From the Back Cover
Do you long to raise godly children but sometimes wonder where to start? Parenting with Purpose provides clear biblical direction to help you focus your child-rearing patterns on a precise target: preparing your children for life. This book's unique approach to training children uses the biblical qualifications for elders and deacons as the foundation for character development. Why not begin with the Bible's goal for mature adults in mind? Within these twelve character qualities, you will find practical solutions for everyday situations with children, such as chores, sibling rivalry, whining, lying, and more. Plus, each chapter includes reflective questions to help you apply the principles studied. But character training involves more than just influencing the outward behavior for the moment-it means transforming the heart so that it desires what is right for a lifetime. This book shows you how, so that you will one day be able to say, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." "Every once in a while a book comes along that we cannot afford to ignore. This is such a book."-Phil Callaway, author of Growing Up on the Edge of the World and I Used to Have Answers, Now I Have Kids
