The seeds we plant in the lives of children will grow into good, healthy fruit or into weeds that choke out their potential and promise. But parents, grandparents, and mentors don't always know how to speak life into a child or teen. Now Pastor Jack Hayford shows adults how to bless the kids in their lives with words of encouragement, nurture, protection, and challenge. In Blessing Your Children, Hayford shares Jesus' tender heart for children and offers a biblical blueprint for passing on God's blessing to future generations. This warm, insightful book, which includes an application and prayer at the end of each chapter, will be a treasured resource for parents and grandparents, children's pastors and family counselors, and mentoring programs.
