Overview

In this wise and witty book, author, youth expert, and practicing minister Jeffrey D. Jones brings to light the spiritual aspects of parenting that are often ignored by popular experts and gurus. Jones shows you how to attend to your own inner spiritual life and to the quality of your relationships within your family. By doing so we you re-envision parenting as a transformative, joyful and spiritual practice rather than merely a set of rules and regulations or tips and techniques.

Parenting with Love and Laughter is a conversation about families and parenting that is filled with inspiration gleaned from scripture, reflections on Jeffrey D. Jones's own experience of family life, and wisdom he has gathered from years of service in the ministry. In addition, this warm and wonderful book features a bonus section at the end that provides simple designs and suggestions for group meeting-perfect for retreats, workshops, adult education classes, and parenting support groups. Use this blueprint for parenting to introduce love and laughter into your family life.
