Lois and Eunice are memorialized in one single verse in the Bible which speaks of Timothy, a second generation leader in the early church, receiving his faith from his mother and grandmother. You can influence a member of your family - son, daughter, niece, nephew, grandchild - in a similar way. In this five-session study you will discover that the Bible teaches by examples that handing on the faith to your family is your primary responsibility. This study can be done individually, with a friend, or in a group.
Lois and Eunice followed the numerous Scriptures instructing one generation to pass on their faith to the next generation, and young Timothy grew up to be a second-generation leader of the early church. Often mentoring focuses on reaching out to others, but as parents and grandparents the first line of mentoring should be within your own family, a concept repeated throughout the Bible. The Bible has many devastating examples of parents who were poor role models or didnt rear their children to know God, as well good and faithful parents whose children wandered away from God. Face-to-Face with Lois and Eunice focuses on how women today can be grandmothers, mothers, aunts, and mentors whose faith takes root in the next generation.
