The Church of God, a Worldwide Association, provides practical, biblically based tips and inspiration for Christian parents.
ORLANDO, FL, Aug. 1, 2011—Becoming a parent is a major life-changing event, and most parents have received little training and have little support in handling this heavy responsibility. As part of its mission to proclaim the good news of the Kingdom of God, the Church of God, a Worldwide Association, has launched a new Christian Parenting Blog at http://cogwa.org/christian-parenting-blog.
Modern society is making it harder to be a parent. Television, movies, video games, music and other forms of media often promote violence and sex. Peer pressure too often encourages alcohol and drug use and other dangerous behaviors. In the midst of all this, parents are searching for wise advice and often finding confusing, conflicting and even bad advice. The Christian Parenting Blog is designed to help by giving parents access to biblical wisdom and practical experience from modern Christian parents.
Each stage of child development brings new joys and challenges. Current plans for the Christian Parenting Blog include producing helpful material in each age category, from pregnancy to the high school years.
The blog is posted on the Church of God, a Worldwide Association, website. Readers can also sign up to receive emails when new items are posted by clicking on the “Join Our Email List: Sign Up” button on the right side of the blog page.
“God’s plan involves family, and the Bible gives foundational wisdom that parents need. We are trying to seek out many wise and experienced ministers and members who have learned from the Bible and experience what works in parenting today,” said Mike Bennett, a minister of the Church of God, a Worldwide Association, and the coordinator of the Christian Parenting Blog.
The Christian Parenting Blog joins a stable of other blogs designed to be newsy, touching, relevant, helpful and even fun. The blogs engage dozens of writers, hundreds of topics and thousands of readers in meaningful, biblically based conversations. The blogs include the Daily Bible Verse Blog, the News and Prophecy Blog, the Godly Women Blog, the Man Blog, the Teen Blog and the Young Adult Blog.
