There’s a hymn from 1928 titled How Firm a Foundation about how no matter what trials, distress, anxiety, disasters, and other such things we face in life, God our Father is there to get us through it. Our faith in Christ and protection and provision from God the Father, gives us each a rock solid foundation to build our lives upon. As parents, we are wonderfully created in His image to provide such a foundation for our children, as well!
As loving and devoted parents, grandparents, and caregivers, we know that providing for, and nurturing, our children’s physical, emotional, and mental health is absolutely integral to raising thriving children who grow into thriving adults, but did you know that the latest scientific research shows that there’s another realm of health to be added to this list? It is Spiritual health, and it is every bit as integral as the other realms of health mentioned in helping our children develop a firm, thriving foundation that they can stand upon now and build upon for their entire lives.
“Spirituality is the most important protective factor against suffering, the most essential factor for thriving relationships, and long-term meaning in children. In fact, the deep spiritual core is essential to a thriving, flourishing child.”Dr. Lisa Miller, Clinical Scientist and Psychologist

When a child’s total-health foundation is built upon Christ The Solid Rock, it will hold them up strongly as children and be their strength as adults. This foundation will last their entire lifetime; it is immovable, it will always be there for them to stand on. What a gift of immeasurable worth and importance we can bless our children with in providing this foundation!
We pray that you will join us in providing the firmest, rock-solid foundation for thriving possible for your beloved child.
