class-boundaries

Boundaries

Christians often focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. Do you have trouble saying no? Can you set limits and still be a loving person? Are you in control of your life? Do people take advantage of you? Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend offer biblically based answers to these tough questions as they show us to set healthy boundaries with our parents our spouses, our children, our friends and even ourselves.

Mom’s Connection

PARENTING

During our time together, we will look at a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. We will look at 14 foundational principles centered on the gospel and what we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. What we need is the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. When we are freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Mom’s Connection is designed for moms with children of all ages for a time of fellowship, refreshments, and discussion over the book.
