You probably heard more than once how becoming a parent changes everything. Now you know how much.

Life Will Never be the Same


A Family Project

Even more so than getting married, having a child is a profoundly spiritual passage of life for a husband and wife. You start thinking more earnestly about God and the role of faith in your growing family. What kind of parents will you be? Will you avoid repeating mistakes from your past? How will you spiritually nurture a new life?

Parents don’t have to go it 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.

Podcast explores the angles.

Christian husbands and wives now have the pulse on important topics for their family-building season, such as infertility, miscarriage, postpartum-depression, special needs children, and adoption. Audra Haney and Callie Grant feature guests like Kari Jobe, Carlos Whittaker, Tim Kimmel, and Diane Dokko Kim, who reveal their struggles, share their experiences, and inspire with their testimonies of faith that encourage believers in all stages.

How to grow faith as a family?

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 all parents in their faith, while equipping them for their most important role of all—nurturing their children’s faith in the vital first years. We also offer additional support for special needs children and their parents.


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 (“Evangelism is Most Effective Among Kids,” by the Barna Group).
