Parent Training Center Giveaway for Churches

Biblical parenting is important to my family and me. I'm so grateful for all the wonderful resources available through the National Center for Biblical Parenting. I've been pleased with the materials I've had opportunities to review so far: Motivate Your Child by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, Motivate Your Child Action Plan, Parenting Unchained by Dr. James D. Dempsey, and Family Toolbox.

A Parent Training Center is a church that intentionally trains parents, providing resources and tools both for discipleship of believers and for evangelism to families in the community.
The National Center for Biblical Parenting offers resources, and practical support to help you become the Parent Training Center God designed. The Equipping Program contains a number of mobilization tools to help you advance to the next level in your parent discipleship ministry.
With this program you'll interact with experts as well as other pastors and church leaders. Receive personalized guidance for your unique church situations. Use resources that will equip your parents to reach their children's hearts.
Parent Training Center Giveaway for Churches To introduce your church to the Parent Training Center concept, we are hosting an awesome giveaway that includes some of our best church and parent training resources, along with a $100 gift certificate to the National Center for Biblical Parenting store. Here's what your church could win: 

Parenting Is Heart Work DVD Church Kit ($199.95 value)

Equip parents to touch the hearts of their kids with this biblically-based, practical training program. Parents and teachers of children 2-18 years will benefit from this life-changing curriculum. The Parenting is Heart Work Church Kit includes: • Eight 35-minute video sessions • A Leader's Guide with reproducible pages for attendees • A copy of the 256 page book Parenting is Heart Work
The videos were filmed before a live audience of parents and children. Using drama, Bible stories, and lots of illustrations, Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN will energize you and provide you with tools you need to strengthen your family. Use this eight-part video series in your church, small group, or even in your own family. Many times parents have to change the way they parent in order for children to change the way they live.

The Family Toolbox DVD Church Kit ($179.95 value)

he Family Toolbox has 8 lessons for parents, teens, or both in a small group setting. Each one has a 1-2 minute scene of a family living life and experiencing common challenges in their relationships. A discussion guide prompts dialogue among parents and a 10-minute teaching session featuring Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN gives practical tools to use right away.
As the group works through the lessons parents learn:
• How to focus on the heart instead of just behavior • The cues you give that tell your children when you mean business • Practical ways to remove conflict from the problems of family life • How to end correction times with impact • A tool for maximizing heart change in the correction process • The value of teaching kids to accept no as an answer • Ways to reduce anger episodes in children
The Family Toolbox is designed for families with children ten years old and up and is an excellent resource for small groups. Each lesson can be done in 20-30 minutes, but could also lead to discussion and dialogue lasting an hour or more.

Review: Memory Cross

Memory Cross features unique origami cards that keep opening up from the center. I received several samples to review. I love them all! They are so fun and so useful. They are sturdy and visually appealing. I've given away one of the Gospel tracts to a Chinese scholar and her nine year old daughter. The girl was fascinated by it. I've also given away 2 coloring cards to two girls who were excited to receive them. There are many varieties of cards such as Gospel tracts, Scripture Memory cards, Bible Story cards, Thank You cards, ABC Coloring Flash Cards, etc. Memory Cross gospel tracts are awesome tools for evangelism; they are easy to use and they grab attention. Memory Cross Bible Story cards and Bible Memory cards help children learn and memorize Bible stories and verses in a fun, enjoyable, unforgettable way. They are great teaching tools for Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, homeschool, and any time you want to have meaningful art & craft activities for your kids. Memory Cross also makes custom design cards and wedding coasters. Check them out!

DVD Review: Catching Faith

The Taylors look like a perfect family. John is a successful business man. Alexa is a beautiful, stylish mom who seems to have everything under control. Their son, Beau, is the star of the high school's football team while their daughter, Ravyn, is an academically exceptional student. But the picture-perfect family starts to unravel when Beau is caught drinking alcohol which is against the football team's code of conduct. In the meantime, Ravyn feels pressured to succeed and tempted to cheat. Alexa has to deal with her children's problems, her moved-in mom's constant criticism & controlling behavior, and her own issue of needing to maintain control and image. 

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Catching Faith. It's raw and real. It made me cry. Life is messy. Parenting is hard. But God is enough! This film is inspired by the Elijah Project workbook. Honesty. Dishonesty. Integrity. Identity. Peer pressure (even for adults). Courage. Relationships. Outstanding performances! Great lessons! Fantastic music! I highly recommend this family, faith-filled DVD!
