Parenting On Purpose

Becoming a parent isn’t hard, but parenting with purpose and dignity is.  Here are four places you will find great wisdom (and hope!) for the great task to which you’ve been called.

These first two are books written by two brothers.

Shepherding a Child’s Heart: Reading this book will not only change the way you will look at what is going on in your child’s heart, you’ll see what is going on in yours.

Parenting, 14 Gospel Principles that will Radically Change Your Family: This author will give you reason to not give up on the hard things, reminding you that your job is bigger, and more wondrous than you’ve imagined.

Next are two sites full of practical advice on how to walk in grace as you parent.

The Gospel Coalition works to equip Christians in how to live out their faith in the details.  Godly men and women will help you think well about discipline, media, and even the day-to-day things like chores.

Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF) helps you  love your child through hard circumstances and give them tools to navigate through the maturing work of growing up.
