Research shows that what parents teach and model in the home is more influential, as much as two to three times more influential, than any church program.  The Bible clearly depicts (Deuteronomy 6, Joshua 24) that the home is the primary place where faith is to be nurtured with the church serving as a life-long partner, not replacement, that is continually equipping parents to know, tell and be the Christian story with their children in their homes.  Dad Cents is an inspirational yet practical [email protected] resource that helps parents know, tell and be what they need to know, tell and be regarding God’s approach to money.

Financial problems are a major cause of marital distress and create havoc in many lives.  One of the greatest gifts we can give to our children that will stand them in good stead throughout their lives is how to be good stewards of God’s many gifts—especially our financial resources.  Tragically this is an area in which many well-meaning parents fail.  Shane’s book is an invaluable gift to every dad (and mom) who want their children to have practical and biblically-based principles and tools to help them develop the skills they’ll need to be faithful stewards throughout their lives and enjoy greater personal and professional success.

Though I was very young, I clearly remember when my dad started giving me an allowance.  He taped three little boxes together.  On one he wrote “Church,” on the second he wrote “Savings,” and on the third he wrote “Spending.”  Then he gave me three nickels—one for each box.  He started simple and small, but my dad’s early instruction on managing money has influenced me all my life.  In similarly practical ways, this book can help dads influence their children’s views about and uses of money to the glory of God.
