We are excited to announce that Parenting from the Tree of Life is now complete. We have just received part 3 DVD and workbooks.
As all three parts are now available we would love to see people running this course over the rest of this year.
The DVDs are $80 each, with part 3 currently on special for $50. If all 3 DVDs are purchased at one time they are available for $200. The workbooks are $15 each. Orders can be made here.
The full leaders guide will be available mid-April, but if you are wishing to start parts 1 and 2 before then please contact the office.
Also available for facilitators are two documents comparing what is covered in Parenting from the Tree of Life with Growing Kids Gods Way. They can be accessed here under Resources.
Below is a summary of what is covered in the course:
Part One: Life, Children and Relationships (6 Sessions on DVD) speaks to the relational components associated with healthy parenting. Because children tend to reflect the priorities and values of their home life, what is important to Mom and Dad will become important to their children, and will influence what each child becomes in the future.
Part Two: Life, Children and Character Development (6 Sessions on DVD) covers critical components of character training and explains the guiding principles for raising children who are kind, courteous, respectful, cooperative, confident, and certainly well mannered. No child arrives at this level of moral distinctiveness if the home life from which he or she comes is not already conversant with such virtue. Part two is as much for parents as it is for children.
Part Three: Life, Children, Encouragment and Correction (5 Sessions on DVD) takes up the challenges associated with the correction side of training. Corrective is not all about fixing undesirable or wayward behavior—parents must also pay attention to the preventative components of training that reduce the amount of correction needed in the first place. Proactively encouraging behaviors that help children stay on track and knowing how to properly correct children to put them back on track is the focus of Part Three.
We are excited to tell you about a wonderful new venture which Growing Families Australia is entering in to.
As many of you will be aware over the last few years Bill and Joan Grosser have been ministering in the Kimberley region in WA and developing parenting material based on the GFI material, especially for the Aboriginal population. They have been working alongside a small group of locals, including Greg and Linda Wilson.
Greg and Linda have been involved with Growing Families for some time and have been missionaries in a couple of different roles over a number of years, most recently with Kingdom Aviation in Derby.
We are thrilled to announce that from the 1st of January they will become the first full time missionaries for Growing Families Australia. To enable this to happen we have established a new "branch", Growing Families Australia Missions which will administer their support.
Please click here to read their newsletter which gives more detail on what they will be doing.
If you would like to support Greg and Linda please download their newsletter and supporters form and send the details in to us.
If you would like to donate a one off amount to help with the start up and establishment of Growing Families Australia Missions please contact me at the office.
We are so excited by the doors which God has opened and are waiting in anticipation to see what He has in store for the Kimberley region and the way in which families will be changed by Him and for Him.
