This Week’s Christian Parenting Challenges

Social media outlets are limiting access to more and more posts from non-profits like Parenting Like Hannah. We don’t want you to miss our daily Christian parenting challenges and their tips and encouragement.

We have decided for now, we will re-post the challenges for the previous week each Friday. You may want to tackle them during the weekend or post them on your refrigerator and using them for ideas in the coming week.

To make it easier for you, we have listed them by the original date they posted, but you can use them on different days or do several in one day – whatever works best for you. (The content is copied directly from our social media posts, so some of the wording may appear a little out of context.) We are hoping delivering the challenges to your email in a printable format will give you a helpful, new resource to use in parenting your kids towards God.

Monday: There have been a lot of things about our COVID world that are frustrating. Sometimes frustration can lead to unhealthy choices…even sinful ones. If you or your spouse is struggling with substance use/abuse, abusing your children physically or emotionally, experiencing depression/anxiety/suicidal thoughts, or you are having severe marital issues or anything else harmful or frightening…please reach out for help. People in ministry can still be reached by DM, email or phone. Don’t suffer in silence. Get the help you need now. If the first person you ask doesn’t respond, keep asking until someone does. You are not meant to handle this alone. God gave us the Church in part for community to help in stressful situations. Reach out to your church family for the help you need.

Tuesday: Your summer plans for your kids may have been changed, but to what? What can you do this summer to help your kids achieve your number one priority for them – spiritual growth? If that isn’t your top priority or you aren’t sure how to help them grow spiritually, we can help. Search past blog posts or go to our main ministry website for ideas.

Wednesday: Did you realize you probably aren’t seeing everything we post on Facebook to help you? If you go to our website and sign up for the newsletter you will receive no more than four emails a week from us – three new blog posts with tips, ideas and encouragement…and starting this week, a summary of our daily parenting challenges you can use each day in the coming week to give you a daily Christian parenting boost. So head to and sign up today!

Thursday: This container has all the ingredients for a wonderful pasta dinner. What, however, are the ingredients of a strong faith foundation for your kids? Check our blog this afternoon for some important basics. In the meantime, feel free to share what you think are some important things kids need for a strong faith foundation in a comment below.

Friday: We live in a world that loves to keep us anxious. Teach your kids how to manage their anxiety through scripture, prayer and godly pursuits like hobbies and exercise. If not, they may turn to less healthy or godly ways to manage their fears.
