Marriage Mentors

We learn the duties of our daily job, train for competitions, and study the Bible for spiritual growth, but how many of us are intentional about maturing in our marital relationships? All couples have areas in which they can grow; learning from someone who may have experienced similar life events is a great way to move your relationship to a deeper level.

parenting from the tree of life

October 29 - March 18
Sundays, 9:00 am, Room 309

Registration is closed - class is full

An 18-week class designed for couples to work together in training their preschool to preteen children. The focus of the study is to learn to speak life into our children and our homes while raising morally responsible children. Leaders:  Jason & Johanna Humphrey

  • Part One: Life, Children and Relationships speaks to the relational components associated with healthy parenting. Because children tend to reflect the priorities and values of their home life, what is important to Mom and Dad will become important to their children, and will influence what each child becomes in the future.
  • Part Two: Life, Children and Character Development covers critical components of character training and explains the guiding principles for raising children who are kind, courteous, respectful, cooperative, confident, and certainly well mannered. No child arrives at this level of moral distinctiveness if the home life from which he or she comes is not already conversant with such virtue. Part two is as much for parents as it is for children.
  • Part Three: Life, Children, Encouragement and Correction takes up the challenges associated with the correction side of training. Correction is not all about fixing undesirable or wayward behavior—parents must also pay attention to the preventative components of training that reduce the amount of correction needed in the first place. Proactively encouraging behaviors that help children stay on track and knowing how to properly correct children to put them back on track is the focus of Part Three.

$20 for the workbook.
