Let It Shine-Partnering with God to Raise World Changers by Martha Singleton and Greg Singleton
The world into which our children are called to bring a lifetime of light is inundated with darkness, and the parental inclination is to protect them. Though the intentions might be positive, sometimes our instructions and boundaries are motivated by fear, and can actually hinder our children from maturing in their own exciting spiritual adventures. In answering the high calling of parenting, we may find that God’s goals for our children are focused in a surprisingly different direction from what we have assumed. Let It Shine is a Scripture-based study exploring specific attitudes and practices that enable parents to encourage each child to discover and develop his or her personal, God-given purpose. Rather than hiding out in the safety and limitations of the bunkers we sometimes tend to create, our children can become adept at using their gifts and abilities as God intends.
