Parenting by Grace

I was sitting on the platform of a Christian parenting conference looking out over the audience.

My family has recently finished a complete study through the Bible, verse by verse, which has taken us over 6 years to complete. In addition to reading the text of Scripture, we have utilized many other supplementary resources as well. I describe a bit of our approach to studying the Bible as a family HERE.
