As parents, we always want to instill the best character in our children so they can have strong biblical values. But what does biblical character building look like?
I am honored to have speaker, author, and Founder of Celebrate Kids, Inc., Dr. Kathy Koch, on this episode of the Warfare Parenting Podcast. Kathy helps us explore the fundamental questions of what character truly is and how it can be nurtured in our children.
From understanding how children develop mature character to the connection between character and obedience, she explains why it is so important for parents to have a deep understanding of character as we raise our children. Kathy discusses segments from a chapter of her newest book, Parent Differently: Raise Kids with Biblical Character That Changes Culture, which I believe is a vital tool for all parents as we raise children in these uncertain, challenging times.
