What is Visionary Parenting?
- Visionary Parenting is God’s vision for parenting. The biblical purpose of parenting is to do all in our power to impress the hearts of our children with a love for God and others, transforming them into disciples of Christ.
- Scriptural reference: “Love the Lord with all your heart and with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give to you today are to be upon your hearts. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down and when you rise.” Deuteronomy 6:5-7
