Through compelling, insightful stories from parents and grandparents who've been in the trenches, Glen and Ellen Schuknecht demonstrate why that heart-level connection is so crucial in building long-lasting, connected relationships with a foundation of Christ. These stories are intertwined with ideas, tips, and biblical truths any parent can engage with, including a parent-coaching questionnaire to help readers build a more connected parenting style. The authors' fresh approach empowers parents to find their own vision for their families, tailor-made to their children and their circumstances.
There's no magic formula here--just truth, grace, and hope instead of to-do lists. Glen and Ellen come alongside fellow parents and grandparents to help them find the ideas they crave, the hope they need, and the grace they must have to raise passionate and God-connected future generations.
With three adult children, eleven grandkids, and over forty-five years in Christian education, the Shuknechts are asked a lot of parenting questions. But the most common question is always "How do I raise my kids to love God and love family - even after they've left my nest?" The truth is that all the rules in the world will do nothing if parents don't reach their kids' hearts.
