FREE RESOURCES FOR PARENTS

Who doesn't love free stuff? Well, we're a bit partial in Impact Kids, but we think the only thing better than free stuff is free stuff that helps you grow in your relationship with God and with your kids. So, we decided to pull back the curtain on many of the parenting tools we use to help you win at parenting.

Back To School Pack

Considering how 2020 has gone so far, it’s likely that the school year will be unpredictable, too. But one thing is certain—back to school means a new rhythm for the entire family.

In all the chaos and adjustment, it can be difficult for families to create intentional moments to connect in meaningful ways. This worksheet is designed to help you do just that—be intentional about the things that matter to your family during the 2020-2021 school year.

Prayer Calendar

This 30-Day Prayer Calendar was created as a tool to help parents pray daily for their family. Each day consists of a prayer prompt. While there are “weekly” themes, if you miss days in between, that’s okay! You can simply pick up where you left off.

Use it once for 30 days or use it to create a cycle of 30 days that you repeat over and over as you continue to pray for your family throughout the year.

Work Kids Can Do

As parents ourselves, we all know how important it is to teach your kids and students responsibility, but mowing the lawn unsupervised may not be the best idea for a 3 year old. With that in mind, we've included a Phase-specific list of age appropriate chores. We've also included a chore chart for you to download and print to use at home.

CONVERSATION GUIDES

As parents, we all have great intentions on having the BIG talks with our kids while they are in our care, but sometimes we just don't know when to do it or have the right words. That's where Conversation Guides come in! As a church, we want to help you win in the parenting world by giving you the tools to be better with the most important conversations you will ever have with your kids and students. 

Faith

A discussion about faith looks different at every phase. It can be talking with a preschooler about Jesus being God’s Son or with a student who is having doubts for the first time. We wanted to make these Phase-specific Conversation Guides available to you so when the need arises, you’ll be ready to talk to your child about faith.

Salvation (for kids)

This is an exciting time in a kid’s life. They’re starting to ask questions about their faith. They’re wondering about God and His love for them. They may be asking a lot of questions about Jesus—questions that you may struggle with yourself, or questions that may not have a simple answer. But that’s okay. This is a starting point for your kid to begin a life-long conversation about faith. Click below to access this specific Conversation Guide

Sexual Integrity

Are we really going to talk about this? If you want your kids to grow up with sexual integrity, then the answer is – YES! But we’re not talking baseballs and butterflies here. No, this talk is a bit harder. That’s why we want you to have these helpful conversation guides for you so you can LEARN what to say (and what not to say) to your kid at each phase along the way.
