This week on License to Parent with Trace Embry… Trace Embry and Rich Roszel talk again with author Karen Whiting who joined us last week to discuss her devotional book for girls entitled “My Princess Devotions,” and how we as parents can help our earthly princesses relate to their Heavenly Father. This week, we’re discussing her book, “The One Year Devotions for Active Boys.” Boys are not wired the same way girls are and tend to be doers more than readers. Karen’s book is designed to engage boys to study God’s Word and His world. We’ll share how to get your son to read the Bible.
Today’s topics include:
- Ways to start your son’s journey into Bible study and spiritual self-assessment.
- Are boys typically more kinesthetic learners?
- Why do boys read as compared to why girls tend to read?
- How do we convince our children, particularly our sons, of the need to delve into scripture?
- The challenge of establishing proper role models in our sons’ lives.
- The steps to getting started on a routine of daily devotions.
- How to weave humor into the reading of God’s Word.
- How parents can be involved when they feel they don’t have all the answers.
- How can children trust God when the world around them has gone mad?
- How do daily devotions shape the lives of our young men?
- What do you do if your kids DON’T want to get engaged in daily devotions.
