135: Developing a Solid Faith Foundation in our Children with LeeAnn Mancini

The statistics show that a lot of kids leave the Christian faith when they become teens and young adults. Is there anything that adults can do to help change this pattern?

In this episode, our guest Lee Ann Mancini shares with us about her passion for helping parents develop a solid faith foundation in our children. She believes that, when parents begin instilling faith at a young age, that this will help reverse the trend of kids walking away at older ages.


Lee Ann shares tips and ideas for parents who want to do this, as well as ways for churches to be more proactive in this area as well. We also discuss the power that mothers have in this process and  how they can still be a strong role model for their kids even if they do not have a believing spouse.

Developing a Solid Faith Foundation in our Children:
  • LeeAnn’s life and leadership [3:00]
  • Helping kids have a solid faith foundation [6:40]
  • The church’s responsibility in developing a faith foundation for kids [16:00]
  • How parents can approach their church if they feel more should be done [20:00]
  • What moms can do if their spouse isn’t a believer or isn’t leading the family in faith [24:00]
  • Leaders are Learners [26:30]


Key Quotes from the episode:


  • “Children are getting set to the side with little Biblical doctrine being taught to them.”
  • “Moms are powerful. I don’t think we get enough credit for what we do as moms.”
  • “Don’t wait; start now.”
  • “If you force a child to do something, then that’s not building a heart foundation in Christ.”
