When it comes to raising godly children, many factors are outside our control. Even so, there are several things we, as parents, can do that will go a long way toward reaching this goal. Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas) and author of Running with the Horses, offers some insights here. —Dan

48.5 The Road To Damascus Versus the Agora

Our highest calling as parents is to raise spiritually mature children who can help re-form our continually decaying culture. Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas), shares some great insights on what that process looks like.

Discipleship Program  
Are any of you part of a school with a school-wide discipleship program?  We are wanting to start one at our school. I would love to hear how it works, what you like about it, what challenges you face, what curriculum you use, and any other information you can share.

We are looking at ways to update our school attendance policy. We are a small school serving Pre-K–8th grades with one self-contained class at each grade level.
