FREE Family Resource - HomeFront Magazine!

Raising children; especially preschool and young elementary children, is not particularly "boring". Not only are you spending your time with some of the least-boring people on the face of the earth (children), but there is always something to be focused and working on! 

In all our focus on the day-in-day-out work of raising children, it can be easy to lose focus on another important aspect of raising children beyond the daily providing for their needs; guiding children so they grow in their walk with God.

One way we can do this is by using resources which help us focus on providing time for children to grow in their own walk with God. Deuteronomy 6 makes it very clear one of the most vital roles of parents and grandparents is for us to pass on a heritage of faith by weaving faith into our day-in-day-out lives. We do not want our children/grandchildren to think their walk with God is something which they think about just when they are at church. Their walk with God is something which they can and need to think about day-in and day-out as they live their everyday lives, every day.

So, today I am thrilled to let you know about a FREE resource which you can use with your grandchildren and share with their parents. HomeFront is a free on-line monthly magazine/resource filled with excellent information, ideas and activities to help parents and grandparents, children and families grow in their walk with God! Cook describes HomeFront in this way; "HomeFront is a FREE monthly resource which gives parents and grandparents ideas on how to create fun, spiritually forming times in their home – even in the midst of their busy lives. This digital magazine can be sent right to your inbox each month, making it easy for parents & grandparents to shape a vibrant faith in the lives of their children."

I especially love how it includes grandparents and encourages us to, "shape a vibrant faith in the lives our our grandchildren" as well! Each issue includes recipes, activities, crafts, Bible adventures and more; all you - and your grandchildren's families - have to do is go to this link and enter your email address. HomeFront will be emailed to you each month! You will also find links for back issues which you can download as well.

HomeFront is absolutely a valuable tool; one which will help grandparents/parents pass on a heritage of faith as they help grandchildren/children grow in their day-in-day-out walk with God. Check it out today!
