Publisher's Description

It's hard enough to train kids to behave, but good behavior isn't what Jesus calls for in the Bible. He wants hearts and souls that are shaped in vibrant faith and love toward God and others. How can parents cultivate this in their children? In this book Dr. Michelle Anthony shares practical examples and biblical insight on the spiritual role of parenting.

Spiritual Parenting introduces the simple but revolutionary concept that parents are, by the power of God's Spirit, to obey and depend on God in order to create an environment God can use to beckon their children to Him.

Publisher's Weekly

Parenting books can be preachy¬óreaders often feel like the children of the erstwhile parent turned author. This one is different. The Ph.D. mother-author's conversational style is more narrative than didactic as she describes her "Aha!" moments, when she moved from attempting to control her children's behavior to putting them into environments where they can know God and be changed by him. This is not a how-to parenting manual but a guide for developing as a spiritually minded parent who asks, "Who did God create my child to be?" The author's mix of competence and vulnerability will be attractive to many readers: "It frustrated me that some punk kid down the street had more credibility than I did." Her writing is vivid, terse, and revealing¬óa story of a boy who grew up without a father to become a great father himself is the heart of a chapter on love and respect. The book speaks to the journey that all parents must learn to accept: to hear God's voice and change along with their children. (June)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
