Our mission as a family ministry is to join with God and partner with parents to create passionate followers of Jesus Christ in the new generation. We want to be a resource and trusted partner for parents as they lead their children from childhood beliefs to a lifetime of faith.

What is a blessing event?

Blessing Events are designed for parents, family members and caregivers to spend intentional time speaking words of blessing over a child in their lives. The event usually involves an activity to enjoy together followed by dedicated time to read or speak a personal blessing. Separate blessing events are created for girls with women of influence in their lives and boys with men of influence in their lives.

what is a blessing?

The word blessing (or benediction) actually means “good speaking”. Blessing is an opportunity to speak words that are true about who God is and who He says we are.

Why should we speak blessings over the next generation?

  1. Blessings are an opportunity to declare truth.

  2. Blessings give our children a vision for what we desire most for them.

  3. Blessings can be a means of comfort and reassurance.

  4. Blessings can help strengthen the bonds of affection between one another.

  5. Blessings encourage parents in their role as spiritual leaders.

How do I speak a blessing?

  1. Be yourself

  2. Use meaningful touch (ie. hand on shoulder)

  3. Make sure the child knows how valuable and loved he/she is (by you and by God)

  4. A spoken/written message with “may you” statements about who they are and who God is
