Overview

Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children will profoundly alter us forever.

Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book you have ever read. This is not a “how-to” book that teaches you ways to discipline your kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us.

You’ve read all the method books. Now take a step back and receive some much-needed inspiration. You’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent—and how their children transformed their relationship with God. Sacred Parenting affirms the spiritual value of being a parent, showing you the holy potential of the parent-child relationship.

This book will absolutely transform who you are as a parent and a person or at least the way you approach your 'job' as a parent! As a Christian mom, this book challenged me on so many levels. It has set me on a course to not only be a better parent, but to see my role as a mom as not only eternally important in pointing my kids to authentic relationship with Christ, but also in shaping ME to be more like him so that I can be effective in that endeavor! I cannot recommend this book highly enough for every Bible-believing parent!

This book forced me to think about what God wants for my children instead of what I want for my children. It also helped me understand some of what God wants to change about me through parenting. It's not an easy read, but a great point of view that I had never considered before.

By far the best parenting book I have ever read, and I have read plenty of them! Not a "how to" book on raising kids. It is an extremely encouraging book on the benefits raising kids bring to your walk with God. Every time I read this book, I feel spiritually uplifted and so much better equipped for the journey. This book really helps you realize that you are not alone and that the myth of the perfect family is really just a myth. I plan to buy a copy for every family member for Christmas this year!

We decided to do this book as a group study this year. I kind of wished that I had gotten the real book version instead of the ebook, but oh well. The book itself it wonderful, refreshing, encouraging and definitely a different look at what parenting really is. Highly recommended read for parents of children 0-12 years old.
