Raising the Remnant
Over 75,000 parenting books have been published in the last two decades alone - that's nearly 10 books per day! Indeed, opinions on parenting abound, but are there any solid facts to be found?
ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIVE DATA THAT IDENTIFY THE KIND OF PARENTING MOST LIKELY TO PRODUCE SPIRITUALLY STRONG YOUNG ADULTS?
Yes! Recent research has indeed painted a remarkably clear portrait of the character, values, and practices of parents whose young adult children are now thriving spiritually. Raising the Remnant not only reports on these George Barna research findings, but also uncovers that this very same traditional advice was given in the 19th century!
What are the successful parents like?
What is their #1 priority?
What is the single most important factor in raising a spiritually strong young adult?
IF I WANT TO HELP MY KIDS BECOME SPIRITUALLY STRONG YOUNG ADULTS...

Does the number of kids I have matter?
Should I expose my kids to the world or shelter them?
What about friends and social connection?
How many activities should I get them involved in?
