Growing purpose

God has purposes for each one of us, that we discover as we walk each day in relationship with him. As parents and carers we have the joy of helping our children discover the purposes and passions God has placed inside them, and seeing whom God is shaping them to be. In this section you’ll find stories and articles to encourage and equip you as you nurture the callings God has for your child, whether just for now or for a season or even a lifetime. Rachel Turner’s book ‘Parenting Children for a Life of Purpose’, which expounds these ideas, is now published as part of the Parenting Children for a Life of Faith Omnibus.
