  • Featured Presentation: How to Raise Your Children to be Leaders (Part 2)

Featured Presentation

The duty of parenting is to create a leadership culture in your home. In Part 2 of this three part series, we closely examine the importance of tailoring this leadership planning based on your child’s gifts. Based on the biblical guidance in Proverbs 22:6, parents are instructed to”Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” In Part 1, we examined the first part of this instruction. This episode dives deeper in examining a key qualifier in how a parent is to train up a child—which is based on knowing “the way he should go”.  This qualification is critical because it gets to the uniqueness of your child. You cannot employ a same size fits all approach to parenting.
Here are the five ways to train up a child in the way he should go.
  • Step 1: Follow the signs
  • Step 2: Support core subjects
  • Step 3: Focus on strengths
  • Step 4: Push more social
  • Step 5: Embrace the struggle
Be sure to tune in next week for part 3 of this series where we will focus on the final part of this verse, “and when he is old he will not depart from it”.  Looking forward to sharing these insights with you.

 IBNO: A Fresh Perspective on Christian Parenting

It is the nature of man to pursue greatness if that is what is expected of him.” – John Steinbeck

“I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.” (John 17:14-18)

It is from this passage that we Christians have culled the often heard phrase to be “in the world, but not of the world”. I capture this thought as “IBNO“.

In obedience to this John 17 passage, I’ve developed five lessons that I believe we Christian parents are responsible for demonstrating and transmitting to our young and even adult children. As in most parenting lessons, these are habits that are better caught than taught. In other words, we parents have to consistently show them to our children.

  • Lesson #1: Believe in something bigger than yourself (v18)
  • Lesson #2: Be true to yourself and if everyone likes you, something is wrong (v14)
  • Lesson #3: Your real adversary is not of this world (v15)
  • Lesson #4: There is a such thing as absolute Truth (v17)
  • Lesson #5: They have a supernatural mission

So, there you have my five IBNO parenting lessons.  I pray that it starts a movement #IBNO. Use that hashtag on all of your social media channels. Tell your friends.
