A Homeschool Mom5 Stars Out Of 5We recommend this be read by all Christian parents!May 21, 2018A Homeschool MomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5From where I sit, Them Them Diligently has just been added as one of my top ten gifts for all the parents we know. I think this lays a beautiful foundation for parents new to the faith and those having their first babies. For the rest of us who've been doing this for a bit, it is a fantastic reminder that our job is not yet done.
KarenSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Read, Practical guidance and encouragementApril 22, 2018KarenSan Antonio, TXAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I loved reading this book. This is the kind of book that you can keep coming back to when you need encouragement or guidence. There are lots of parenting books out there but this is my favorite as it is always pointing you to what Scripture says about any particular subject. God has given us guidance as to how he wants us to parent our children. And this book is a great guide to God's word on parenting. I especially found the little prayer suggestions at the end of each chapter very useful. When I finished this book, I felt equipped and encouraged to guide my children in their walk of faith and in mine as well.
Pastor David GreenMansfield OHAge: 25-34Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Biblical AdviceApril 19, 2018Pastor David GreenMansfield OHAge: 25-34Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A couple of years back I learned about the Teach Then Diligently homeschool conferences that are held at various locations in the USA, and I met Leslie Nunnery at one of them. When I found out that she had written a book on with the same title, I knew I had to get it.
Sure enough, this book, published by Master Books, does not disappoint. The first thing that impressed me is that most of the Scripture in her book is from the King James Version of the Bible. The second thing that impressed me, and it goes right along with that, is the fact that she uses a lot of Scripture in the book. This is important to every parent. God's Word is sufficient for us to know how to raise our children correctly.
Mrs. Nunnery does a fine job using examples from Scriptures, particularly the Old Testament passages which command us to teach and to train, as well as those examples we find from those saints who have gone on before us. The author not only does a great job of expounding on these passages but also defining key words.
She also uses examples from her own experience, which I thought was a great touch and very helpful since she and her husband are parents of four children ranging in ages from 11-18.
The chapters are short and to the point, which makes the book easy to read for any parent but the content is deep and the material is full of Biblical advice. I give this book five out of five stars and recommend it highly!
momof34 Stars Out Of 5Great Read!March 15, 2018momof3Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I would highly recommend this book to parents. It is concise and to the point which makes it a feasible read for busy parents. The biblical emphasis is key throughout the book. That is what we as parents need as our primary focus and foundation. I appreciate Lesli sharing her heart and how the Lord has used his word in her life and parenting journey.
Theresa C ShellAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging, but I expected moreMarch 14, 2018Theresa C ShellAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2Written in concise, encouraging chapters for the busy parent, Leslie Nunnery uses the illustration of Moses' exhortation to Israel in Deuteronomy 6:1-8 to encourage parents in discipling their children in the ways of God. This passage expresses the transference of faith within everyday events, as parents continuously model and speak about the glory of God within the household, through symbols, actions, holiday observance, and intentional discipleship.
This resource begins slowly--first only hinting at the significance of the passage--then eventually bringing out some practical ways of discipleship (e.g. being vulnerable with your children, making space for two-way conversation, sharing your own stories of God's goodness, and so forth). Many parents will be motivated and refreshed by the call to raise up their children, andencouraged by the practical examples.
However, Nunnery barely touches the surface of this significant passage, which is at the heart of both Judaism and the New Testament. Moses is reminding Israel of God's heart and law, as was received on Mt. Sinai (celebrated as Shavuot--the receiving of Torah). The beginning of Acts opens to a parallel passage as the followers of Jesus gather in Jerusalem for Shavuot (known to Christians as Pentecost), to receive the Holy Spirit. It is the marriage of the Word and Spirit together that allows us to be fully activated in faith, in personal relationship with God, in the ability to love fully, to bear each other's burdens, to forgive, and to walk worthy of our callings in Christ. I think this resource would be even stronger if parents were encouraged in the Scriptural foundation of the Holy Spirit, which is a needed aspect of drawing together as a family (in fact, unity within the Body was one of the primary signs of the nascent church!). If we want to fully disciple our children, both teaching the Word and living in the Spirit are vital, and there are so many stories and practical applications on both sides of this picture that could be expounded upon!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Master Books.
