WILL THE WORLD CHANGE YOUR CHILDREN...

...or will your children change the world? That is the premise to Julie Ferwerda's ONE MILLION ARROWS. In it, Julie discusses the importance of not just raising "good" kids, but kids who will be instrumental in shaping the world around them for Christ.

As Ferwerda says, discover what's possible for your children by:

*Recognizing that time is short and they are here to help save lives.

*Helping them discover their unique God-given mission in life.

*Shaping them as arrows in the hands of Jesus Christ, ready for the mission.

*Creating a sense of adventure for the whole family.

*Engaging in the lives of others, especially children around the world.

*Watching them live out God's dreams for them.

Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; —Psalm 127:3-5
