Publisher's Description

Let William Wilberforce Help You Prioritize Your Parenting William Wilberforce, the 19th century statesman, is famous for spearheading the drive to end slavery in England. But he was also the devoted father of six children. And because his duties often forced him to be away, he wrote numerous letters to his children. In these letters, Wilberforce spoke about such practical matters as finances, friends, education, careers, the uncertainty of life, and their relationship with God. The principles he taught ring as true today as they did then. By "looking in" on this correspondence, we can see the kinds of values to instill in our own kids. And we can find encouragement to become as proactive in parenting as Wilberforce remained throughout his life. Author Stephanie Byrd adds commentary providing historical context and modern application. With this help, Wilberforce can become your mentor with wisdom that's both practical and timeless. Stephanie Byrd discovered Wilberforce's letters to his children while researching her master's thesis about him. She earned her master's in church-state studies at Baylor University and a law degree from St. Mary's University School of Law. She lives with her husband, Brian, and three children in Fort Worth, Texas. Stephanie is a volunteer coordinator for Prison Fellowship's Angel Tree program, which ministers to children with incarcerated parents. All her proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to Angel Tree.
