Be Intentional

Jesus was intentional.

  • He chose who he invested in (his disciples).
  • He prepared others for their future (the last supper).


  • Be a credible source to your kids. Do they have a good reason to listen to or believe you?
  • Be proactive! A good offense is the best defense.
  • Take charge and be your kids’ guide. Are they going to listen to their peers, the marketers, Hollywood, or you?
  • Plan meaningful discussions during the activities you already do with your kids (hunting, camping, shopping, road trips, bike rides, etc.)

Be Practical
