I watched the visionary parenting DVD’s and was really challenged. I haven’t read this book but would love to!!!
This is a great book full of practical tips on how to bring your kids with you in the endeavor to live out the great commission. Helping your kids see that they are part of a great adventure of reaching all nations is our calling as a mom and as a follower of Christ.
I love this coloring book….especially with my preschooler! We color the pic and then spend time learning about that unreached people group and praying together. It can be a great interactive tool for young kids.

While Tisha was out with her girlfriends for the weekend, I did “secret church” with the boys. We wrote out some scripture on scrap paper beforehand, and Titus hid it in his shoe. He picked the Daniel in the Lion’s Den story randomly (one of his favorites), and it was great to use that passage because it’s about Daniel praying in the privacy of his own home while spies and government officials arrest Daniel for praying to His God. We hid in the baby’s room, used a flashlight, and got the handwritten verse out and read it together. It totally applied to the situation, and the boys took turns playing “lookout”. Of course, by the end our time, they were telling me dozen’s of spies and Kings were walking around looking for us. I then told them about the mother in Sudan who has recently been arrested for being a Christian. It was great to be some reality to the pretend time. So the boys prayed for this mother who is scheduled to die for her faith after she delivers her baby. The boys had a great time and learned a lot. We talked about our missionary friends who live in places that really do have to meet in secret. Thanks Weave team!!!
