Product Description

In the past, faith was a central part of the family's home life, passed on from generation to generation. Today, the reality for many families is that faith is no more than one-hour, drop-off Christianity, if it is present at all. What does this mean for the faith of our children? How will they come to know Christ? And how does a family put Christ at the center of their busy lives? Mark Holmen knows that becoming a strong, healthy, joy-filled family that God intendedbegins with parents establishing their homes as the primary place where faith is nurtured. In this engaging book, you will learn about the importance of your and your spouse's walk with the Lord; of using gifts and experiences of grandparents, elders and mentors in the family; and of the role church should play with families. Filled with a wealth of practical ideas, inspirational stories and biblical truth, you'll be inspired, motivated and equipped to help you and your family succeed.

    Take It Home, Mark HolmenThis is an excellent church resource. It is great for any church looking to make the family ministry central in the church. If your church has a heart for the family, as all churches should, this book is a must. Many families feel ill-equipped to present the gospel and lead worship time in their own homes. Many in the current generation have not experienced a home life where bible reading and devotion time is central to the family structure. The families of today are over extended in many aspects, they are rushed to and fro with extra-curricular activities, work and school. This resource offers ways to equip the family as to how to integrate these things into their lives. It presents activities that will inspire families to seek the face of God and pass on a legacy and heritage of a Christ centered life. As I looked through these pages I could not help recalling the story of the eunuch when asked if he understood what he read His response was simple How can I unless someone explain. This book does just that by offering guidance in several areas such as blessing your child, and family devotions, talking to your teen about life issues and using the bible as your source of instruction. Highly recommended.Thank you Regal Publishing for providing this review copy.

    After reading this book I felt led to purchase one for every parent of young people in my church (I am the Chair of the Christian Education Commission and Sunday School Superintendent). I challenged all parents to read the book and I will be scheduling study groups to talk about it. It is an excellent read for anyone in children/youth ministry.

    This book is such an encouragement. It allows you to jump in at the parenting stage you are at and dedicate your family and it's journey to following Jesus. It offers words of hope and stories of faith. Best of all practical ideas I can do with my family today.

    As grandparents, we found some good new ways to befriend our grandchildren. This book also gave us a little inside look at the character and nature of the Holmen family. It was a bit too complex and heavy in statistics and processes, but otherwise easy to read.
