When are children old enough to participate in church? Robbie Castleman, a mother of two and author of the book Parenting in the Pew, tells Dennis Rainey how parents can involve their children in the worship experience.
Robbie Castleman is Professor of Theology & Biblical Studies at John Brown University. She is known affectionately by her students as "Dr. C."
Besides the books listed here, she has contributed chapters to several other works: Faith on the Edge, For All The Saints, Shaped by Faith, My Heart, Christ's Home Devotional, and my husband and I wrote the study guide for Howard Synder's Community of the King. I also have contributed to the Baker Handbook of the Bible and have written for several journals.
I am married to a good man who loves me well, Breck Castleman. Our older son, Robert Dayton, is an artist and works as the museum manager for 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas. Our younger son, Scott Breckinridge, is a pastor, like his father and grandfather, in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Breck and I also have a beloved beagle named Gilbert and five wonderful grandchildren!
