It’s easy to dream about being a parent. Before kids arrive, we can’t stop envisioning what it will be like to see our future, little guys and gals smile, to feel their sweet hugs, and to experience their slobbery kisses. But then the little person arrives. After a few moments, the dream becomes a slightly less-than -ideal reality consisting of dirty diapers, sleepless nights, and temper tantrums. All those lofty ideals about being the calm, loving, and always thoughtful parent are replaced by one word “survive!” Although children are a wonderful blessing (those hugs and kisses are real), parenting requires some serious elbow grease.
To parent well, we all need to take to time to relax and to be refreshed by the Scriptures. On August 29-30, FBCE will be inviting parents, grandparents, and all adults who are raising kids to come be rejuvenated and encouraged at our second, bi-annual Biblical Parenting Conference.
This year, Dr. Stinson will be our featured speaker. A Southern Seminary Vice President, co-author of A Guide to Biblical Manhood, and father of 8, Dr. Stinson will be bringing a ton of biblical knowledge and parenting experience to our conference. On Saturday, August 29, he will be addressing the priority of having a biblical marriage, how to overcome common parenting mistakes, and how to reach your child’s heart with truth. On Sunday, August 30, he will be discussing God’s plan for the family, how to biblically lead blended families, how to raise teens, and how to handle rebellious children. See the full schedule below
