Do you ever wonder if you're doing the best you can to raise your small children? I do, all the time. I want my children to be adults that change the world, by changing the world around them, and to that end, I just finished reading a book that I think is one of the best books to help us parents bring up our children "in the Way they should go".
by Dr. Kara E. Powell
Did you know that nearly half of all children that were raised in Christian homes tend to leave the faith when they become adults? That could explain many of the challenges our society faces today...a generation that does not understand what it means to live for others. It's time for us to change this.
While there are books that encourage and books that only quote scripture, I liked the fact that this book gives you concrete steps you can take to strengthen your families....advise and tips from other families that have worked for them, and may work for you. And really, you don't have to be of the Christian faith to benefit from this book...because almost all of the suggestions are about living a life of love, for your family, and for your world. And with the step by step suggestions and real life stories, there are also thought provoking questions at the end of every chapter. So this would be a great study for family devotions or small groups.
Go ahead, and get a copy for yourself, and share it when you've read it.
