Make the Most of Your Time with Your Children
On the day of their baby dedication, Eryn and her husband were given a jar of 936 pennies. The jar contained a penny for every week they would raise their child until graduation, and they were instructed to remove one penny each Sunday as a reminder, placing it into another jar as an investment.
At some point every parent realizes time is moving swiftly, and they ask themselves, How am I investing in my child? Through personal stories and biblical examples, 936 Pennies will help you discover how to capture time and use it to its fullest potential, replacing guilt and regrets with freedom. Meanwhile, your kids will see how simple choices, like putting the cell phone down and going on a family hike, will make all the difference. Together you will stretch time and make it richer.
Craft a family legacy in tune with God's heartbeat as you capture a new vision for your children and learn the best ways to spend your pennies.
My thoughts: This book is an excellent way to look at parenting! I know it's so easy to get caught up in the day to day motions and forget that time is passing quickly, even when it seems like it is going slowly. I love Eryn's thoughts on finding peace with parenting and overcoming fears for the unknown. This is an great book to pick up and help parents become more intentional with the time they have with their children.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
