One day when I was feeling overwhelmed by the conflicting advice of various parenting books, our pastor and his wife recommended that I read Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas. I am so thankful for the recommendation.
This book stretched me. It also pushed, prodded and provoked me. There were times that I had to get up and walk away from it, aching with conviction, only to return moments later to reread the part that had touched me so profoundly.
This book helped me to see that my parenting does not just shape my child, but it shapes me- possibly even more so than my child.
If you are a parent, grandparent, or are considering becoming a parent, I urge you to read this book and to share it with others.
You can buy it here.
“You want to hear a severe truth? None of us can be such good parents that God becomes obligated to save our children’s souls. On the more encouraging end, none of us can mess up so badly that our children somehow extend beyond the reach of God’s mercy.”
Gary Thomas, Sacred Parenting
