Day 21. See other 31 Dayers at The Nesting Place.
Teenagers typically stop going to church. They question everything around them. They question their parents and their ideals. The teenage years are the most important time to keep in contact with your children. Give them a reason to believe.
I believe that you are the parents and you get to decide what your children do on Sunday mornings. In our house our family goes to church together. Read You Are The Parent. This does not mean we are tyrants but our children know we care enough about them to never stop teaching them. Part of raising children is raising them in the Church. This also means that we have to do our best to model what we preach. We have to walk the walk and not just talk the talk.
The most important thing that you can do as parents to model Christ is to be committed in marriage to one another. Ephesians 5 gives a beautiful comparison of husband and wife to Christ and the Church. What are we showing our children about Christ through our marriage? Recommit to one another. Give them a reason to believe.
