MAP Global is so excited to introduce you to one of our newest partners, Raising Kids On Your Knees.
Tina Chambers Smith is a writer, author, teacher and founder of Raising Kids on Your Knees, and below she shares about her ministry and current ways you can support Raising Kids On Your Knees.
ABOUT THE MINISTRY
Raising Kids on Your Knees is a website dedicated to equipping parents to pray and parent life into the lives of their children. We believe that your best parenting is done on our knees and we are here to help you do just that.
There are a several ways Raising Kids on Your Knees comes alongside parents to equip them to pray and parent life into their children. One is by publishing biblically based parenting articles on topics relevant to today's parents. Through these articles, parents are challenged to walk with Jesus in their own personal lives. As parents begin walking in a healthy relationship with Jesus Christ, they will be able to impart to their children those same disciplines, thus giving their children the tools they need to facilitate their own healthy relationship with Jesus.
Secondly, Raising Kids on Your Knees has created a global Prayer Tribe in which parents around the world receive a weekly one-page prayer sheet. The prayers cover the topic of the parenting article published for that week with Bible verses that solidify the truth behind each prayer. Raising Kids on Your Knees believes that our best parenting is done on our knees and a daily discipline of prayer for our children gives them distinct advantages in the spiritual realm as well as creating a righteous heritage for generations to come.
Finally, Raising Kids on Your Knees publishes a weekly Prayer Tribe Newsletter which is sent out every Sunday via email. It refers our subscribers to the parenting article as well as linking subscribers to the free downloadable and printable prayer sheet for the week. Also included in the weekly Newsletter is a fun recipe or tip. I know and believe family life happens around the dining table as relationships with each other are our most important relationship outside our relationship with Christ.
I firmly believe the prayers of a righteous parent are powerful and effective in the lives of their children and my vision is to make that happen in families around the world.
Currently, Raising Kids on Your Knees is in the process of building a global Prayer Tribe. I do this through social media outlets across various platforms through advertising, consistent posting and collaborations.
I am in process of a collaboration with Family Life wherein we will be running a t-shirt giveaway on Instagram. This will raise the exposure of Raising Kids on Your Knees exponentially. I also look forward to other collaborations with Family Life as our mission for helping believing families is very similar.
Raising Kids on Your Knees just released its fall collection of Tribe Wear that not only helps raise funds for the website but is also great advertising.
I will be teaching an 8-week course at Trinity University where I will be able to go in depth with the women at my church on how to live a victorious life in Christ, thus setting them free to be on "praying ground" for their families.
