It Starts @ Home
Deuteronomy 6:4-9

1. Spiritual formation begins at home, but does not end there.

2. Spiritual formation at home is a long-term process, not a one-time event.

 3. Spiritual formation is the process of intentionally fulfilling the God-ordained purposes of marriage and family.

4. What starts at home?

   a. Character

      i. Our goal as parents is not to make our children happy.

      ii. Our goal as parents is to equip our children with the character necessary to live a life pleasing to God.

   b. Identity.

      i. When it comes to identity in the home, more is caught than taught.

   c. Purpose

      i. Every person needs a clear sense of purpose.

   d. Beliefs

      i. Faith is putting ourselves quietly in God’s hand for Him to do His will.
