    Ep. 75 Whose Job Is It Anyway?: Spiritual Formation of a Child

    God is not going to ask me if I was successful in raising spiritual children. He is going to ask me if I was faithful. The spiritual formation of a child is given to the parent, not the church or to anyone else. If you plant daily seeds in your child's spiritual development, he will grow continually. Intentionality and consistency are the keys. Here are some easy ideas that anyone can do to grow a child spiritually.

Often the clutter in our environment is a direct result of decision fatigue.
