If you were not blessed by your own parents, look to the Father for yours. Learn to be a parent who blesses your children...
This is one of his best selling books.
From the cover: No matter what our age, our parents' approval affects the way we view ourselves-and how we act with those we love most. Now we can all learn to find-and give-the unconditional acceptance the Bible calls...The Blessing
We all have a powerful need to be loved and accepted unconditionally by someone in this world, especially by our parents. A helpful book on how we can pass blessings on to our children.
This is a good book on parent-child relationships and is useful for other relationships too.
I read this for a college course and liked it alot.
30 years ago this book changed my vision for how to raise my sons and how to reach out to everyone I came in contact with. I plan on reading it again!
This book was recommended to me. I liked the concept, but it was not very concrete in ways to get or give the blessing. It was also too religious to me, and attributed things such as homosexuality to not getting enough love from your parents, which is ridiculous.
This book built a case (Biblically) for shoeing honor to one's parents and then helps work through the process of being a blessing (or writing one) to one's parents-living, dead, estranged, etc. Fabulous book. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Using the book in a class with staff
This is still needed today. Universal need of the human condition. Timeless!
