Let’s Talk. I’m discovering more and more that these are the types of books I enjoy most. The book is written in such a way that I feel like we are having a conversation. He gives examples of home life that makes the content more personable. All throughout there are real life stories that feel like you are having a conversation with a trusted counselor. Easy read, and that’s a good thing.
Plan Ahead. What’s your plan for your kids? Do you a have a discipleship plan? What type of spiritual goals do you have for your kids? Yeah, exactly. If you answered “uh”, you might want to give this book a try. Great practical advice for future and intentional planning for your kids.
Ironic Title. It’s ironic a book called “Confident Parenting” could make me a little less confident. That is, in the sense that I have a long way to go. There is much to work on. But the confidence comes from the advice, the hope of a future, and practical ways to reach your goals.
Theology Light. With the exception of a couple of chapters, it was light on theology. It has a great Biblical foundation. And you know, I don’t think the intent was to dive into a theological discussion on parenting. Rather, it presented Biblical points and dove into practical ways to carry out God’s instructions. And the book accomplished this goal masterfully.
The Grade: B+. Don’t have time to read a parenting book, because you know, you’re a full-time parent just hanging on? This would be a great book to just read a few pages in between karate, the grocery store, and laundry. Looking for a less busy, grace-filled, positive, and encouraging home? Then you might want to give this book a try.
