If You Passed Your Baton…TAKE IT BACK

Chuck Stecker, Colorado Springs, CO
President, A Chosen Generation

Ten Minutes That Transform

David Maddox, Dothan, AL
Businessman and Author

When Jesus answered the Pharisee’s question concerning the greatest commandment, He quoted: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matthew 22:36, Deuteronomy 6:5). When tempted in the wilderness, He quoted three passages from Deuteronomy to resist each temptation (Matthew 4:1-11). If the sinless Son of God used the Word of God to do battle with the evil one and to reason with critics, would not that be a good pattern for our children and us?

Following the “greatest commandment” in Deuteronomy, God gives profound and practical instruction for parents: “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your heart. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up” (6:6-7). This book is written to equip parents in applying this scriptural truth.

David has served in both career and volunteer ministry, but none more important than raising five children. After ten years of youth ministry, he transitioned into the business world. For the past thirty years he has been active as a dad, a Sunday School teacher, a supply preacher and a speaker at conferences for men, including Iron Sharpens Iron conferences.  He has a Bachelor of Psychology degree from William Jewell College (Liberty, MO) and a Masters of Divinity degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (New Orleans, LA).

Mentoring Made Easy

Joel Fiscus, Lancaster, PA
Vice President, CSB Ministries

Most Dads realize the importance of investing in their son but don’t feel competent about where to begin. They are unsure how to engage their son in shoulder-to-shoulder activities while teaching biblical principles in a non-preachy way. Some men didn’t have Christian men invest in them so they are at a loss about how to start. Dads long to create lasting memories with their son, teaching them biblical truths while engaging in an activity they both enjoy. Mentoring Made Easy will give you proven principles and point you to tools and methodology that will enable you to be effective and a candidate for the coolest Dad ever.
