The Life Giving Parent: Giving Your Child a Life Worth Living for Christ by Clay & Sally Clarkson
From the family that brought you The Lifegiving Home and The Lifegiving Table, discover how you can become a parent who gives your child a life worth living for Christ.
In today's world, it's easy to become overwhelmed and even paralyzed by the constant flow of parenting advice. We're flooded with so much practical information that we wonder if we're choosing the right way. And we may be missing the one thing God really wants us to give to our children: His life. God doesn't include a divine methodology for parenting in the Bible, but He does provide principles that can enable any faithful parent to bring His life into the life of their home.
In The Lifegiving Parent, respected authors and parents Clay and Sally Clarkson explore eight key principles--heartbeats of lifegiving parenting--to shed light on what it means to create a home where your children will experience the living God in your family. Now parents of four grown children--each with their own unique personality and gifts--Sally and Clay have learned (sometimes the hard way!) that the key to shaping a heart begins at home as you foster a deep and thoughtful God-infused relationship with each child. Filled with biblical insight and classic Clarkson stories, The Lifegiving Parent will equip you with the tools and wisdom you need to give your children much more than just a good Christian life. You'll give them the life of Christ. (Don't miss the companion piece, The Lifegiving Parent Experience!)
Clay and Sally have written an amazing book with The Life Giving Parent. Honestly, I think I can give a lot of my other parenting books away because this book gets to the heart of children, which is teaching them to love Jesus in a world that is messy, chaotic and unsettling. There isn't a formula or method, but this is a lifestyle and I love how they approach their parenting, just like they approach their dinner table. Which is you haven't read any other books by Sally, I highly recommend them! This book is all about passing on a legacy of Christ to children and it doesn't matter what age, you can pass this on to your children. I love how relational Clay and Sally are as people and I think it makes all the different in their approach to parenting. I love this book, just like I loved the Life Giving Table. I highly recommend this book. I give this book 5/ 5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
