How can you find time to disciple children when your feet never touch the ground?

Parents under pressure

Has there ever been a time when parents have been under more pressure - and with less family support around to help? Work stresses... the relentless ferrying to school and clubs... the merciless round of themed dressing up days for younger children... the escalating demands to support teenagers through ever more competitive exams...

In the midst of all this, how can parents fit in an extra ‘faith bit’?

The good news, claims Rachel Turner, is that we don’t have to. Or at least not as an 'extra'. Rachel is the founder of Parenting for Faith, an exciting addition to BRF's programmes. It helps parents discover how to tune in to children and reveal where God is, right here, right now, in the muddle of everyday family life.

God's plan for children's discipleship was in all the places of the everyday… if I was going to see children fully alive in all that God has for them, then I needed to get myself out of the way and serve parents with the wholeness of my heart.
