Top Parenting Picks

These are the books I say every parent should own!

Parenting With Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments Parenting With Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments by Kara Durbin

rating: 5 of 5 stars

WOW! This is what I call a parent's dream book! This is a book that any/all parents should own and keep at their finger tips. Kara gives you a topical book with scripture references, discussion guides, action steps, and several other great, easy-to-use tools. Whatever the situation may be - discipline, questions, devotion time - this is the book that will give you the answers with the passages written right out along with things to ask your kids and things your kids can do to learn through the situation. She covers topics from anger to love, from hate to godliness, from joking to suffering.

rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an easy-to-read parenting book full of hands on, practical tips to apply NOW! I like how she gave some good food for thought and then followed that with a toolbox section that applies each chapter. It's also easy to refer to and will be a book you will want to keep close to your finger tips through the years of parenting.

Shepherding a Child's Heart Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp

rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book should be the first book any new, old, or expectant parent should read. A great book from a Biblical perspective with LOTS of Biblical insight on how to raise our children. And really, it should be required reading each year for all parents. We all need to refresh our focus.

Parents' Guide to the Spiritual Growth of Children (Heritage Builders) Parents' Guide to the Spiritual Growth of Children by Kurt Brunner

rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is a "must have" for all parents - new or not so new. While it is a thick book and looks "scary" it's really quite easy to read and full of resources that you will not need to read "now" but refer to along the way. I really enjoy how it breaks down the childhood years into 4 categories and gives realistic goals and targets for what a child should know by the end of each stage. AND, what I like the most is toward the back of the book where it gives specific, easy to refer to, tips to go along with each of those "knowledge" points for each eage group. Can I just simply say this is a great book?!
