As I think back on my childhood, I'm convinced more and more that my parents did many things right when I was growing up. And over the years I've had the privilege to meet and know many wonderful Christians-people who've achieved success in such diverse arenas as entertainment, politics, business, and ministry-whose lives are a testimony to the fact that their parents knew some of the keys to good parenting too. Curious, I've asked them, "What did your parents do right?" Many agreed to answer that question in writing, and this book is the result.
If you are a parent, you will find much within these pages to encourage you. You will discover many practical keys to good parenting that you can put into practice today in your own home. And you will find hope!
No parents are perfect. Mine weren't. The writers in the chapters that follow admit theirs weren't either. Yet it is clear from their stories that the impact of the things parents do right-when the heavenly Father is involved in the process-far outweigh the impact of the things parents do wrong. The Bible promises that "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose" (Rom. 8:28, KJV). The stories you're about to read are a testimony to that truth.
