Overview

Many parents today are searching for the "secret" to successful parenting. In Parenting by God's Promises: How to Raise Children in the Covenant of Grace. Dr. Joel R. Beeke asserts that there is no secret. When it comes to giving children what they need most-new hearts that trust in Christ for forgiveness of sins-parents are helpless. When children come to faith, it is due to the grace of God.

But while parents are helpless, they are not hopeless, for God has promised in His Word to provide all needful things for His people and to bless them and their families. With faith in these grand promises, parents may raise their children in "the nurture and admonition of the Lord" with confidence that God will work savingly in their live.
