In this six-session video-based small group bible study, Sacred Parenting, Gary Thomas uses a unique lens to look at parenting, moving beyond raising great children to becoming more holy as a person. What if one of God's primary intentions for you as a parent isn't about successfully raising perfect children, but about you becoming more holy? In Sacred Parenting Gary Thomas illustrates how God can transform lessons in raising children into opportunities to grow in the image of Christ. It will help you and your group, rediscover parenting from a different perspective: as a method of spiritual formation expressly designed by God to shape your soul in ways you could not imagine! Designed for use with the Sacred Parenting DVD (sold separately), this Participant Guide will help you dig deeper into learning how God can transform dirty diapers, toddler tantrums, and a teenager's silence into occasions for becoming more like Christ. Sessions include: 1. The Soul-Transforming Journey of Parenting 2. God-Centered Parenting 3. The Hardest Hurt of All 4. Embracing Our Insignificance5. Walking on the Wild Side of Parenting 6. The Gold Behind the Guilt
