Ages and stages

As our children grow and change we discover new seasons of parenting for faith. The principles remain the same, but how they work out in practice may look different. Here you’ll find articles and videos focussing on specific age groups, as well as what family life is like when you are parenting alone. If you are facing a particularly tough season, our change and challenge topics may be helpful.

Session 3: Connecting to God – prayer.

Communication is at the heart of every authentic relationship so our teens need to discover their own voice as they communicate with God and learn to catch his communication too.
