Tell us a little about yourself. As a father of five children, I love family life. Although our kids are grown now, we're enjoying the fun of grandparenting. We founded the National Center for Biblical Parenting to provide family-strengthening resources for churches and parents. You may visit our web site at www.biblicalparenting.org
What was your motivation behind this project? I'm very grateful for my parents who taught me what honor was in their relationship with each other and with us as kids. When my wife and I got married we wanted to have honor in our home and our five kids provided many opportunities to test out the ideas.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? The concept of honor has helped me see the difference between families that are mediocre and those that are successful. We wrote this book after doing a four-year study on honor in the Bible and in life and were excited to write it all down. We've applied honor to sibling conflict, teenagers, parental discipline, and just teaching kids how to be successful in life. We believe that God has hidden success principles within honor. That's why he commanded that honor be learned in family life.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I'm very grateful for my parents who taught me what honor was in their relationship with each other and with us as kids.

Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We have four goals when approaching parenting problems.

We're always on the lookout for more parenting secrets. We'd love to hear from you.
