Product Description

Although everyone would seem to agree that parents should attend to their children's spiritual development, few books or other resources pay attention to the spiritual lives of parents themselves. Might parents see their responsibilities and actions differently if they were conceived as a set of practices that nurture their own faith lives, as well as those of their children? Reframing parenting in this way alleviates the need for parents to be all knowing authority figures who impart spiritual knowledge to children, and empowers parents to notice what they are already doing as potentially valuable and to practice it more consciously as part of their own faith journey.

Publisher's Description

Theologian, mother, and writer Bonnie J. Miller-McLemore gives us some answers to this question and shows us how to integrate and strengthen the practice of faith in the everyday (and often mundane) experience of raising children. "In the Midst of Chaos" reveals what it takes to find the spiritual wisdom in the messy, familial ways of living. By rethinking parenting as an invitation to discover God in the middle of our busy and overstuffed lives, it relieves parents of the burden of being the all-knowing authority figures who impart spiritual knowledge to children. Finding spirituality in family activities such as reading bedtime stories, dividing household chores, and playing games can empower parents to notice what they are already doing as potentially valuable and to practice it more consciously as part of their own faith journey.
