping Our Children’s Hearts: A Parent’s Highest Priority (with Teri Maxwell)
Rebellion and immorality are common among teens even within the Christian community. Does Scripture offer any path of hope for more than this for our children? What can parents do to direct their children toward godliness rather than worldliness? When does this process begin? What is the cost? Steve and Teri Maxwell believe the key factors in raising children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) are whether or not the parents have their children’s hearts and what they are doing with those hearts. Keeping Our Children’s Hearts offers hope, direction and encouragement on this critically important topic.
