“I remember the day you were born.”
“Turn down the music!”
“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”
“Hold my hand.”
You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to
what you’re saying? In fact, your heavenly Father wants to tell you many
of these same things.
Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when
you’re raising children—she has seven! But this lovely devotional book
will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools,
cut fingers, and carpet crawlers. You’ll learn how to recognize God’s
instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.
I thought this book was pretty good. As a mom of six children, I could identify with a lot of what the author said. I always appreciate a book that finds a nice balance between parental responsibility and personal accountability of the child. Even better is when a parenting book offers insights without being pushy about personal parenting styles and rather shares nuggets of wisdom they’ve learned while parenting rather than telling everyone else why their way or method of parenting is far superior.
This is a devotional book. It is not a parenting guide. Having said that, it may help you to have more patience with your children. It may also help you see areas of your life that you need to work on yourself. It’s awful easy as adults to expect certain behaviors from our children when we’ve not fully mastered them ourselves. This is especially true of our relationship with out heavenly father.
I hope that you find this book to be as much of an encouragement as I did! If you’d like to read this book, I’m giving away my copy so that I can be a blessing to another mom (or dad) who needs it!
