Our heart is to encourage the hearts of Christian parents to raise wholehearted children who will live for Christ.
Our children were eight, six, and three when we first began to realize that we wanted to encourage Christian parents. We had been parents just long enough at that point to know that we needed courage instilled in us to be the kind of parents we heard God calling us to be in his Word. And that is what we wanted to give other parents—we want to help them become wholehearted Christian parents.
Encouragement is both the foundational and the formational motivation for this ministry. Foundational because God gave us hearts to encourage other Christian parents to “bring [their children] up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord” (Ephesians 6:4). Formational because everything we would eventually do to give help and hope to Christian parents would emerge from that motivation and conviction.
We wanted our children to be “whole” in Christ, like David prayed for his son, Solomon—“know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind” (1 Chronicles 28:9). We also wanted to “consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds … encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:25). We still want to encourage parents to take up the call of God to raise their children with whole hearts and willing minds for the Lord. That is where our ministry begins and will end.
