Growing Strong Godly Families: Nine Essential Pillars

Updated: Jun 28, 2023

At Growing Strong Families Inc., we understand the significance of providing families with the tools they need to instill godly values within their homes. We have established nine distinct pillars to assist families in building godly values, creating a legacy of unity, and maximizing the family’s potential. These areas include spiritual growth, communication, relationships, character development, service, financial responsibility, education, health and wellness, and fun and leisure. We encourage families to take the time to prioritize one of these areas each week, as it will assist in fostering stronger, more united families.

Let’s take a closer look at each of these pillars and explore how they can contribute to instilling godly values within homes:

  1. Spiritual Growth: Nurturing the spiritual aspect of family life is vital to building a great legacy. Encourage regular prayer, worship, and Bible study together. Teach children about faith, morality, and the importance of a relationship with God.

  2. Communication: Effective communication within the family fosters understanding, empathy, and connection. Encourage open and honest dialogue, active listening, and respectful communication. Teach children to express their feelings and thoughts constructively.

Encourage love, forgiveness, and respect among family members. Teach children about the value of relationships and the importance of treating others with kindness.
