    FABULOUS resource These prayers are bookends in the first and last chapter of the book and are really helping me frame this stage of parenting as I am growing with my kids We are all on a journey Jesus, our kids are growing us and we are growing older These truths weigh heavily on us, some days than others There are moments when it feels like we re growing together and other times when we fear we re growing apart By your grace, please grant us faith to trust you with our kids as well as courage to grow with them through our parenting Spark in us a expansive vision for this journey a vision not only about who they might become, but also about who we might become Growing With, page 18 Jesus, we thank you that in the midst of the ups and downs of parenting, we can place our hope in you We are grateful for how you use parenting to prune us and shape us and into your image Please help us abide in...

    Growing With Every Parent s Guide to Helping Teenagers and Young Adults Thrive in Their Faith, Family, and Future by Kara Powell and Steven Argue Powell and Argue acknowledge that parenting, once considered an eighteen year endeavor, really stretches far beyond that Most children growing up in the Millennial and iGen generations are not fully launching into their marriages, careers, and new households until closer to the age of 30 With that in mind, Powell and Argue in collaboration with a series of interviews with parents, have divided the teen and young adult years into three stages These stages begin with learning 13 17 , exploration 18 23 , and focusing 23 29 As their children traverse through these stages, it should be the goal of adults to go through the stages of teaching, guiding and becoming a resource to their children With that mind, Powell and Argue develop both general guidelines and some specific ideas of how to interact with teens and young adults along the way.I think that this book is a veritable treasure trove in parenting the modern teen and young adult More than anything, this a book of advice in how to let go of control over your child, letting go without becoming overly distant It s a difficult balancing act, and as my oldest child just turned fourteen this week, it is something that I expect will heavily figure into my next ten to twenty years of rela...

    One of the most reliable and respected voices in youth ministry over the past couple of decades has been the work of Fuller Seminary and its most recent iteration as the Fuller Youth Institute FYI Anyone seriously involved in youth ministry particularly in congregational settings would do well to keep a watchful eye on their work After undertaking some major research initiatives aimed at learning about young people, the church s ministry to young people, and the overall trends shaping faith development in young people, FYI and their staff have been hard at work examining and interpreting their findings Kara Powell made a big splash in the youth ministry world coauthoring the book Sticky Faith in 2011 alongside youth ministry pioneer Chap Clark a widely respected book More recently in the 2016 book, Growing Young, the authors all FYI staff presented trends within churches they identified as successfully engaging young people.Next week available March 5 a subsequent volume focuses on parents and their roles in helping teenagers and young adults in their faith, family, and future as the subtitle reads While I found Growing Young a solid resource for helping spur honest discussions among fellow church leaders about how we can effectively engage young people in our ministry, Growing With hit me between the eyes in its practicality and directness I have read few books that had a direct bearing on my stage ...

    Growing With s subtitle Every Parent s Guide To Helping Teenagers and Young Adults Thrive in Their Faith, Family, and Future captures the book s purpose well I came to the book expecting excellence, as I always find with Fuller youth Institute materials I hoped to be able to use it as a resource for families in my church I was happily surprised to find I can still use the material with my own children even though they are past their teen years The authors help parents navigate from the early teen years to late 20s and perhaps beyond Though I feel like our children are fairly well launched, I still learned quite a bit about how to maintain close contact and have good conversations as we grow geographically farther apart I will use the tools they offer to stay with my kids and to talk about their faith in different ways as we all grow.Powell and Argue use three verbs to help parents during the three stages of their children s growth Withing how do we relearn to actually be with our children, not simply around them Faithing how do we help our kids navigate the changes in their faith with patience and optimism, realizin...

    Growing With is a book by Kara Powell, and Steven Argue and it comes out of Fuller Seminary s Youth Institute Seriously, the things that they produce are THE BEST resources on students, faith, and ministry for youth This book is no different The book comes out of some extensive research on young people teens twenties and their faith habits and patterns Growing with takes an honest look at the trends for faith in young people today, and draws out ways that parents, ministers, and friends of young people can help to inspire faith in the next generation Some of this research can feel tedious as you read through the first part of the book, but Powell and Argue do a really good job of balancing important information and practical tools for parents Withing, Faithing, AdultingGrowing With is all about how parents can grow together with their children as they mature, leave home, and make big life decisions in their 20 s The book breaks this Growing with strategy up into three categories Withing, Faithing, and Adulting The focus is on how parents can help their kids grow in life, in faith, and in interdependence as they age and mature One of the most impactful takeaways from the book for me was the way Powell and Argue redefined the stages our kids transition through as they grow up They argue that as young people grow up they move through three different phases Learner A season of rapid physical, emotional, relational, ...

