Valerie Bell and Matt Markins want to equip parents to raise kids who are 'resilient disciples' for Christ, which they define as people who won't give up their faith when faced with pressure from today's culture. On this Focus on the Family broadcast, Valerie and Matt outline and examine the three 'B's' for developing resilience in children: 1) Belong – providing a community of believers and at least one loving adult who will point them to Christ. 2) Believe – emphasizing the truth of God's Word. 3) Become – training children how to become disciple-makers themselves. Valerie and Matt also explain the important balance between the 'spine' (God's truth) and the 'heart' (God's love).
