Every parent needs to utilize moldable moments. They will make them better parents more focused on reinforcing the gospel in the hearts and mind of their children.
But… what is a moldable moment?
Moldable moments are spontaneous devotions led by a parent. They are shared during the natural rhythm and busyness of everyday life. While far from routine, they are powerful at sharing the heart of Christ and a parent’s love for Him.
