The Newborn Promise Project


Biblical support to thrive in a major life transition.

Even more so than getting married, having a child is a profoundly spiritual passage of life for a husband and wife. They start thinking more earnestly about God and what faith will mean to their growing family. What kind of parents will they be? Will they avoid repeating mistakes from their past? How will they spiritually nurture a new life?

Couples don’t have to wrestle with these issues alone.

A body of knowledge found in the Bible and from Judeo-Christian experience throughout the ages speaks directly to expecting and new parents about this major life event. Created by Graham Blanchard’s editorial team of teachers, pastors, and parents, Your Newborn Promise Project: A Christian Pre-Parenting Primer for Husband and Wife along with Your Newborn Promise Project Group Study explore the vital role of the spiritual abilities to love, remember, seek, question, and persevere. The Primer includes related discussions of five newborn facts of life, as well as Learn, Absorb, Praise, and Connect planning activities. It serves as the foundation for the six-session Group Study, both of which are supported by Your Newborn Promise Project True Story Videos.

Newborn Promise Podcast and App
extend the many conversations.

Christian husbands and wives now have the pulse on important topics for their family-building season, such as infertility, miscarriage, postpartum-depression, and adoption. Co-author Audra Haney features guests who reveal their struggles, share their experiences, and inspire with their testimonies of faith that encourage believers in all ages and stages. The Newborn Promise Project App offers the podcast other community resources.

How to grow faith as a family?
Search and explore together.

Christians of all ages follow Jesus by learning from him, nurturing their inner life with him, and recognizing his majesty and movement in their daily lives. Graham Blanchard’s Learn, Absorb & Praise™ children’s books and additional Connect resources for parents are thoughtfully designed to prepare, encourage, and support parents in their faith, while equipping them for their most important role of all—nurturing their children’s faith in the vital first years.


And there will never be a better time for a child. Research today confirms what wisdom has long understood: the first years of a child’s life are the most important time for cognitive, social, and emotional development, and are essential for establishing a life-long love for Jesus (see Evangelism is Most Effective Among Kids, by the Barna Group).
