It Starts at Home gives the philosophy behind Faith@Home at Weems Creek. For better or worse, the home is the primary context for spiritual formation. Below is a six-part video series that we have made available to you. We invite you to go through these videos by yourself or with your spouse and take time to talk about how you can take steps to make your home more God-honoring, either in your marriage or as parents. Each Bible Study session includes interviews with parents talking about their own doubts and fears as well as powerful teaching to equip and inspire you from Kurt and Olivia Bruner, Gary Thomas, and Matt Chandler. The six-part video-driven series is available for streaming below. 

To go further, consider purchasing the Just Add Family Kit or the book It Starts At Home by Kurt Bruner and Steve Stroope at the Faith@Home Center.  Also be sure to check out Recipe Cards and the Intentional Parenting and Intentional Couples podcasts for more ideas on how to be intentional at home.
