characters Growing with ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Many parents of a teenager or young adult feel as though they're guessing about what to do next with mixed results We want to stay connected with our maturing child but we're not sure how And deep down we fear our child doesn't want or need usBased on brand new research and interviews with remarkable families Growing With euips parents to take steps toward their teenagers and young adults in a mutu. One of the most reliable and respected voices in youth ministry over the past couple of decades has been the work of Fuller Seminary and its most recent iteration as the Fuller Youth Institute FYI Anyone seriously involved in youth ministry particularly in congregational settings would do well to keep a watchful eye on their work After undertaking some major research initiatives aimed at learning about young people the church s ministry to young people and the overall trends shaping faith development in young people FYI and their staff have been hard at work examining and interpreting their findings Kara Powell made a big splash in the youth ministry world coauthoring the book Sticky Faith in 2011 alongside youth ministry pioneer Chap Clark a widely respected book More recently in the 2016 book Growing Young the authors all FYI staff presented trends within churches they identified as successfully engaging young peopleNext week available March 5 a subseuent volume focuses on parents and their roles in helping teenagers and young adults in their faith family and future as the subtitle reads While I found Growing Young a solid resource for helping spur honest discussions among fellow church leaders about how we can effectively engage young people in our ministry Growing With hit me between the eyes in its practicality and directness I have read few books that had a direct bearing on my stage of life and the realities of everyday life It isn t often that I read something and find myself referring to it or recommending it so often and so uickly after I have been reading it but the stuff that Kara Powell and Steven Argue talk about are the life shaping faith forming issues of the every day life of young peopleThe first part of the book presents a highly readable and entirely accessible description of the nuances at play in the broadening category known as young people including the broad spectrum of teenagers adolescents emerging adults and young adults On the surface it seems a bit of a stretch to address parenting insights of children from 12 to 29 but the first section sets the course for how it makes perfect sense They adeptly highlight the paradox of today s youth culture that faces mounting pressure and expectations at younger ages leading to a growing up earlier dynamic while at the same time prolonging life choices that once were looked at as initiating a person into adulthood marriage having children and determining careers As these broader sociological realities have elicited a great deal of attention in recent years Powell and Argue tackle the dramatically important topic of the dynamics of faith development throughout this changing stage of lifeThey present three dynamic verbs which provide the backbone for the book withing faithing and adulting They explore the evolution of these verbs through the young adult development from learners 13 to 18 year olds explorers mid teens to 23 and focusers most of the 20s While I found the language a tad clunky at times the picture they draw of what it is like to navigate through this time of life from both sides as a young adult and as a parent really brings to life the issues at hand in faith development They emphasize an often neglected point for parents that parents and their relationship and role is changing just as the child is experiencing dramatic changesThe authors dedicate one section to each of the verbs withing faithing and adulting and do a wonderful job of integrating statistically validated insights parenting stories from their own families wisdom from others and practical suggestions for implementing the ideas they propose At the end of of the each of these chapters there are several suggestions for experimenting with withing philosophies see what I mean about the clunky play of the wordsI found myself nodding my head often as they talked about the uniue challenges and needs of the learners currently where my own children are Powell and Argue come across as transparent and authentic as they discuss their own challenges as parents sometimes looking back at mistakes they ve made in the past while at other times confessing the challenges of their current life setting There is nothing trite about their proposals They tackle head on many of the complexities facing families today including economic challenges facing young adults starting out on their own increasing complexities in romantic relationships online relationships having a gay or transgendered child and the call for parents to say something about their faith Christianity Today ran an article adapted from this book highlighting this very point I especially appreciated their acknowledging that faith discussions can seem forced awkward and challenging even for ministers talking to their own children but they remind the readers how essential it is to have these intentional conversations This discussion alone is worth the time and money of the bookThere are few voices within youth ministry that speak with the authority and respect of FYI and this book will do nothing but further their reputation I can t recommend this book enough to any parent of young people or to anyone who cares about the faith we are passing on to young people in the church today Each chapter ends with a series of uestions that will help facilitate deep and meaningful conversations about a very important topic and I hope to lead a class at our church using them very soon Do yourself a favor and pick this book up soon Find a group of parents that you can

characters Growing with ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Al journey of intentional growth that trusts God to transform them all By highlighting three groundbreaking family strategies authors Kara Powell and Steven Argue show parents that it's never too early or too late to accept the child you have not the child you wish you had work toward solutions rather than only identifying problems develop empathy that nudges rather than judges fight for your child. Incredible Resource I have read many other resources created by the Fuller Youth Institute and writers Kara Powell and Steven Argue and all of their work has been heavily steeped in both research and practical ways to apply their findings When they announced they were teaming up for Growing With I knew the book would be another invaluable resource that would give me specific ways to implement effective strategies in our youth group and with my future kids Growing With did not disappoint it comes from two experienced parents youth mentors and researchers and it provides clear and data based explanations for all the tips and recommendations offered The overarching premise that we need to grow and adapt as parents just as we expect our kids to grow and adapt seems obvious but this book challenged me to think deeply about my own growth in a new way Powell and Argue give new language and understanding to general stages of development and the corresponding roles that parents need to fill to best parent their child at every phase of life Within each phase they also explain with useful practical ideas how we can grow together as a family they turn with faith and adult into verbs and provide examples of how parents can incorporate withing faithing and adulting into family routines and norms Best of all they leave room for you to apply all of their strategies within your specific context but they are never condescending or assuming They understand that parenting is messy and complex and that the kids in our lives are eually dynamic and complicated They aren t here to tell you that you are failing as a parent in fact they do a great job of sharing their own parenting struggles and encouraging readers in their own challenges As someone who is expecting a baby this spring I am so grateful to have this book early in my parenting journey It s given me a rich understanding of how I can focus on my own growth while adapting to meet the needs of my son as he becomes an adult But even if you don t have kids anyone who works with youth or wants to be a meaningful contributor to a church body will benefit from reading this book I took away tons of ideas for my role as a youth pastor and I have fresh language to give my congregation about how they can pour into the lives of our young church members My book is full of highlights especially in the sections where they list specific tactics or initiatives to try I am eager to apply these with my own child and with the youth in my church and I will be returning to this book often
