Publisher's Summary

Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to but anxious about their child-rearing responsibilities. They have tried countless parenting books on the market telling moms and dads what to do and how to do it. Many of these are rigid, fear-based books that leave a large number of parents feeling directionless. Now, there is a grace-based solution from Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries.
Grace-Based Parenting is a refreshing new book divided into two parts: the needs we are trying to meet in our children and the delivery system for how we meet them. Kimmel recommends creating a grace-based home environment that allows children to meet their full potential, to parent children in the same way God parents us. He presents a child's true needs -according to Scripture - and provides parents a realistic, do-able way to meet them.
The result: spiritually strong children who grow up with a sense of calm and a heart full of purpose and confidence.
Please Note: Chapter two from the original print version has been intentionally omitted from this abridged audio version.
