Parenting with the End in Mind
Presented by Lisette Fraser
In the midst of the madness of raising kids we sometimes forget that the goal is not just to survive each day or week, but to raise healthy adults. And as parents of faith, that means adults who know, love and serve Jesus for a lifetime. Let’s talk about how to keep our eyes on the bigger goal as we navigate parenting in a wild world. Let’s parent intentionally with the end in mind.

Homegrown Apologetics – How Your Child’s Questions Can Build the Faith of the Whole Family
Presented by Alanzo Paul
“Who made God?” “What about other religions?” “Did God use evolution to make dinosaurs?” When your child asks a tough spiritual question, it’s an opportunity to connect and explore an answer together, resulting in a more enriched faith for the whole family. Jesus welcomed questions because it was a gateway to reveal more about Himself, and we get to do that for our children: show them more of who Jesus is by exploring answers to their big questions.
