Sacred Parenting Small Group Bible Study by Gary Thomas.
What if one of God's primary intentions for you as a parent isn't about successfully raising perfect children, but about you becoming more holy? Parenting a child is an in-depth course in spiritual formation, expressly designed by God to touch you and teach you in ways you could never have imagined. Sacred Parenting helps you look at parenting from a unique perspective.
This six-session, video-based study by Gary Thomas offers a road map to new territory—sacred territory defined by the children God has given to teach you his lesson in love. Designed for use with the Sacred Parenting Participant Guide (sold separately), this video series features six 10-15 minute live sessions with Gary Thomas and will help you dig deeper into learning how God can transform dirty diapers, toddler tantrums, and a teenager's silence into occasions for becoming more like Christ.
Sessions include: 1. The Soul-Transforming Journey of Parenting 2. God-Centered Parenting 3. The Hardest Hurt of All 4. Embracing Our Insignificance 5. Walking on the Wild Side of Parenting 6. The Gold Behind the Guilt
