It was such a wonderful class and, I speak for my family as well as the pastor’s, perfect timing. As our kids (the “PK’s” of the bunch) are knee deep in the teenage season, and going to the deep end, we have been blessed by Craig’s teaching. It’s a wonderful thing to not be groping around in the dark, but to have a firm, solid grasp on the raising and training of your own children. And it’s we’re so glad to have these resources to pass along to the rest of the body. Thank you for being obedient to the Lord even when it may be challenging, monotonous and tiring.
In His Grip,


Hi Craig,

I don’t know if you remember me, but you helped with our son about ten years ago. I still remember how God used you during an important crossroad in my son’s life. It is a blessing to receive your newsletters and see how God has continued to grow your ministry and increase the variety of books and tools available to teach God’s principles about family to people around the world. I ask that God will continue to give me a heart to pray for you and your ministry and that God will continue to provide for the needs of Family Discipleship Ministries.

Your Brother in Christ,

"I think this seminar is very valuable and much needed for Russian, Christian families and non-Christians as well...it gives a biblical view on parent/child relationships and practical ways of applying it. It makes one think and examine his relationship with his child and want to improve it. On the whole, Russian, Christian families are either very young or have been together during the Soviet era or the fall of it and...lack strong...biblical foundation in the area of family relationships."

-Pastor Vlad and Svesta Oplev
Moscow, Russia

“…it was a discovery to find out that my children are the tools God uses to change me…my children are indeed a gift from the Lord and I should be a pastor to them as well as a teacher…they are my sheep who may stray away if I neglect them…I have to keep from having double standards when I am one way with them in public and another way in private. “

-Kevin and Ginger
Des Moines, IA


“This applies to all relationships that I have…I recommend this seminar to anybody who is in ministry or desires to be in ministry, whether they will be working with children or not.

“I’m very thankful for this seminar. It has allowed me to look at myself with open eyes.
