Doug Britton Legacy Newsletter — October 7, 2005
(1) Online Parenting Bible Studies
(2) Coming workshops and retreats
October 7, 2005
Here’s my latest news. I hope the information is helpful.
In this email:
(1) Two new online Bible studies and one updated one – all on Christian parenting
(2) Upcoming counseling and marriage workshops and retreats
New online Bible study: How to Center Your Family in the Lord
There’s nothing more important to Christian parents than to see their children develop a relationship with Jesus. This study gives parents concrete steps to establish a positive, Christ-centered home.
New online Bible study: How to Keep Your Sanity as a Parent
Whether someone is married or single, parenting is hard work. It can drain parents physically, mentally, and emotionally. This study helps parents stay balanced, overcome guilt about “failure,” and maintain their sanity.
Revised online Bible study: Prepare Your Child for the Real World
Well-meaning parents are often so controlling and over-protective that their children leave home unprepared to deal with life. This study shows parents how to help their children do chores, make choices, and develop responsibility.
More online studies on marriage, anger, jealousy, defeating temptation and other topics
