    Faith in Parents #72 | Doing Halloween for Christ with Nay Dawson

    Faith in Parents #72 | Doing Halloween for Christ with Nay Dawson

    Join Ed, Amy and Nay Dawson as they talk through a Christian approach to Halloween for parents. We can use Halloween as an opportunity to talk to our children about fearless faith, living distinctively and loving generously. It is also the one time when our community knocks on our door. How can we love them, offer them something of Christ without compromising our deep conviction that Christ is the light of the world?
    People: 
    Ed Drew - Director of Faith in Kids
    Amy Smith – Writer for Faith in Kids
    Nay Dawson lives in Southampton with her husband, Jon and two beautiful daughters. Nay works with IFES Europe as their Regional Training Co-Ordinator, previously she worked for UCCF since graduating in a variety of roles. She is the founder of Passion for Evangelism. PfE is a network of creative, public female evangelists. Nay runs an Etsy shop called Houses of Light that sells attractive postcards that tell stories that raise curiosity about Jesus.
    Quote from Nay:
    “It may well be that we don’t trick or treat ourselves. My two daughters get really scared of that kind of stuff. But we were so busy last year. All we were doing was constantly filling up this box to give away ‘gift bags of light’. If you’re unconvinced, go back to Scripture to see what is says about being light of the world, and if Jesus is the light of the world, we have this incredible opportunity to bring light into darkness and point to the light on this dark night.”

    Quote from Laura:
    'Just seeing the different ways that people prayed in scripture... The emotions that are there, the longings that are there, the suffering that is included, the questions that are asked.... Remember that you have 18 years, you don't have to cover all the prayers in one night. Take some time and build that into some routine of things that you discuss and talk about for kids to see a more robust view.'

Fab!

Love this podcast. I have just listened to the ‘parenting the 8-11 year olds’. Just brilliant! Thank you for the honesty of the participants - really enjoyed listening!

RuSte07 ,

Love this podcast!

I’ve really benefited from getting to listen in to godly parents sharing their wisdom, being honest about their failures and showing how God’s grace can transform families. I love the podcasts slots aimed at kids too-really accessible.

aacymru ,

Excellent podcast

Excellent podcast for encouraging, inspiring and challenging Christian parents.
It’s not at all preachy - great to hear about other parents struggles - but covers a huge range of issues that we deal with as we try and disciple our kids in a busy, messy world
