Parenting in the 21st century presents timeless challenges and also the unprecedented influence of outside forces. Our children are faced with a multitude of influencers—media, internet, peers, and others who don’t offer the messages that we want them to hear. How do we raise children in this environment? H.I.M. offers a wide range of programs and products to equip you to raise your children to honor God, their families, and their communities.
