The House Model
We have a fixed amount of time to prepare our kids for the future. This seems like all the time in the world when we bring them home from the hospital. When we are holding our newborn in our arms, we think about what they are about to become – great athletes, super talented, looked up to by all the kids in their class and graduating magna cum-whatever – and that’s just kindergarten! The problem is these little “18 year wake up calls” have a mind of their own, a personality of their own and a deep seated sin nature that can thwart all of our best laid plans and intentions. None of us know very well what we're doing when we get into this thing called parenting. Our culture doesn’t give us a lot of guidance either.
If we want our kids to turn out right and be aimed at a life of true greatness by the time they leave our nest, it is going to take a game plan – a well thought out strategy. We need a philosophy of parenting that focuses on the heart of our child, their inner core or being and keeps the end result in mind. We believe there’s a biblical philosophy of parenting that’s written throughout the pages of Scripture and can be seen in the way that God deals with us – through Grace.
The Grace Based Parenting model does just that. Just as you build a house from the ground up, you build your child up. It starts with a firm foundation that is rooted in a solid relationship with Jesus Christ and is aimed at raising our children for a future of True Greatness.
We want to make sure that when it's time for them to go and be on their own, we've put everything in place in their hearts for them to be able to take on the future with calm and confidence. That's what grace does. That's what this Grace Based Parenting model is all about. The best part is that it is never too early and never too late to begin to apply these concepts into your family. No matter what age and stage you and your child are in, no matter what your family dynamic is, the principles of Grace Based Parenting can set your family free and unlock everyone’s true potential.
