Publisher's Description

Informed by research that reveals destructive parenting patterns are being handed down through most American families (including Christian households), The Parent Adventure looks to the church to help break this cycle and teach moms and dads how to prepare their kids for a lifetime with God.

The problem starts when parents raise children based on their personal experiences growing up instead of using the Bible as the timeless, authoritative guide. Although seemingly painful at first, the parental attitude of “letting go” must begin intentionally at birth, keeping in mind that each child’s life is more about knowing God than anything else. With this outlook established, the future-focused mom and dad will move more joyfully through each stage in the adventure of parenting as detailed in the book.

Knowing God has a lifelong plan for each family member, parents and kids will grow closer to each other just as sure as they will grow closer to God.

Author Letter

Dear Friends,

Our story is one of the amazing work of God in the lives of two ordinary people. As we glance back, we have truly been on an adventure with Him all our lives. The word adventure means both excitement and danger and we wouldn’t recommend living life any other way.

As children, we both had the experience of being raised by parents who lived their own parent adventure that prepared us for life with God. While children, we put our faith and trust in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. While teenagers, we fell in love with God’s Word and surrendered our lives to God to do whatever He desired to do with our lives.

As young adults, God brought us together – a country girl who planned to be a lawyer and a young man somewhat disillusioned after returning from college giving up a football scholarship. We married and took off to seminary to begin our marriage ministry adventure with Him.

Now, after more than thirty years of marriage and ministry together, having raised two daughters who are now off having their own adventures with God, we are so thankful our lives have intersected with yours.

The Parent Adventure: Preparing Your Children for a Lifetime with God is a message we have lived, learned from God’s Word, and tried to help other parents live out with their children. Through the pages of this resource, we pray that you would fully embrace one of God’s greatest adventures, to prepare our children for a lifetime with Him. Also included is extensive current research that will provide you insight into what parents are thinking today.

Through our stories, we hope you laugh, maybe even shed a tear, but mostly that you join the adventure of parenting. May you find encouragement and be challenged to develop your own personal parent adventure plan. May God truly open your eyes to the potential and possibilities that await your children.

Thank-you for considering joining us in sharing the stories and principles found in The Parent Adventure: Preparing Your Children for a Lifetime with God. May your own parent adventure begin today as you get your children ready for their own adventures with God.

Rodney & Selma
