Family Faith-Building Academy

What if you could transfer your faith to your children and feel confident they'd never want to turn away from it? Did you know?

  • Research indicates 70-88% of children raised in Christian homes who regularly attend church still leave the faith by early adulthood–and an alarming percentage never return to their faith.

  • One of the primary reasons youth abandon the Christian faith is because they never personally owned their faith.

  • 35-42 million youths raised in Christian homes will depart from their faith over the next 30 years.

  • So what are the majority of Christian parents doing wrong? Why aren't more kids embracing the faith they were raised with? And what can YOU do to change it for your own children?

  • Family Faith-Building Academy is the answer to the question millions of Christian parents have wrestled with for decades. You'll learn the keys to building a strong and abiding faith in your children to confidently launch them into adulthood without fearing they will turn away from their faith. Katie will walk you step-by-step through everything you need to know to cultivate a vibrant faith in your kids in ways that are fun, meaningful, and memorable, so that they own their faith from childhood.

What others are saying about Family Faith-Building Academy

“As Christian mothers we are always being told we need to disciple our children, but no one ever tells you how to do it. Katie in the Family Faith Building Academy does just that. She breaks it down into simple ideas and examples of how to put discipleship into practice. But she goes one step further by having you solidify what you believe by taking the time to write it out. Because if you don't truly know what you believe, how can you pass those beliefs on to your children? I came away from this program with a stronger ability to express of my beliefs, with a sense of what I want to impart on my boys, and with the knowledge of how to go about doing it in our everyday life.”

Jennifer B. - Atlanta, Georgia

“Katie'sFamily Faith-Building Academy is a comprehensive guide to help you determine the foundation your family will build their faith on. The course is thought-provoking and helps you delve into the depths of what you believe. Katie also helps you discover ways to make worship, prayer, and Bible study a wonderful adventure for both you and your children. It's all about focusing on creating moments that matter, growing in grace, and helping your children build a foundation of faith that will last a lifetime. Ultimately, I feel better equipped to help my son grow in the belief that he is infinitely loved by his creator (and be unafraid to share that hope with the world). If you're struggling to find a way to disciple your children, I highly recommend this course.”

Jennifer D. - South Carolina

“As a homeschool mom of 7 years, I've seen that what's essential to a thriving and motivating homeschool commitment is support. Even with the best Christian curriculum on the market, I had to ask myself, 'Am I covering my foundational discipleship bases in my family?' When Katie launched this new course I knew I wanted to be one of the first to get my spot reserved after the impact her first book, Dishing Up Devotions had left on my family by cultivating togetherness and drawing our hearts closer to each other and the Lord (I literally ran to Amazon and purchased copies for my friends in no time.) Especially with the age ranges my children are (12 down to newborn), I look forward to Katie's insight and expertise on family and faith-filled discipleship!”

Millie R. - South Carolina

“Katie is such an inspirational and compassionate encourager! She has truly helped me lead a better homeschool life built in God and helped me find the confidence in myself as a teacher to my own children! I am so grateful to have found her.”

Tori G. - Arizona

  • How do I know if this course aligns with my beliefs?

    If you are a Bible-believing, Jesus loving disciple, this course is for you! This program isn't designed to tell you what or how to believe. It's created to empower you to instill YOUR faith in a way that truly connects with your kids and builds a strong, enduring faith through an approach that is fun, meaningful, and memorable. In the first module, Katie guides you through how to clearly define your family's beliefs and values in a way that is simple and 100% Bible-based. In the majority of resources where scriptures are cited, Katie provides options in the King James Version (KJV) or English Standard Version (ESV) so you can choose your preference. And you're always encouraged to read from and search through your own personal Bibles.

  • How will this course help me if I've already been discipling my kids for years?

    You're in a great place to start Family Faith-Building Academy! You already know how important discipleship is and you've prioritized it in your family! Family Faith-Building Academy will help you reexamine what you've been doing and determine how to maximize the time you have left with your kids to assure you make the greatest impact and build the strongest foundation you can before you launch them into adulthood. Research shows that a staggering amount of children who grow up in Christian homes and participate in regular routine spiritual disciplines are still leaving their faith in alarming numbers. Why? Because their faith became routine and lost its relevancy. It wasn't meaningful, memorable, and fun. It didn't translate to transformation and wasn't rooted in intimate relationships with God and their parents. Family Faith-Building Academy is the missing ingredient in your family's recipe for a vibrant faith. This course will provide you with the tools you need to reevaluate your strategy moving forward and give you everything you need to put the FUN back into the FUNdamentals of family discipleship. It will help you make the most of the time you have left with your children in your home.

  • If I've already purchased a Bible curriculum, do I still need this course?

    That's great that you've already chosen Bible-based curriculum! This course is designed to compliment what you're already doing for family discipleship. AND, it will give you the tools you need to make sure you're not wasting a bunch of time, money, or energy on things that don't matter along your family discipleship journey! Consider Family Faith-Building Academy the ice cream base to your discipleship sundae. You'll be able to build a foundation from the course and add in whatever flavors, mix-ins, and toppings you choose along the way to personalize your journey to meet your family's unique needs. This course provides the framework for success so you can feel confident knowing you've faithfully stewarded the few short years you have to train up your children in the ways of the Lord.

  • Do I have a limited amount of time to access this program?

    You have lifetime access! Also, all of the Family Faith-Building Academy content is downloadable, meaning you can save the lessons onto your computer, so you will always have access to it. Whenever, wherever.

  • Is it too soon to start the course if my child is still a baby or I'm not yet a parent?

    Now's the PERFECT time to take this course! You'll be able to establish a solid foundation from the beginning and have the tools you need to develop a successful family discipleship strategy without all the stress, confusion, and overwhelm of trying to figure it all out by yourself!

  • How is this course different from all the free discipleship resources I access each year?

    Conferences and masterclasses are great for encouragement and tackling various faith-building topics. However, you could spend hours and hours searching for and watching workshops from different speakers, struggling to implement all the various strategies and end up feeling more confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed--wasting years trying to figure out what works for your family. But with Family Faith-Building Academy, you have a clear roadmap and personal guide to walk with you through everything you need to know to effectively disciple your kids in just 6 weeks! You'll get a proven plan to eliminate the overwhelm and help you feel confident and capable of building a firm foundation of faith in fun, meaningful, and memorable ways.
