Product Description

Betty Cloyd reminds us of the truth of Deuteronomy 6 for today's society. From the beginning God has commanded us to be spiritual companions for our children and grandchildren. Mrs. Cloyd stresses this comandment for a society that often walls off itself from God and others with busyness. She invites parents and grandparents to intentionally guide their children and grandchildren to walk with talk with God...and to make a place in their hearts for the presence of God.

Publisher's Description

Children are born spiritual beings, full of joy, meaning, and possibility. Sadly, hope may be lost for some children by forces that challenge families and society -- stress, brokenness, a loss of community, spiritual poverty.

But there is hope. In her latest book, Christian educator Betty Cloyd reminds parents, "Before we give our children wings, we must give them roots". Cloyd urges parents to reclaim their primary role as spiritual guide for the sake of their children and society. In an affirming tone, the author shows how the whole family and the church are in a sacred partnership to provide the roots children need.

Readers will find examples of how they can introduce children to the presence of God during daily, routine activities as well as in planned devotional times. Questions for discussion and an interactive project and pledge are included to help incorporate Cloyd's ideas into the lives of parents and children.

Parents and Grandparents as Spiritual Guides includes biblical models of spiritual guides along with wonderful, insightful stories from children, medical professionals, Christian educators, and the author's own experience as a parent and grandparent. This is a must-have resource for grandparents, parents, and other child caregivers.
