Thinky Thursday: Why Your Kids Will Quit Church

This book is important.  Because I really love the next generation, I’m going to say it again:  this book is important. And as someone who has worked with teenagers for about a million years, I kinda thought I knew it all.  But this book changed the way that I’m going to teach my kids.  It’s changed my point of emphasis in their lives.  Already Gone

Already Gone: Why Your Kids will Quit Church and what You can do to Stop it by Ken Ham & Britt Beemer.

And, if you’re like me, you’ll read and it panic and think, “How in the world am I going to teach my kids a Biblical worldview?”  The answer that I found is The Truth Project. It’s simply one of the most compelling and significant courses I have ever come across.  It’s brilliant.

I am determined that all my kids will go through the 12-week Truth Project before they launch out into a world that is awash in deception and fear.   It’s a bit tough to get a hold of (they only sell the DVD’s at the training seminars and none of those events are held in the Pacific NW), but small groups are springing up in nearly every community in America.  Look it up and find a way to get it into the hearts of the people you love – it really is that important.

Happy Thursday,

Bo

P.S.  I’m taking a group through The Truth Project here in Bend and I might be open to hosting another group in our home after Christmas.  If you’re interested in being a part of a 12-week worldview small group, please let me know.

    Wow, amazing stuff. I was hoping to see a training event in Colorado since my daughter attends college there…keep us posted Bo. I’d really like to see this come to Portland. Just viewing the trailer was very cool. Thanks for sharing this!

    Chuck Colson did a series quite similar to this several years back and while it was very informative, it was also quite boring. We’ve been looking for something a little more current and this looks like it.

    As ever…you are a fount of knowledge and fun. And not always in that order. love you Dearest Fount!

    Hey Momma,
    This looks as amazing as you depicted it to be on the phone and I agree with Karen, can we get it up here? I would be very interested in doing it over the summer.:)
