Overview

Plenty of parenting books focus on how to fix bad behavior. Not so many focus on how to cultivate a child's heart. Even fewer focus on how to deal with our own hearts as parents.

My First, Second & Third Attempts at Parenting is not a how-to book. It's a collection of stories and reflections designed to help you discover the elusive, yet most important, part of parenting: the heart. Chapter by chapter, story by story, we will examine God's heart toward children and our hearts as parents, as well as how we can prepare our children's hearts to know and love their heavenly Father. 

Steve Murrell is the cofounder and president of Every Nation Churches & Ministries, a church planting movement with a vision to plant churches and campus ministries in every nation. So far, Every Nation has planted churches in sixty-nine countries.

In 1984, Steve and his wife, Deborah, went to the Philippines for a thirty-day mission trip that turned into thirty years and counting. They are the founding pastors of Victory Manila, one church that meets in fifteen congregations across Metro Manila and has planted churches in over sixty Philippine cities and twenty-two nations. Today, Victory has more than 8,000 discipleship groups that meet in coffee shops, offices, campuses, and homes throughout Metro Manila.

Steve is the author of WikiChurch and 100 Years From Now, and coauthor of The Purple Book, a foundational Bible study with more than one million copies in print.
