Parenting Spiritual Children
One of the ways to parent spiritual children is to teach them how to have a personal, intimate relationship with their Creator and how to be aware of Him and to have conversations with Him throughout their day. A conversation has two parts to it - a talking part and a listening part. This course will help parents, grandparents and children's ministry leaders and mentors to teach children how to listen and hear from God. We will teach you how to discover all the different ways God shares His thoughts with you and with your children.
We will teach you how to teach your children how to hear from God as His friends - this will help your children grow in their friendship with Jesus and this will help them realise their true identity.
You will learn how to teach your children how to hear from God for other people. In other words, your children will learn to prophesy, which is to encourage, comfort and strengthen others in love. This will develop a culture of serving one another in your own home as well as others outside your home. It will also help your children see others from their Heavenly Father's perspective.
Finally, we will give you some tools you can give your children around healing of patterns of negative thoughts and feelings which are linked to past, harmful experiences. This is one of the greatest gifts you can give your children as they will have a tool to help them manage their own mental health.
Who this course is for:
- Kids church leaders and volunteers.
Bev has been ministering to children for many years, hosting God's presence and teaching children to recognise God's unique way of sharing His thoughts with them. She is a scientist and author and believes that every child can know God's thoughts for themselves and to encourage others, and that they can be powerful messengers of His love, peace and truth as they share what He gives them with the families, friends and communities. She lives on the Central Coast of New South Wales with Anton, her husband and they have three children. She attends HopeUC church and is part of the Children's ministry team. Her favourite things to do are going for long walks on the beach, sitting on her veranda spending time with Jesus and praying for her neighbours and family, reading a good book or having a coffee and chat with her children.
