    Arlene Pellicane is a fantastic author and her latest book, Parents Rising will not disappoint! She presents crucial information in a concise and convincing way that encourages readers to take action. Similar to her other books, Parents Rising is relatively short and easy-to-read. Pellicane includes a plethora of research data, but intertwines the data with personal experiences, excerpts of advice from other authors, and examples from Scripture. She uses all of this to build rationale behind her practical tips.

    In Parents Rising, Pellicane does not mince words regarding the challenges parents face when raising children. In that way, Parents Rising is not for the faint of heart. Still, since Pellicane writes in an encouraging way, parents will be motivated to make changes in their home that will have an eternal impact on their children and perhaps change the communities they live in.

    I highly recommend Parents Rising to parents with children of any age, grandparents who seek to support their children and grandchildren, and anyone who works with children or families.

    I had the opportunity to read Parents Rising by Arlene Pellicane and I loved the book! Parents Rising takes a look at practical advice for parents of children ages newborn to about age 13. And I love practical advice!!!

    In Parents Rising, Arlene gives "eight practical strategies for raising kids who love God, respect authority and value what's right". I really enjoyed the way Arlene expanded on the eight strategies. They are:

    Amusement is not the highest priority

    Parents call the shots

    Routine and Boundaries provide security

    The Bible and Prayer everyday

    Marriage takes a front seat

    Good food served on the table

    Love is spelled T-I-M-E

    Launching adults, not babying children

    Arlene gathers advice from MANY sources and combines it all in one book! I loved how she used many well know sources to expand on each topic.

    I think one of the things I liked most about this book is that Arlene has a one stop shop for parenting and marriage advice in this book.

    It is written for the parents of today and very revenant. Best of all it's not just parenting advice but marriage advice that will in turn affect your parenting!

    This was the first book I read by Arlene (I did hear her speak once ~ or rather not. Check out her story and maybe you see why she didn't speak! )

    I was given a free copy of Parents Rising by Arlene Pellicane for my honest review which I was happy to do!

    I just finished reading 8 Simple Tools For Raising Great Kids by Dr. Todd Cartmell so I will instinctively do a bit of comparison between his book and Arlene Pellicanes.

    They are very similar in many ways but their distinction becomes clear in their writing styles and Pellicanes clear Scriptural foundations.

    Pellicane offers 8 strategies to assist parents in rising to their God given role of authority in parenting children to become disciples of Truth.

    The 8 strategies are as follows:

    - Removing Amusement As the Number One Priority

    - Parents Calling the Shots

    - Establishing Routine and Boundaries to Provide Security

    - Utilizing and Applying the Bible along with Intentional Prayer Every Day

    - Placing Marriage in the Front Seat so the Kids can Ride in the Back

    - Providing Opportunities for Healthy Family Mealtime

    - Loving Your Children Through the Importance of Time and Purpose

    - Launching Adults rather than Babying Children

    The one aspect I loved more than Dr. Cartmells book is that Arlene incorporates Scripture in every chapter of the book. There is a Biblical worldview that is portrayed through the book. Each chapter begins with a scripture and a short story. She is not shy about providing practical suggestions to help implement the strategies. Each chapter concludes with a thoughtful question, a prayer, and a Parent Rising action step.

    The book itself begins with a quiz consisting of 8 yes or no questions. This allows the reader to determine the health of their home.

    I love that she included an entire chapter on the Marriage Relationship. It is very evident Biblically that this relationship comes before that of the parent-child relationship and Im glad she reaffirmed this in her book.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Arlene Pellicane did again! Another hit out of the park. In a mix of personal stories and shared insights from other voices of complete knowledge and understanding, the author gives parents a roadmap. This isnt just advice put everyday practical steps parents can take to rise to the roles they were made for. This book will definitely not on my shelf but rather will remain a nearby, handy reference for me to come back to again and again!

    I truly wish I had this book when my children were younger. Arlene lays out 8 strategies for raising kids who love God, respect authority, and value whats right. As she walks you through these 8 strategies, Arlene comes along side of you and lets you know you arent alone in struggling against all the destructive forces that are arrayed against our children and raising them to become godly men and women. Practical steps are laid out to help you as you parent your children, in this struggle. To raise godly children in a society that frequently dismisses following and serving God is a monumental task that takes perseverance and fortitude, Parents Rising is a welcome tool that can help Parents rise to what God has called them to do!
