Most Christian parents are bombarded with all kinds of advice and plans and programs for how to be a great parent. In parenting eight kids over the last twenty-five years, Julie Lyles Carr and her husband experienced plenty of opportunity for learning, but it was when they began to understand it was about parenting each child according to their own unique needs and personality style that something wonderful happened.
In Raising an Original, Carr helps to redefine the primary purpose of Christian parenting, this raising of the next generation. God has given each of our children specific gifts, abilities and capacities for specific purposes and He can equip parents to discover and support those powerful personality traits if they know where to look and how to respond. So many kids raised in Christian homes launch into their adult lives without any sense of knowing who they are called to be or what their mission on earth is. What if parents, teachers or mentors could help them discover the wondrous, unique threads woven within them that will enable them to see their part in the fabric of Gods universe?
Readers of Raising an Original will be equipped to help their children:
- Understand their unique strengths and the challenges associated with them
- Discover their God-given gifts and how to use them for His glory
- Succeed regardless of their circumstances
Raising an Original will provide readers with tools for better communication with their children as well as tools for uniquely guiding and disciplining each unique child. With a helpful and detailed Personality Trait Assessment Tool included as a major part of the book, readers will understand themselves, their parenting style, and their child better. They will also discover ways to improve their childrens communication within sibling groups and with parents themselves.
Readers will find freedom in discovering that God hasnt asked them to raise perfect children; Hes asked them to uniquely raise purposed children.
Julie Lyles Carr holds a degree in psychology which she uses every day in her parenting of eight children and also a degree in English Literature, which came in handy for writing a book on parenting. She is a popular speaker and blogger. She serves as the Pastor of Womens Ministry at her home church of LifeAustin in Austin, Texas. Julie is also the Founder and Executive Director of Legacy of Hope Austin, a non-profit group dedicated to serving families of children with special needs. Julie and her husband Michael have been married for almost twenty-six years.
In the age of political correctness there is supreme importance placed on normality. For parents, there is a very real temptation to produce cookie-cutter kids who dont stand out and do not stand up for truth. Raising an Original highlights a critical point, that your child is a unique image-bearer of the Almighty, and it is this originality that should be celebrated and nurtured. If you want to raise children that desire to glorify God by unabashedly reflecting his distinctiveness, buy this book.
Julies message of your unique calling to raise your one-of-a- kind child is one every parent needs to hear. Y ou will finish it feeling confident and purposeful and up for the task.
What I loved about Raising an Original is that is wasnt writ- ten by an ivory-tower member of academia, it was written by a mom. And not just any mom, a mom of eight. Wisdom flows effortlessly from every page from a woman that has walked in the steps of her Savior with her children and had the brilliance to stop and write down all that she has learned. In a time when we fear that our kids are going to end up looking like all their secular peers at school, Raising an Original is a God-breathed love letter to your family.
