Guilt, Grace, and Guidance—Three Keys to Help Your Child Connect with Christ

Oct. 10, 2014 Jani Ortlund

Many young women have asked Ray and Jani how they raised their four children to love and serve Jesus. Jani has been thinking about how best to help young moms connect their kids with Christ. Come learn how best to study your child, understanding his or her individual bent.


Jani Ortlund: Welcome. I'm glad to see all of you (you're here!), because either you have children or grandchildren or you love children. There may be some of you here who don't have your own children yet but work with children, and you want to know, "What does the Bible say about godly mothering?"

Now, I am not here because I'm the expert. I'm here because I've grown through a lot of failure. We hear the phrase often, "There are no guarantees." You know, you can do this and that and that but there are no guarantees, and that scares us. I'm here to tell you, there may not be a guarantee but there are indeed promises. And God is faithful to His promises.

So we want to take some time today . . . This is going to be a topical talk; it's not going to be the exposition …
