David denHartog begins a series on the home and parenting. Nothing is easy about building a family, but it has never been harder in our world today. John White, in Parents in Pain, lists 5 factors that influence how a child’s turns out. Pastor David adds a sixth influence, and all of it together paints a very dark picture. Is there any hope? Yes! Where is our hope? What has to happen? How can we raise children to the praise and glory of Jesus Christ?
