Ron: Stories make faith come alive.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Family author Ron Rose says one way to pass the baton of faith to your kids is to tell them three types of stories. First, tell them the faith stories of Bible characters. But don’t just tell them about Abraham, tell them about Abraham’s faithfulness…and doubt. David’s humility…and pride.

Second, tell them your faith story. How you came to Christ and how your faith impacts your every-day decisions. And third, talk about the faith journeys of your extended family. Let their lives—good or bad—be living examples of how faith connects to life.

Parents: stories make faith come alive. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
