Thousands of years ago, God gave His people a powerful promise that before the coming of the Lord, He would "turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers," (Malachi 4:5-6).
While I have heard many prayers and sermons based around this promise in Malachi 4:5-6, I have heard little to no teachings on how to practically walk this out within our homes. This is what is needed more than anything!
This is my heart behind launching this course. After decades as a pastor and a father myself, I want to give families practical tips—grounded in biblical wisdom and personal experience—on how to turn our hearts towards each other.

For Every Session
In the midst of all the craziness of both parenting and being a child, we often forget that the true goal of family is friendship!
In this course, our hope is to help parents and children alike in navigating the complexities of family life—especially during the teenage and young adult years—and build deeper friendships.
Thus, I am excited to be co-teaching this course on family with oldest son Samuel. In the first half of the course, I will teach practical ways for parents to turn their hearts to their children. In the second half of the course, Samuel will teach five practical ways children can turns their hearts to their parents.
While family is messy and hard work, we have found time and time again, that it is worth it!
