Episode 54: Training Kids to be Counter Cultural

Change can happen in your home and culture – and it starts with YOU!
Our friend, author & speaker Lee Nienhuis, reminds us that in order to walk out this change, it’s not all upstream swimming — it’s actually participating in what God wants to do in and through us. He partners with us in this journey and is even MORE invested in our children than we are! He is limitless in power, knowledge, and creativity — all we have to do is seek Him and He promises He will be found by us.

Ready to hear what Lee has to say about coaching the kids in our lives to obey God and enjoy relationship with him? Let’s go….

LEE NIENHUIS is a coffee drinker, friend maker, and loud laugher. She is an author, Bible teacher, podcaster and communications consultant. Her books, “Brave Moms, Brave Kids” and “Countercultural Parenting” have helped countless parents step into their roles as the primary disciple makers of their families. Her writing and speaking have been featured in places like Proverbs 31 Ministries, Focus on the Family, Moms in Prayer International, and the True Woman Movement. Lee has a heart for the global church, and has recently joined Live Global, a team who supports, trains and equips believers worldwide. It sounds like a lot, but really, Lee loves Jesus. She Believes He transforms lives, His Word is powerful and effective, and that prayer matters more than we could imagine.

Lee lives with her handsome, hardworking husband, Mike, at Grace Adventures, a Christian Camp and Training Center in West Michigan. They have four great kids who make her need Jesus. And she says, “That’s a good thing.”