    Incredible Resource I have read many other resources created by the Fuller Youth Institute and writers Kara Powell and Steven Argue, and all of their work has been heavily steeped in both research and practical ways to apply their findings When they announced they were teaming up for Growing With, I knew the book would be another invaluable resource that would give me specific ways to implement effective strategies in our youth group and with my future kids Growing With did not disappoint it comes from two experienced parents, youth mentors, and researchers, and it provides clear and data based explanations for all the tips and recommendations offered The overarching premise that we need to grow and adapt as parents just as we expect our kids to grow and adapt seems obvious, but this book challenged me to think deeply about my own growth in a new way Powell and Argue give new language and understanding to general stages of development and the corresponding roles that parents need to fill to best parent their child at every phase of life Within each phase, they also explain with useful, practical ideas how we can grow together as a family they turn with, faith, and adult into verbs and provide examples of how parents can incorporate withing, faithing, and adulting into family routines and norms Best of all, they leave room for you to apply all of their str...

    Kara Powell and Steven Argue begin Growing With by pinpointing the dilemma our kids face in the crucial season between 13 and 29 years of age On the one hand, our kids sophistication has accelerated and it seems like they are getting older earlier but on the other hand, they feel less mature as the typical markers of adulthood are now delayed In other words, the transition to adulthood begins earlier and lasts longer in this generation than in previous generations.How we parent our children changes as they age Powell and Argue define Growing With parenting as a mutual journey of intentional growth for both ourselves and our children that trusts God to transform us all Growing With helps Christian parents navigate those changes by describing three stages of development our kids go through.In the learner stage ages 13 18 , our kids enter a season of rapid physical, emotional, relational, intellectual, and spiritual growth and change As parents, our primary role in this stage is as teachers, not in the sense of telling them what to do, but in the sense of learner centered teaching In the explorer stage ages 18 23 , ou...

    Kids They don t come with an instruction manual, and even if they did, every few years it seems like they have become a totally new person, a new model, and a new manual is needed Kara Powell and Steven Argue have done a pretty good job of consolidating some of those manuals to help parents as they navigate the everchanging waters of toddler to adulthood It would be easier if every child were the same, grew the same way, met the same milestones, had the same questions and issues at the same time and matured on a schedule Easier but nowhere near as much fun Since I parent only one child, I wasn t quite as aware of how different siblings can be, I m one of 4 so should have known so this book was an enjoyable read Growing With Every Parent s Guide to Helping Teenagers and Young Adults Thrive in Their Faith, Family and Future Baker Books, 2019 has as a central premise that parents to journey alongside their children through the different stages of maturing, stages that they call learners explorers and focusers And as the child s role changes, so does that of the parent, as we shift from teacher to guide to resource One of the things that most impressed me about this book, is how they use common words in a new way nouns such as adult and faith become the verbs adultin...

    Parenting teenagers and emerging adults proves difficult for many Kara Powell and Steven Argue present a fantastic model for doing so in Growing With They begin by developing a model of adolescence that enables the parent to understand how they can guide their children through each stage of growing This model begins with children being learners ages 13 18 traditional adolescence This age group is characterized by physical, spiritual, mental and emotional growth and change Parents can come alongside their learners as teachers, guiding them as they learn about themselves After this children emerge into the stage called Explores ages 19 23 In this stage children move away from home, pursuing goals and relationships Young people are often unsure of themselves during this stage Parents walk alongside them during this stage as guides, helping their offspring explore their goals and desires Finally, young people reach the stage of Focusers ages 23 29 Focusers have hopefully developed into young adults who have assurance in their talents and an understanding of what they wish to do with their lives At this point parents are resourcers, providing helpful guidance when asked and helping their offspring to claim life and live it Following the development of this family theory and how emerging adults and parents should interact with one another, Powell and Argue apply their theory to various areas of life They do a beautiful job exploring relationships, ...

    With four kids are between the ages of 17 27, my husband and I are in the thick of parenting the young adult It has quickly become apparent to us that this parenting gig doesn t get any easier We never anticipated that parenting at this stage would zap so much of our psychological, spiritual and emotional energies and many times we ve lamented, Nobody prepares you for this season of life We always thought we d launch these kids and all would be well But it s not like that The dynamics, challenges and pressures are intense at this stage and they re always changing It sure would be great if there was a guide or something Enter to the scene Growing With I loved this book for the clear and understandable explanation of what to expect from the emerging young adult and also for the practical ways that we, the Christian parent, can grow alongside our children in their journey.Using their extensive research and personal stories, Powell and Argue first lay the groundwork for understanding the complex nuances of three developmental stages of the young adult which they have named Learners, Explorers, Focusers Next, they lead the reader into understanding the three roles of the parent that coincide with those stages Teacher, Guide, and Resourcer By teaching the reader terms like withing , faithing and adulating , the authors show in very tangible ways how parents must matur...
