BOOK REVIEW | Sticky Faith

Sticky Faith by Dr. Kara E. Powell and Dr. Chap Clark 12 years old, but it continues to be one of the most valuable parenting resources that I’ve run across. I appreciate the fact that it’s not all that up to date as it relates to social media and technology since it’s several years old…but demonstrates that the principles don’t really change, the methods do. This book is a great read about what it takes to intentionally disciple your kids.

I highlighted several things while reading and have posted those notes below…

  • Defining Sticky Faith:
    • Sticky Faith is both internal and external.
    • Sticky Faith is both personal and communal.
    • Sticky Faith is both mature and maturing. p. 22
  • The core of Sticky Faith is developing a clear and honest understanding of both the gospel and biblical faith.  As our kids are led into an awareness of their significant role in the kingdom of God demonstrated throughout Scripture, they will have the best chance of discovering a faith that is compelling and life-giving. p. 32
  • Spiritual disciplines do not make us righteous because we do them, but rather they put us in a position to be drawn intro trusting Christ more fully. p. 35
  • Your goal is to train your kid to see life as a whole, connected adventure, versus a frantic race from one expectation and agenda to another. p. 65
