#106: Raising Today's Kids


I introduce the new sermon series, Raising Amazing Kids, with some personal thoughts to why raising children today is such a challenge. The expectations for mom and dad and their family is very different than when I was a kid - and these pressures are continuing. But raising a family today is not at all impossible. Teaching godly principles is just as important to success as ever.

In this first sermon, we talk about 4 challenges of raising kids in today’s world. We consider 3 reasons why it’s so important to give our children a spiritual foundation. Finally we provide 3 suggestions for today’s parents.

Music for today's podcast is The Andy Griffith Show themesong.
