The book is separated into four parts:
1) Understanding the Heart
2) Connecting with your child's heart
3) Working out Heart Change
4) Touching your child's heart
Each part begins with a Heart story from the Bible and then gives examples of real life instances on how a problem can be addressed, both without reaching the heart and reaching the heart. Understanding that the parents need to look at their own hearts first before trying to address change in their child's heart is a major focus of the book. I'll leave it up to you to read the book to find out the three ways to touch your child's heart - I promise they are game changers in how you will approach parenting and correcting your children.
Jamie4 Stars Out Of 5April 8, 2009JamieThis book is a great starting point for parents wanting to biblically train up their children. It goes beyond behavior modification to looking into what is actually in the heart. I feel that there could have been more scriptures for giving the child reproof and encouragement. I sometimes feel a little lost when I'm trying to explain to my children why their heart is not in the right spot. Overall the book pointed me in the right direction and I would recommend it to others.

Tell us a little about yourself. Joanne Miller, RN, BSN and I teach parenting seminars all over the country. It's likely that we'll be in your area this year. You might want to check out our schedule online.
What was your motivation behind this project? Behavior modification says things ike, "You can watch a video if you clean your room." This "I'll give you what you want if you do what I say" approach breeds selfishness in kids. There's a whole different way to parent. We're committed to showing you how.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We started with a biblical study of the word "heart" in scripture. From the 750 verses that use the word "heart" we identified 9 functions of the heart and then applied that to parenting. Our goal is to help parents move from a simple behavior modification approach to a heart based approach. Awana purchased 5000 copies of the book for their new parent training program. Over 50 ministry leaders have endorsed this book. you can read them all at our web site biblicalparenting.org.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We also offer free email parenting tips. We'd love to get you signed up to receive these heart based tips a couple of times a week. Blessings to your family. -Scott Turansky
