Through his years of ministry, Jimmy Holbrook has seen the need for parents to be intentional about providing an environment where kids can grow up to face the world with a solid, spiritual foundation. Parents are responsible to teach their kids how to function in society as spiritual warriors for Christ. Kids do not leave home without some understanding of relationships, character, or values. It is during those childhood years that parents are called to teach God’s truth by talking about it and living it out at home.
Shelter is an excellent tool giving parents instruction on the stages of a child’s development physically and spiritually. The author shares practical concepts for parents to implement in their home to authentically model the principles of Deuteronomy 6.
