Studies show that parents are the most influential people in the faith formation of their children. To assist Christian parents with building strong family faith habits, Faith Formation Ministries is excited to introduce Dear Parent: A Guide for Family Faith Formation.
Dear Parent introduces parents and caregivers to four Building Blocks of Faith that will encourage them as they help children to
- find their place in God’s family
- learn God’s story
- live in hope
- and discover their calling.
Authors Laura Keeley and Robert J. Keeley developed the Building Blocks of Faith concept, which is also the basis for the Building Blocks of Faith Toolkit for church leaders from Faith Formation Ministries. The Keeleys, who are members of Fourteenth Street CRC in Holland, Michigan, are experts in the fields of children’s ministry, family faith formation, and children’s faith development.
Dear Parent, available from Faith Alive, is helpful for personal reading, small group study, and parenting classes. Each chapter ends with discussion or thought questions, ideas for living the chapter topic out, and a short resource list. If your church would like to use Dear Parent in family ministry, as a baptism gift, or as a welcome gift for new families, discounted bulk pricing is available.
