Session 6: Nurturing Identity

Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!

The Need To Know

Take the lead.

  •   Leading kids in family devotions can be as simple as reading Scripture aloud, asking questions, or having a few thoughts to share.

  •   Launching your kids in the right spiritual direction first involves a well-grounded, thriving relationship of your own with God.
