How can parents help young people remember God in the days of their youth?

  1. Start young.
  2. Pray, pray, pray.
  3. Read God’s word naturally.
  4. Spend time with your kids, quality and quantity are needed.
  5. Embrace your “distractions” as God’s gifts-it will put them in perspective.
  6. Develop a culture of ministry/serving, as a family.
  7. Invest in your parenting.
  8. Prioritise time – good vs best.
  9. Help your children find other Godly mentors-get to know other families-it takes a village/church to raise a Godly child.
  10. Encourage and pray for those in ministry to children and youth.
  11. Financially support ministry to children and youth.
Ideas welcome, still refining for Sunday
