Never Say No
The question Mark and Jan Foreman are most often asked is: How did you raise your kids?
Mark and Jan Foreman’s adult sons Jon and Tim Foreman of Switchfoot have influenced their world not only by a successful music career but also through their positive impact on communities around the globe. The Foreman parents instilled in their sons a belief that they could make a difference by living beyond themselves.
This powerful book gives readers an inside look at the process. It begins with both parent and child finding their identity in God. It then explores practical ways to encourage holistic learning while cultivating specific gifts, nurturing creativity in a media-saturated culture, and balancing structure with individual choice. Never Say No inspires readers to raise children to live in the wonder of life by loving others well. Parents will find encouragement for their own parenting journey as they guide their kids to live out God’s purpose in radical ways.
My thoughts: I enjoyed this parenting book! It is written in a great style for busy parents, this book is filled with great ideas on how to parent creatively, raising kids to best use their unique gifts. I love some of their creative ideas on how to make family dinners and time together as a family more fun and meaningful! They use a great combination of personal experiences, stories, and scriptures to bring home important points.
This is a wonderful parenting tool that I will return to again and again.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
