Parenting is a school for
spiritual formation, says author Gary Thomas, and our children are our
teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our
children profoundly alters us forever;even when the journey
is sometimes a rough one.
Sacred Parenting is unlike any
other parenting book on the market. This is not a "how-to" book that
teaches readers the ways to discipline their kids or help them achieve
their full potential. Instead of a discussion about how parents change
their children, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses children to change their parents.
beyond the overly-tilled soil of method books, parents can learn a
whole new side of parenting. They’ll be encouraged by stories that tell
how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a
parent – and how their children transformed their relationship with God.
lessons the author writes about are timeless. But in this edition,
Thomas adds in some additional insights and stories that he’s learned
and lived over the past fifteen years of his own parenting. Gary has
found that the lessons have remained much the same but there are new
applications for the readers in this generation who are just now coming
to his book.
