danniAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5GreatAugust 7, 2018danniAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.

knowltonnest5 Stars Out Of 5Great book for parents to reevaluateApril 11, 2018knowltonnestQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Parents Rising is Arlene Pellicane's newest release. This book breaks down eight strategies for raising kids who love God, respect authority and value what's right. Arlene's honest and sometimes amusing family stories give a glimpse of how to apply these strategies to everyday life. Each chapter begins with a Bible verse and a short story. From there Arlene uses her research to share some startling statistics for the breakdown of the strategies in modern day culture. She weaves other author quotes and solid suggestions for implementing these ideas into the family. At the end of each chapter there is a question, a prayer and an action point. And interwoven in her writing she continually encourages parents to rise up. She also gives tips for single moms and blended families. There are also discussion questions at the end of the book for group meetings. Some of the topics covered are entertainment, boundaries, the role of the parent, daily Bible time and prayer, the priority of marriage, spending time with kids and getting them ready for life beyond the family home.
Arlene's latest book is another one to read and devour. She directly addresses the needs of today's family with love, encouragement and plenty of Biblical wisdom. Arlene is candid and witty with a generous dose of common sense and a purposeful edict for parents to subscribe to God's values for raising kids today. The best part is the Parents Rising Manifesto at the end of the book which challenges parents to read it weekly and includes all the strategies from the book to keep in mind through daily life. I plan to read through each chapter again and evaluate where I need to rise up and read the manifesto in my morning devotions. I love this book and I hope you will too.
