Instructing the Heart

"Instructing a child's heart is not simply transferring data from parent to child. It is impressing the heart with truth."

"Honor for God, respect for authority, respect for others, and a gracious and productive atmosphere in our homes will be some of the blessings of biblical formative instruction. Modern homes can be the shelter where dignity, loyalty to family valued and standards are kept, helping our children to face the world and its challenges every day."
