This collection of quotes, stories and passages about parenting will delight your soul, remind you of your most important job, and comfort you with advice and inspiration to become the most trusted person in your child's life. We may not have an instruction manual for rearing our children, but "Packets of Sunlight for Christian Parents" is close, giving us the insight and encouragement we need to do our best. The little ones (and even the not so little ones) in our lives look to us for guidance, and now we can look here for guidance of our own. You'll enjoy this book filled with brief stories and profound messages from the Bible and other sources. The author has organized this collection well, and sitting down with it even for a few moments will guarantee you a renewed sense of the purpose and divine blessings of being a mom. The book covers everything from the value of work and prayer together to the importance of trust and home, confidence and independence. Every page is a guide or affirmation. The author reminds us near the book's end of the need to "practice what we preach," and that's especially important for us parents who are always teaching even when we don't know it. "People learn from what we do more than from what we say. Children especially, watch our actions." And fortunately, we have this book, in its warm and inspiring way, to help us teach our very best to our most wonderful treasures.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
