How to Raise a Pagan Kid in a Christian Home - An Interview With Barrett & Jenifer Johnson

We're building on a bit of a theme here at HomeschoolingIRL, dishing out big, overwhelming helpings of grace and the gospel so that we can all be reminded of what Jesus has done on our behalf and for our kids, too. 

Our last episode was a beautiful glimpse at the interminable topic of grace, and our upcoming episode promises more of the gospel and grace and the freedom that Jesus brings to our homes as we learn to lean on Him, not our methods or choices or parenting theories or efforts. Those things can be great tools, but the only thing that draws our children to Christ is His unending love for them.

So how do we equip our kids to have a faith that stands out in this world? What makes a Christian different than a moral and kind pagan? The difference is Jesus, and we as parents are all about the business of pointing our kids to Him. Everything else is a stab at a moral life that reeks of religious behavior, but ends up looking a lot like us and very little like Jesus.
