Good Word!

The book had some good parenting insights and great scriptural truth, but moved a little slow at points for me.

Not your run-of-the-mill parenting book

My first encounter with this book was as the basis of an adult Sunday School class. I found it so helpful that I went out and bought the audio version to listen to it again. I have no doubt I'll listen again in the future.

This book helps parents to be real, dealing with real children and real life circumstances. Unfortunately, far too many parenting books see children as blank slates for parents to write upon, clean disk drives to program, or Pavlovian dogs that we can teach to drool on cue. And of course, they teach parents how to look good (i.e. "super spiritual) in the process, because that's really what it's all about, isn't it? If we raise our kids right, they'll be great trophies of our parenting skills.

Well, "Spiritual Parenting" is not that kind of book at all. It's all about humbly, lovingly, intentionally creating atmospheres that invite our children to taste the grace of God, and that invite God in as the welcome Lord (and as the ONLY perfect Parent). It deals wisely and LOVINGLY with the inevitable mistakes and sins of both parents and children, without ever disrespecting the individuality of either.

The narrator is the author herself, and she reads with all the feeling that one would expect from the woman who cared enough to write the book, and who is often sharing her own stories, or the stories of others that personally impacted her.

Highly recommended.
