Welcome to Turning Hearts Ministries!
The last verses in the Old Testament (Malachi 4:5, 6) and, after 400 years of silence, the first message from God in the New Testament (Luke 1:17) reveal an important truth: in making ready "a people prepared for the Lord," God has purposed to "turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers."
Families are of critical importance to God's purposes. We are not in families for convenience or social order, but because God designed us this way. God planned the family to be a foundational structure for promoting worship, evangelism, discipleship, godly fellowship, learning about His world and His ways, studying and loving God's Word, and training to serve Him. All these are ways that God turns our hearts from sin and self to Him, and as the above verses reveal, families are a key instrument in turning hearts.
