Parent Study Group
Lasting Legacy: An Online Study Group for Parents
About the Group Leader:
Jane Johns loves children – and their parents! She has been married for 40 years to Jeff Johns, Sr. Pastor of White Horse Christian Center in West Lafayette, Indiana. They are the parents of six grown children, grandparents to eleven, and spiritual parents to hundreds. Jane has been ministering to children since she was a teenager. She has served as the Director of Children’s Ministry for over 30 years. She is a tireless learner, having earned her Ph.D. in Christian Education Ministries through and continuing her education at White Horse School of Ministries. Jane’s heart and mission is to see that children are trained up in the ways of the Lord because they are the next generation of leaders in the move of the Holy Spirit. Jane has learned to trust Him to lead and direct her through all the seasons of her life – from raising little ones to caring for aging parents. She has a powerful, real-life testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness.
About the Group Study:
The study group is designed to meet the needs of busy parents, both young and old, single and married. Participants will be emailed on a weekly basis as a large group. They will then have the opportunity to respond on a one-to-one basis. Jane will assign a portion of the current book being used in the study. Every Monday, she will give her thoughts regarding the portion of the book assigned, to which participants may respond directly to Jane. The study may be done at whatever pace works best for each participant. The goal of the study is to make valuable parenting nuggets available from the materials as well as from Jane’s rich store of experience and wisdom.
About the Current Study:
In this book, Dr. Stanley reminds parents that their stewardship role in raising their children requires a hands-on presence. He guides you as you learn to create and maintain a loving, loyal parent-child relationship, using these four main themes:
- Children are a gift from God
- You should treat them with love and respect
- You should hand down to them your faith, instilling in them moral values
- You should demonstrate your own accountability to God.
By focusing on these things, you can raise confident, happy, self-controlled kids who will hold fast to the values you’ve taught them.
