Parenting in a spiritually mismatched home comes with some unique attributes. United parenting is often a considerable challenge when mom and dad do not hold similar views. Personal decision-making stems from our core beliefs. Obviously, when one parent holds a Biblical viewpoint and one does not, conflict can arise over seemingly simple parental decisions.
For example, has this happened to you?
Susie answers the phone and says, “Dad, it’s for you.”
Dad who is busy working in his home office calls back to Susie, “Tell them I’m not home.”
Mom, who is listening to this exchange, cringes and this question springs to her mind. Is my spouse teaching our child to lie?
Yikes, how does a believer handle this scenario?
I welcome your suggestions.

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
