    a great Christian advice book for parenting!

    Basically, this title says it all. This book is a parenting guide that uses the Bible as a teaching tool. I found it very interesting and useful. The author, Kara Durbin, goes over some of the ways she has used the Bible, even when her kids were very young, to teach them what the Bible teaches on different topics, not just about right and wrong. Kara even uses a passage from Deuteronomy to explain what teachable moments are; anytime you and your child are together.

    What I found the most useful, was the way the book is set up. This is a book you will use on a daily basis if you have kids, long after you have finished reading it. After you read the intro and the teachable moments chapter, Kara lists 15 fabulous verses to memorize, they cover a broad array of topics that you may need/want to use when teaching your kids on a regular day, such as; Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.—EPHESIANS 6:1. Kara even gives some methods to help both you and your kids memorize the scripture verses, breaking it down by age. Kara also talks a bit about praying and how to pray with your children.

    But, the best chapter, in my opinion, is the Topics chapter. In this chapter Kara lists almost anything you can think of that you may need to parent a child on, for example, anger, in alphabetical order, like a dictionary. First, she gives the definition of the word, then she lists verses where anger is discussed in the Bible, and lastly she has some discussion questions to use with your kids and a take action part that gives some real life reinforcement activities you can use.

    I know that this will be a book that I will use when I have kids. It is a great tool if you want to teach your kids how to interact with the Bible in their daily lives and what the Bible teaches us about almost everything under the sun.

    I highly recommend this book to parents, Sunday school teachers, or even to teachers at a private school where you can talk about the Bible.

    Quick Resource for Busy Parents

    This book is excellent for parents who want a resource to help with those teachable moments that pass quickly. When you are dealing with a specific issue with your child--guilt, discipline, fighting, etc.--this book can lead you to appropriate Scripture to share with your child. You are reinforcing your position with Biblical references. The book also includes ideas for discussion, ways to take action, and parenting tips. This is all presented in an easy-to-read format. All the topics all in alphabetical order for easy reference. I have also found the book helpful for me as well.

    This book is a A-Z topical guide to assist parents in teaching biblical principles to their children. Some topics covered include responsibility, forgiveness, discipline, complaining, and humility. Each topic is presented in the same way; readers are given a definition, several bible verses, discussion questions, and then an action plan.

    Although this book is presented as a topical guide for teachable moments, in the introduction it discusses other uses for the book that I think are just as effective. One of the suggestions is as a topical devotional guide for the child or the whole family. I think it would be a good devotional guide for anyone.

    I really enjoyed reading through this book. I thought the referenced verses were relevant and applicable, yet familiar and easy to understand. I appreciated that the discussion questions were straight-forward and easy to use with children and the Take Action section was easy to implement. I also thought the length of each study topic was well-suited to a busy parent’s schedule or a child’s shorter attention span.

    This would be an excellent book for parents to use together so they are on the same page when addressing behavior problems with their children. It would also be a great study book for a mom’s group to study and practice scenarios so they are prepared when presented with a teachable moment with their children. It would also make a great gift to new parents.

    I highly recommend this book for any parent who is committed to teaching biblical principles to their children. It is an easy-to-use, handy guide.

    I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
