"There is no more important responsibility in life than that of being a parent." (Rick Warren)
I just wrapped up reading "Love Powered Parenting." by Tom and Chaundel Holladay.
Tom serves at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest California where he trains church leaders from around the World.
In their book Tom and Chaundell lay out six principles of love modeled in the life of Jesus that we can pass on to our kids. Love Powered Parenting does not deal with the psychological truth nor does it deal with practical tips for every circumstance. This book deals more with God's principles for parenting.
Check them out:
Parenting Principle #1 Believe nothing is more important.
(The power of your priorities)
Parenting Principle #2 Love with new power.
(The power of your love)
Parenting Principle #3 Communicate from the heart
(The power of your words)
Parenting Principle #4 Show and teach mercy
(The power of your discipline and compassion)
Parenting Principle #5 Serve your children well
(The power of your serving)
Parenting Principle #6 Live the golden rule
(The power of your unselfishness)
Parenting is tough, but there is no greater responsibility in life.
This book will be worth the read. Check it out when you get a chance.
