I never knew how hard of a blessing that being a parent can be, until I became a mom. We are challenged each and everyday! This book does not give you step by step instructions, but it is full of amazing advice. This is a book that will be great to reference back to in the future. This book is about how we can change as parents and how to help our children.
In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
I had never read anything from Tripp in the past and I think this book was a great first read of his work. He has a lot of encouraging advice for us as parents. We need the gospel working in our own lives before we can help our children.
There are 14 chapters within the book: Calling, Grace, Law, Inability, Identity, Process, Lost, Authority, Foolishness, Character, False Gods, Control, Rest, Mercy
