Kids + Parents

Children are spiritual beings with active and important spiritual lives that must be tended, nurtured and developed. ACL specializes in helping adults foster innate spiritual tendencies in children of all ages. From consulting on church programs to our own classes and workshops, we help parents become their children’s primary spiritual guides. Our programs are developed to move children and their parents into closer relationship with God and with one another. Parents will learn the stages of spiritual development and grow more confident in engaging in spiritual matters with their children. ACL also provides extensive consulting to help churches develop thriving programs for children of all ages.

"The concentration of a small child at play is analogous to the concentration of the artist of any discipline. In real play, which is real concentration, the child is not only outside time, he is outside himself. He has thrown himself completely into whatever it is that he is doing…His self-consciousness is gone; his consciousness is wholly focused outside himself… …When we can play with the unselfconscious concentration of a child this is: art: prayer: love."
