Even more so than getting married, having a child is a profoundly spiritual passage of life, as husband and wife enter a dramatic new phase in marriage and personal growth. At the same time, God brings their child into the world already primed to know and to grow in him.
This confluence of transitions often has new parents thinking more earnestly about God and what faith will mean to their growing family. What kind of parents will we be? Will we avoid repeating mistakes from our past? How will we spiritually nurture a new life?
Couples don’t have to wrestle with these issues alone. A body of knowledge found in the Bible and from Judeo-Christian experience throughout the ages speaks directly to this major life event. Created by Graham Blanchard’s well-regarded development team of parents, teachers, and pastors, the Newborn Promise Project App serves as a hub presenting vital resources to help today’s new families trust in Jesus during this transformative season.
The Newborn Promise Project App includes:

This App complements “Your Newborn Promise Project: A Pre-Parenting Primer for Christian Husband and Wife” and “Your Newborn Promise Project Group Study” by Callie Grant, Audra Haney, and Charissa Kolar (both titles, Graham Blanchard Inc., Aug. 1, 2017).
For children ages 0-7, Graham Blanchard created the original Learn, Absorb, and Praise board book collection, which interconnects with the five sections of the Newborn Promise Project primer and group study: Love, Remember, Seek, Question, and Persevere. Bringing it all together, “Wings: An Enriching Activity and Coloring Book” helps young children to start thinking about what life “born of the Spirit” means for them (John 3), as they imagine, create, solve, and draw (Graham Blanchard Inc., Oct.1, 2017, ages 4 and up).
Graham Blanchard’s mission is to build up families in Christian faith. For more information, visit www.grahamblanchard.com.
