About "Sacred Parenting"
Parenting is a school for spiritual formation-and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children will profoundly alter us forever.Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book you have ever read. This is not a "how-to" book that teaches you ways to discipline your kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us.You've read all the method books. Now take a step back and receive some much-needed inspiration. You'll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent-and how their children transformed their relationship with God. Sacred Parenting affirms the spiritual value of being a parent, showing you the holy potential of the parent-child relationship.

WOW! If there was a parenting book that I would recommend to every parent THIS IS THE ONE! It's not a how to book, there are no step by step instructions to get our children to behave BUT, this book speaks about something much more important, the role God has given children in shaping and changing the hearts of us as parents. We are so often focused on the other way around, training our children, which is very important. As we are challenged and blessed by our kids we are also being taught and transformed in our thinking and behaviour. This book is so Christ centred! Every aspect of parenting has got this one focus in mind and as a parent of a very difficult child it was so refreshing to read. I look forward to reading more of Gary's books and I will be recommending this one to everyone I know. I will definitely be reading this one again.
