Discussion Questions:

1. Lee Ann mentioned that biblical concepts should be introduced to children as early as when they are in the womb. How do you think this can help in building a strong foundation of faith from a young age?

2. How can parents combine academics with a Christ-centered education to help point their children to Jesus? Share practical examples.

3. Discuss the idea of creating a family mission statement and its significance in shaping the direction and purpose of a family’s life.

4. What are your thoughts on the concept of creating a contract with children to help lay out expectations and responsibilities, giving them a sense of accountability and ownership?

5. Reflect on Lee Ann’s experience as a parent, and her admission that she did not do all the things she now knows are important. How can parents overcome feelings of guilt and inadequacy in their parenting journey, and how can you get a fresh start when you’ve missed important parenting steps?

6. How can parents start incorporating biblical teachings and values into everyday activities, as suggested in Deuteronomy 6, to create a lifestyle of faith for their children?

7. Discuss the importance of continuous learning and growth for parents, as well as the significance of being vulnerable and open with their children about your own spiritual journey.

8. What steps can parents take to be intentional and purposeful in their parenting, even if they haven’t previously implemented specific strategies such as a family mission statement or regular Bible teaching with their children?
