    As Christian parents we strive to show Christ to our children. The author has taken scripture, the life of Christ, and his experience to write how parents can raise their children with with the delicate balance of truth and love. Each chapter ends with discussion questions.

    I'll admit that based on the cover, I was expecting something dry. But I was pleasantly surprised. The author blended his thoughts with stories and antidotes that helped bring the points home. The message is easy to understand and put into practice. The questions at the end would make this a great book for group discussion, but would definitely be good for parents to use themselves.

    I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    A great resource for parents at all stages

    I highly recommend Dan Seaborns book, Parenting with Grace and Truth. I wasn't sure initially if I was going to like the book. It started out somewhat dry and textbook-like. However, it ended up being quite readable and easy to relate to. The author effectively uses personal stories effectively to help relate his points.

    Dan Seaborn starts out by laying the foundation for intentional parenting, determining what character traits are most important to you in teaching your children and identifying your normal. He writes, If you havent established or arent sticking with a normal with regard to your values in general and your parenting in particular, you will continuously give in to the whims and desires of your children. They will keep challenging your decisions, asking you for stuff, or ignoring your requirements, and you will continue to give in to them based on what everybody else seems to perceive as normal.

    In this book, the author discusses the balance of extending grace with teaching and modeling truth. The topics addressed include parenting through a crisis, parenting in blended families, effective parenting styles, the roles of mom and dad,, and helping children discover their own unique gifts and abilities.He stresses the importance of allowing children to experience natural consequences without always stepping in to rescue them.

    This book would be a great gift to new parents, but I think it is helpful to read at any stage of parenting.

    Practical Guidance Grounded in Scripture

    There are a tremendous amount of books on parenting, and many claim to be different and unique, with new approaches and techniques that will "finally overcome" this or that problem in the world of the parent/child relationship. While Dan Seaborn's book, Parenting with Grace and Truth does not make any of these claims, it may very well be the different and "unique" approach parents need in our current culture. This parenting book explores the challenges and problems of parenting and simply holds them up to the example of Jesus Christ - the most graceful, truthful, and loving example we will ever find for teaching, leading, correcting, and developing one another, including our children.

    Seaborn incorporates Scripture throughout his book as the blueprint for developing his suggestions and guidelines for handling tough issues. He also incorporates a few interesting and helpful quotes from notable people including Benjamin Spock, Martin Luther King Jr., and Abigail Van Buren, to name a few. Also helpful are Dan's "Questions to Consider" where he brings each chapter's lesson right down to the reader's current experiences, challenging the reader to apply what was discussed in the chapter to their own personal situations. What I enjoyed the most, and frankly made me more vested in the author's guidance, was the "Dan's Reality Check" sections. These "Reality Checks" acknowledge that every situation is unique, and that the advice given in the chapter may not apply perfectly to each situation, and also provides additional suggestions for adapting in these outlying areas.

    It's no wonder that the book has such a realistic tone to it - the author is the Director of the Marriage and Family Network for the American Association of Christian Counselors. Plus, he and his wife have four children, so he speaks from experience! Physically, the book itself is nothing glamorous, just simple guidance that is grounded in the Bible, specifically, the actions and words of Jesus Christ. I recommend this book to all parents, in all stages and circumstances of parenting.

    This is an interesting book for parents of any age child to help lead and guide in their growing years. Parenting is one of the hardest job a person will encounter simply because your actions as well as others can and will have a tremendous influence over a child. It would be so much easier if babies came with manuals, but also they don't.

    I found this to be a helpful book and wish it had been out years ago.

    This book is divided into 8 short chapters and at the end of each chapter you will find a list of questions to consider. Some may consider these hard or deep questions, but they help you to reflect on what you have just read. It may be easy to use a journal and write out your answers if that helps keeping you on tract. Then he give you practical ideas to implement in your life which honestly are not difficult.

    In the first chapter he discusses how to develop good character in your children and how reminds us that children develop character by emulating others behavior and by responding to how we encourage their behavior. He also reminds us that character is not just about behavior, but also how they respond in situations. I felt this was an important chapter and reread it, studied it and made notes about ways to implement his advise. The next chapter I found the same, in fact each chapter I read I found something very important about and went back and studied it more closely. My journal was full by the end of this book.

    In the very back of the book is a scripture index and also a place for notes.

    I found this a helpful book and would recommend it to anyone.

    Parenting with Grace and Truth was an insightful and quick read about how to parent as Jesus would. The chapter on parenting through a crisis was most impactful to me. I appreciate that the author shared honest examples of his own challenges in parenting and the heartbreaking days separated from his daughter. This book challenged me to live in the moments of who my children are today and love them as they grow and change.
