September 2019 Parent Newsletter

It’s Time to Get Growing!

With a new school year on the horizon, attention turns to goals for learning and growing. To encourage academic improvement, many schools now emphasize what psychologist Carol Dweck calls the “growth mindset” a belief that anyone can learn and grow with effort. Potential is unlocked when children believe they can learn from challenges and by working hard. This same approach can work when it comes to faith growth. In this month’s newsletter, you and your family will dig into ways to grow forward in faith together in the glow of God’s grace and unconditional love.

Highlights of this new issue include:

  • Inspiring activities and ideas that promote faith growth at home.
  • Discussion starters and games that’ll inspire great conversation about what faith growth looks and feels like.
  • A review of new books, movies, and apps.
