The Sticky Faith Guide for Your Unique Family addresses one of the top current concerns about youth and the church: the reality that nearly half of all young people raised in Christian families walk away from their faith when they graduate from high school. That’s the bad news. But here’s the good news: research also shows that parents are one of the primary influences on their child’s faith. This book arises from the innovative, research-based, and extensively field-tested project known as “Sticky Faith,” designed to equip parents with insights and ideas for nurturing long-term faith in children and young people. Because of the Fuller Youth Institute’s six years of research with more than 500 young people, 100 churches, and 50 families, four of this guidebook’s unique qualities make it a “must have” for families eager to point their young people toward long-term faith. First, it’s grounded in sophisticated, academically verified data. While Dr. Powell is a parent of three children who authentically weaves her own experiences throughout the book, the chapter topics correlate with parenting principles proven in national research. Second, it is positive. Amid gloomy and theoretical resources, this book leaves parents empowered and hopeful that even little tweaks to their family rhythms can make a big difference. Third, it is practical. Readers get what they want most: more than 100 ideas from other parents they can try today, this week, or this month. Fourth, its “guidebook” format is accessible. For busy parents who don’t have time and inclination to read, this format is a welcome resource that they can return to time and time again for fresh ideas and inspiration.

Most parents would give anything to anchor their children with a vibrant faith that “sticks” and continues to mature long-term. Yet despite this deep desire, research indicates that approximately 40-50% of high school seniors drift from their faith after graduation. In response to this problem, the Fuller Youth Institute (FYI) has launched the College Transition Project, a national longitudinal study following 400 high school seniors during their first three years in college. This provocative and needed research is geared to spark a movement that empowers parents, churches, leaders, and adults of all ages to develop robust and long-term faith in kids.

Both national leaders with broad spheres of influence as well as local, grassroots practitioners are waking up to the reality that 50% of their graduating seniors struggle deeply with their faith in college. Offering a few special “Senior Seminars” or giving seniors a “graduation Bible” and hoping for the best are both too little and too late. FYI’s research confirms that it’s never too early to start developing faith that continues to grow and lasts. Sticky Faith gives youth workers both a theological/philosophical framework and a host of practical programming ideas that develop long-term faith in teenagers.

It takes a whole church frog - head (leadership), torso (body), and legs (home) - to raise persons of faith in a world set against the ways of God. Frogs Without Legs Can't Hear: Nurturing Disciples in Home and Congregation challenges church professionals and volunteers to shift the center of faith formation from the congregation to a shared center involving the home and ministry in daily life. Drawing on five principles that define the congregation-home partnership, and four key faith practices that promote faith development, David W. Anderson and Paul Hill have written a timely and provocative book keenly suited to ministry in the 21st century.

Forever change the direction of your family’s spiritual legacy ... starting now!

Kids spend more waking hours in school than in their homes, and while there, they face many challenges to their faith. Public schools have become increasingly secular environments filled with unique challenges for Christians. The statistics on kids and faith reveal that roughly 60-80% of Christian teens walk away from church and only about 10% come out of those years with a biblical worldview. It is no wonder many Christian parents are apprehensive about their kids attending public school. They often feel powerless when their child heads off to school day after day. Navigating Public Schools was not written to debate whether kids should be in public schools or not because the fact is, the majority of Christian kids are in public schools. Navigating Public Schools was written to parents who are hungry for guidance on this journey. This book will empower Christian parents to navigate public schools with the aim to 1) cultivate strong relationships with their kids in a season of immense secular pressure; 2) help their kids stand firm in their Christian faith and worldview; 3) become salt and light for Christ in the school environment. There are also excellent resources for anyone involved in the public school system: teachers, administrators, volunteers, and pastors.As a public school teacher for ten years, Stephen saw first-hand how a child's faith may be eroded, and desires to equip parents to protect their children's faith in schools. This book is perfect for busy parents and concerned adults who want clear tools to navigate curriculum pitfalls, exercise their rights in schools, build a strong worldview foundation as a family, and be a light for Christ in the public school system.

Teenagers are tired of vague or nonexistent answers to their tough questions about God, the Bible, and Christianity. Just when they're capable of diving into the deep end of their faith, all too often the church keeps them splashing around in shallow waters. As eight years of Sticky Faith research on teenagers has shown, it's not doubt or hard questions that are toxic to faith. It's silence. The trusted voice of the Fuller Youth Institute and proven best practices from churches around the country converge to provide you with tools both to start conversations about hard questions, as well as to lead students toward discovering their own faith convictions.
