071: Raising Jesus Followers with Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright


“Show your children a life worth imitating!”

In this episode, Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright, shares from her book, Jesus Followers: Real-Life Lessons for Igniting Faith in the Next Generation. Rachel is the granddaughter of Billy Graham, and gives some insights about their upbringing to provide spiritual wisdom and practical advice for raising the next generation of Jesus Followers.

If we want our children to look to Jesus and trust Him completely throughout their lives, we have to demonstrate an authentic love for Him in our homes. The good news is that whether or not you were raised in a godly home, it can always start with you.
