While there are many helpful tips that can help you sustain the role of mom and dad, it is in Jesus' teaching about love that we find the foundation, encouragement, and lasting power that we all need as parents. Love Them Like Jesus focuses on how six of Jesus' greatest teachings can guide and encourage you on your journey through life with your children.

What is obvious from the beginning of Tom and Chaundel Holladay's book, Love-Powered Parenting, is how much they enjoy being parents. Not only have they received parenthood as a gift from God, they have embraced its high calling on their lives. They understand the challenges that go along with parenting and where solid answers for the task can be found.
The Holladays are quick to point out that while psychology and educational theory have much to contribute to the parenting equation, nothing can replace the "profound principles" of God's Word. As the Creator of parenting, God provides precepts for us to follow as we begin our journey, and it is from these precepts the Holladays lay down six user-friendly parenting principles: believe nothing is more important, love with new power, communicate from the heart, show and teach mercy, serve your children well, and love the Golden Rule. They also provide personal illustrations, solid biblical references, and a brief study guide at the end of each chapter to encourage quiet reflection.
The Holladays have served in ministry at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California for more than two decades. Tom has worked in pastoral leadership and teaching ministries, while Chaundel has taught and led women. She is also the sister of founding Pastor Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, but if asked, the Holladays would tell you that their crowning achievement and best preparation for writing their book is the twenty-five years they have spent parenting three children of their own. Love-Powered Parenting is an excellent resource for new parents, particularly those who may not have had effective parenting skills, such as meaningful conversation, compassion, and forgiveness, modeled for them when they were growing up. Whether entrusted with kids who are compliant or those who are a bit more challenging, the Holladays' book is a good reminder to hang in there. God will reward our efforts and provide us with the Love-Powered Parenting we need. - Ann Sullivan, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
