Orange Breakout // Parenting Beyond Your Capacity

Because I’ve covered the 5 parenting skills in a million ways on this site before, I will not go into too much detail on this breakout. This breakout was led by Carey Nieuwhof and Reggie Joiner, and it is based on the book they’ve released here at Orange.  The book is called “Parenting Beyond Your Capacity”

Parents too often forget to have a strategy for the spiritual lives of their kids

Remember the 5 Values?

  1. Widen the Circle
  2. Imagine the End
  3. Fight for the Heart
  4. Create a Rhythm
  5. Make it Personal

The biggest takeaway: God isn’t to be used like the fine china.  He’s holy and all-powerful, but the’s as  available as anyone anywhere!  We need to work our lives around Jesus, not treat him as something to only bring out every once in a while.
