Never have Christian families been so challenged by the world around them to instill and instruct their children in the tenets of their faith. Moral relativism literally seeps into every facet of family life and saturates our popular culture. A ubiquitous media presence that defines our daily experience also is defining the attitudes and behaviors of those who consume it. Yet within this pervasive secular culture, Christian families encounter “teachable moments,” those unplanned but unmatched opportunities to put their faith into action and live out the values and virtues embodied in Jesus Christ. When looking for teachable moments, parents, and coaches must approach each day with intentionality, seeking out and capitalizing on opportunities to incorporate life lessons into every day experiences amid the culture.
Teachable moments might be as simple as incorporating values about empathy and compassion in young friendships, or as complex and consequential as understanding the nature of the culture’s destructive messages about human sexuality. They might present themselves in song lyrics, teacher’s comments, television shows, social media interactions, and current events. Most certainly, teachable moments emerge in parenting decisions, family relationships, school situations, and in opportunities for freedom and responsibility.
Teachable Moments outlines the overarching issues and objectives in using daily encounters with the culture to impart the values and virtues of Christianity. Through entertaining and instructive questions and answers, author Marybeth Hicks provides concrete examples of teachable moments that will ring true for every family.
"I highly recommend this book to parents of children of all ages. It’s one of my new go-to resources on parenting. Teachable Moments is definitely worth the investment, and it’s one volume I’ll refer to over and over again as I grow as a parent."
Yes! Another spectacular, must-have book on parenting from my friend Marybeth Hicks, who reminds us that the role of parents is one ordained by God to instill in our children the virtues and values and faith that will lead them to heaven. A seasoned mom of four young adults, Marybeth brings to bear her years in the parenting trenches but also a keen understanding of the cultural influences that challenge today's Christian parents. This is more than a book of parenting advice and suggestions; it's an encouragement to those of us who are committed to fulfilling our vocations as mothers and fathers. Get this book and start looking for teachable moments with your kids every day!
