How to raise godly children in a godless world
Do you feel like you’re fighting a losing battle? Against the culture, against the busyness, sometimes even against your spouse and kids… Often it seems like everything is against you as a parent, and your everyday life can feel far from joy-filled. But it doesn’t need to be that way. Parents Rising will show you eight cultural trends that parents are up against today and what you can do to claim victory.
This book is about growth not guilt. It’s not a pep talk, or a “try harder” speech. This is real help for real problems that every parent faces. It’s a way to focus your efforts so that they’ll be more effective and you’ll be less exhausted.
My thoughts: This book is excellent! I love that Arlene helps empower parents to take a stand for their children. I was very encouraged by the different topics that are covered in this book and love how she goes over the role of electronics in the upcoming generation. This book has so many wonderful topics, the strategies are: Amusement is not the highest priority, Parents call the shots, Rountine and boundries provide security, the Bible and prayer every day, Marriage takes a front seat, good food served on the table (the importance of family meals), Love spells T-I-M-E, and launching adults, not babying children. While I knew the importance of a lot of these topics, I felt like this book does a wonderful job of digging deeper and showing parents why.
This is an excellent book about intentional parenting.
I received this book from Moody for my honest review.
