Hans and Gunila Baumann’s three children loved the Lord, were set on walking in his ways, and wanted to impact the world for Christ. As a mom, Gunila knew there would be dangers in allowing each child to fly far away from home, but she also knew that the safest place for them to be was in the center of God’s will. Releasing Your Children to the Lord chronicles the great blessing she found in her role of supporting, praying for, and communicating with each of her children.
Parenting is the most influential job in the world. In this compelling story and concise guide, parents receive inspiring insights and principles for releasing their children to the Lord’s service—from the early teens all the way to adulthood and beyond.
