Item description for Discipling My Family: Leader's Pack [With Workbook, Leader's Guide and Pastor's Guide] (Discipled Nation Plan Curriculum) by Jim Dyet & Jim Russell...
Overview According to a 1999 National Institutes of Health study, 99% of Americans long for more meaningful family relationships. This ranked higher than financial security (98%), sexual satisfaction (82%), and job satisfaction (78%). We see this statistic lived out in our own over-burdened, strained relationships and those of our family and friends. One result: the divorce rate within the church is equal to that of the greater population. In a 2001 research study, George Barna found that: More than 90% of the born again adults who have been divorced experienced that divorce after they accepted Christ, not before. It is unfortunate that so many people, regardless of their faith, experience a divorce, but especially unsettling to find that the faith commitment of so many born again individuals has not enabled them to strengthen and save their marriages. In addition to divorce, families are left to deal with trying social issues. In a recent Wirthlin Worldwide survey conducted for Pfizer and USA Today, responding parents indicated that they have had to talk with their children about: *Illegal drug use (69%) *Underage alcohol use (64%) *Sex before marriage (52%) *Mental illnesses/disorders (16%) It is well documented that drug addiction, physical and sexual abuse, and violent crime can be traced to broken families and relationships. These statistics show us how great the need is, where the hurt is. Churches and believers need relevant tools that help build or rebuild loving family relationships on Jesus' teaching. This is the challenge of Discipling My Family. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Workbook Discipling My Family is a 10-session course on how to disciple our family.
