There are some things adults just can't do for kids.

You can't force a toddler to love broccoli.

You can't make a teenager not date someone.

And you can't make a kid love God.

At some point it just starts to break down.

Playing for Keeps is a book for parents and leaders (and anyone else who influences the lives of kids and teenagers). In Playing for Keeps, you will discover six things every kid needs over time, and 18 practical ideas so you can make what really matters matter more.

About the Author:

Reggie Joiner is the founder and CEO of The reThink Group, a nonprofit organization providing resources and training to help churches maximize their influence on the spiritual growth of the next generation. He is one of the founding pastors of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, Ga.

In his role as the executive director of Family Ministry, Reggie led a team to develop concepts of ministry for preschoolers, children, students, and married adults over the course of his 11 years with the church. He is the author of Think Orange and his latest books include Parenting Beyond Your Capacity; Slow Fade; Lead Small; and Zombies, Football and the Gospel. Reggie and Debbie live in Cumming, Ga., and have four grown children: Reggie Paul, Hannah, Sarah, and Rebekah.

Kristen Ivy combines her degree in secondary education with a Master of Divinity to help churches re-think the way they practice spiritual formation, education, and discipleship for the next generation. She is the director of messaging for Orange and has played a role in launching XP3 Students, CUE Box, and Studio 252. Kristen lives out the full Orange spectrum as the wife of XP3 Students Orange Specialist Matt Ivy, and the mother of two First-Look (preschool) children, Sawyer and Hensley.

Elizabeth Hansen is a writer and story developer for Orange with a graduate degree in script and screenwriting. She and her husband, David, produce promotional and narrative films through their production company, Arclight Studios. Like Diane, she is a Scrabble® fiend. And like Simon, she is fond of hatching plots.
