From the Inside Flap

Parents want to be involved in the spiritual development of their kids, but where do they begin? How can we help them? Mark Holmen points out that passing your faith to the next generation is significant and encourages parents to build their home on Deuteronomy 6:7. Going beyond the why of passing faith to the next generation, the author gives practical tools for parents to use in sharing faith with their children. His desire for parents to succeed is evident as he shares personal letters with a parent who struggles, as all parents do, to practice this in daily life. Parents will gain a better understanding of God's plan for passing faith to the next generation and learn practical ways to make it happen in their homes.

About the Author

Mark A. Holmen is a husband, father, pastor, coach, speaker and author of numerous books including his new book for church leaders Church + Home A Simple Faith@ Home Strategy for Churches and his ever popular Faith Begins At Home line of books for parents. From October of 2002 through February of 2009 Mark served as the Sr. Pastor of Ventura Missionary Church and during those years he developed and implemented a model for becoming a Faith@Home focused church that has grown into a national and international Faith@Home movement supported by the Willow Creek Association, Randall House and Focus on the Family.

Format: Paperback
In the book, Holmen walks through Deuteronomy 6 and its implications for parents. This is a good book to put into the hands of new parents as they seek how to pass on faith to their children. Holmen does a great job of looking to specific verses from Deuteronomy 6 and making them practical in our day to day lives. At the end of each chapter, Holmen writes a letter to a friend summarizing the content of the chapter. At first, I thought this was redundant, but then I understood Holmen's heart for the friend to whom these letters were written. He explains how these letters were specifically written to someone who probably would never pick up his book. Holmen also includes questions for small group discussion at the end of each chapter.

The specific chapters focus on different aspects of parenting. He starts with the goal of parenting which by the way is not good kids, smart kids, artistic kids, or athletic kids. He writes, "A good parent is one who leads his/her children into life not death." He then focuses on having a family mission statement. He continues by clearly showing the importance of living faith at home and not outsourcing the faith of our children to the church. His next chapter focuses on true love. He asks this question, "As a parent who is trying to lead your children to know, love, and follow Christ, it comes down to do you know, love, and follow Christ?"

Holmen then makes the 10 Commandments personal to his life and for his family. This is a great chapter as he makes clear the importance of following the commandments not out of ritual, but instead out of relationship. He ends the book by specifically looking at how we talk about faith and walk the walk in the home.

Format: Paperback
Mark Holmen's book Impress Faith On Your Kids is a great resource for many people - whether you be a minister without kids or huge family. Through the book, Mark offers not only practical advice, but gives ideas for certain practices that can be applied within the home. The advice & practices are all supported Biblically & are presented in a way that makes this book great for personal use within an individual family. If you are a minister in search of resources or need a way to present the D6 model to parents of your congregation then this is an ideal read. Mark also includes very personal letters to the readers & discussion questions that would make this book a good resource for a small group of people trying to implement the D6 model into their families.

Impress Faith On Your Kids is written in a very readable way that connects to the minds of people needing the information from a mind that has digested & lived the information first-hand. From identifying what it is to be a 'great parent' to the transition D6 requires to the problems Christian parents face, Mark discusses very well what the families in our churches in America can establish to start their journey to being a D6 family.
