Ep. 169 Raising Young Creators, with Jordan Raynor
Inspiring Boys to see Work as Worship.
Jordan Raynor has always been passionate about creativity and productivity, and he has written a number of best-selling books on these topics. In his new book, The Creator in You, he inspires our children to start young! Jordan wants kids to recognize that work existed from the very beginning – even before sin entered the world…and that God is a creative, working God, who invites us to be little creators, too!
Jordan and I talk about work as a spiritual theme, how we as parents can inspire our kids to value work, and the role of chores and doing hard things. If you have little kids, this is a must listen. But for all of us, this conversation should inspire an appreciation for all the work we do (Motherhood counts!) and encourage us to raise our children to dream, create, and work hard, all to God’s glory.
