Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord

With encouragement and humor, Dave Stone reminds us that raising children who love the Lord is not impossible.  It is incredible.

Simply stated, children will love the Lord when parents love the Lord.  Within this book are simple ways to ensure parents are setting a good example for their children.  Investing in our children requires commitment, courage, and candor.  We have to be intentional when spend more time on hobbies than we do with our children.  We have to do the hard thing such as saying no.  We have to be honest when we fail and apologize to our children.

When we fail, which we all will, Stone reminds us that God is more concerned with direction than He is with perfection.  I so needed this reminder.

Being a parent is more than just providing food, clothing, and shelter.  It is about providing children with the foundation they need to trust in God for themselves.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for my review which I freely give.
