During each of the 40 day journey, parents are given a key verse from Scripture, a biblical principle about love that applies to parenting, and a specific challenge for the parent to do that is done for the sake of their child.

SoaringEagleUSAGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging/challengingAugust 19, 2014SoaringEagleUSAGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5You have probably heard about the book The Love Dare. It is a 40-day journey for you and/or your spouse to do little things(or big) for the other. Well, we now have one for parents. It's called The Love Dare for Parents by Stephen & Alex Kendrick.
I wanted to review this book and also do the daily challenge for my own children. I needed a fresh look at how precious they truly are. Sometimes I find myself in a rut where it seems we argue too often, especially with my pre-teen. I want to stop that cycle...it's not a fun way to relate to each other.
First you would start with the online assessment. I wasn't surprised with the results, it actually confirmed what I was thinking about the areas that I need help in. The results also tell you which days will be helpful in working on those problem areas.
Day one was easy for me. The challenge was to tell your children that you love them. Saying "I love you" is easy for me. But maybe it isn't for you. Do it anyway. The day starts out with a Bible verse. Then a short message about love and parenting. That day's challenge is next, followed by a journal area to write down what the result was. So far my children have not said anything special about what I have been doing, but they may still be noticing. Keep doing them even if your children are not really responding.
Day 2 was about patience. I need help with that. That challenge was to write Love is Patient and stick it somewhere. I put mine on the fridge. I still forget but then I remember...it's a hard journey but so worth it.
At the end of the book, in the appendix are eight articles such as how to pray for your children, how to find peace with God, etc...
I'm glad that this book is available to all parents, no matter how old your children are. Get yours today.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in return for my honest review.
Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Must Read for ParentsAugust 15, 2014Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Love Dare for Parents is a 40 day challenge to develop Christ-like love and influence your children. Parenting is not a piece of cake. It takes time, effort, prayer and lots of hard work. This book teaches you about leading your heart not just giving into feelings and emotions.
Each day consists of an opening Scripture, a devotional to read, and ends with a dare to accomplish. At the end of each day, there are questions to ponder and a place to journal your thoughts.
I have not yet completed the whole book, but am working through it. Sometimes, I take several days to accomplish a dare, especially if life is busy or hectic that day. But, I can say, this book is definitely helping me become a better parent, be more aware, attentive, and have an open mind towards my children. It is teaching me better ways to love, lead and listen.
I would highly recommend this book to any parent whose desire is to love their children in a more intentional Christ-like manner.
I was blessed with this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I am not required to give a positive review.
