About the Book
How can parents effectively transfer their moral values and faith to their children, forming moral character in them while at the same time promoting true discipleship to Christ?
Empowering the Transfer of Moral Values and Faith promises to be eye-opening and life-changing for all serious Christians, parents, young couples, and single adults whose desire it is to embody the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. His influence in your heart and life will transform you into an effective influence in the hearts and lives of others, beginning with your own precious children. This book informs parents of actions to take now to become better parents. Equipped with new understanding of how God works in you, He will enable you to bring His moral standard into your home, and empower you to transfer moral values and faith to your children.
I remember in the past, always wanting my children to treat each other nicely, but I had no idea how I was to go about teaching them how to love in a practical way. The principles that I learned in this book taught me how to do that.
It is not a book with a step-by-step formula to follow, because such a formula would be assuming the role of the Holy Spirit to direct us in His specific ways for our families. But it is a book that challenged the way that I defined my morality and also the way that I defined discipleship.
After being exposed to these principles, I began to seek the Lord in how to cooperate with what He wanted to do (first in me, then through me). This meant that I began to tell the truth that I was passing on my own immorality to my children, and I didn’t want to do that ANYMORE. I also saw that my discipleship efforts were all in vain because I had been operating without the understanding that relationship was the foundation of true discipleship.
I can’t say how thankful I am that I have learned these truths when my children are still young, that these truths that have become a part of who I am, and that I now have the tools that I need to disciple my my little ones to Jesus. If you are ready to cooperate with the Lord in having your own heart transformed, enabling you to lead your children through the same process, then I highly recommend this book.
