You may not be aware that Parenting Like Hannah is actually a branch of a larger ministry, Teach One Reach One. Recently highlighted by the Points of Light Foundation in its Daily Points of Light Award, Teach One Reach One has resources parents can use, too.
Under the parenting tab on the Teach One Reach One website, you will find links to a free baptism study (with leader’s guide), how to adapt Teach One Reach One activities for families and a link back to Parenting Like Hannah. You can also take a look at the parenting workshops you can bring to your church or community. There is even a link to something we are very excited about developing.
In the near future, we hope to have parenting booklets on a variety of topics – all written at a lower elementary reading level. We want every parent to have access to basic Christian parenting principles written in an easy to understand format. Eventually, we hope to have all of these resources translated into multiple languages.
Under the teacher tab on the Teach One Reach One website, there is some hidden gold for parents. Looking for an activity for your kids that reinforces Bible lessons? Want to help them review academic subjects or learn a new skill while they review Bible stories? Look under the lessons section for bible lessons and lots of activities for each story. All of the activities are hands-on, including meaningful crafts, games and service project ideas. As you can tell, this section is under development and new activities and lessons are posted on a regular basis.
Don’t forget to take advantage of our subject search feature on the Parenting Like Hannah website. Struggling with how to best discipline your child? Trying to help your child become an independent Bible reader or have better manners? You will probably find one or more categories where we have grouped all of our past posts on that topic together.
