Eight Essentials of a Healthy Home

by Pastor Tommy Nelson

A peace-filled household, time spent together and godly role models - these are a few of the elements that help children grow into well-adjusted adults. But what else can parents provide to promote their kids' emotional and spiritual well-being? Tommy Nelson, an author and the senior pastor of Denton Bible Church in Denton, Texas, lists the needs all children share which he has gleaned from scripture; biblically-based advice on what parents can do to meet these needs in a God-honoring way.


1. A child needs a house of peace.
< Proverbs 15:16‐17 and 17:1 >
2. A child needs time with their parents.
< 2 Samuel 14:28‐33 >
3. A child needs to be taught truth.
< 2 Timothy 3:1, 10, 14‐15 >
4. A child needs an example to follow.
< 2 Timothy 3:14 >
5. A child needs to feel loved and highly esteemed by his parents.
< Colossians 3:21 >
6. A child needs acceptance.
< Proverbs 22:6 >
7. A child needs affection.
8. A child needs discipline.
< Proverbs 13:24, 19:18, 22:15, 23:13, 29:15 >
