Why focus on parenting?


Helping parents thrive

  • Every child deserves to be safe, cherished and loved, and to know God as their Heavenly Father. A parent’s role is to raise, shape and prepare their children for a life of service to God and to the world around them. This is a big job and can be daunting. Parents need practical guidance as they face the unique challenges of raising children.
  • Children who come to know Christ as their Lord and Saviour early in life are more likely to have a faith that lasts a lifetime. Kids need access to faith-building tools created just for them, to help them grow in their relationship with God as they grow into tweens, teens and eventually young adults.
  • The primary influence on a child’s faith journey is not what their parents say about their faith but how they live it out. This is a big responsibility! Parents need to be equipped to model and pass on their authentic, vibrant faith to their children.
  • Life is difficult and confusing for children, tweens and teens today. It’s crucial to give them a solid foundation of faith and family so they become people of integrity and show resiliency in adulthood. As parents, we are shaping the families of tomorrow by reaching children today.

Testimony of a life changed

“A year ago we went on a family holiday. Every night we would play Adventures in Odyssey for the kids at bed time. One night, after they had been in bed for a while suddenly our oldest came down in tears. A bit concerned, we asked him what was wrong. He began to tell us about the episode he had been listening to and how he wanted to give his life to Jesus. My husband and I prayed with him right then and there. He was 6 at the time. We have listened to countless episodes since. Adventures in Odyssey is definitely a favourite in our house!” – Martha
