Raising a Christian Child in a Non-Christian World

Presented by Billie Cook

Raising strong Christian children with a heart for the Lord has always been a challenge for parents, but never more so than in the day and age in which we live.  Outside influences compete for a child's heart, mind and soul.  Temptations lurk around every corner.  Be encouraged through this illuminating seminar as author, teacher, and mentor Billie Cook shares meaningful insights to help you honor your commitment to God to raise strong kingdom warriors.
