Overview In Parenting: From Surviving to Thriving, beloved pastor and teacher Dr. Charles Swindoll explores God's divine plan for successful families. Do you see parenting as an opportunity to grow closer to your heavenly father or as one more trip to the grocery store, one more soccer practice, one more troubled teen? Whatever parents know of parenting, they know this: it can be difficult. But what happens when you put God in the middle of a choatic house? Dr. Swindoll is convinced that God made you a parent for a reason. In fact, it's part of His divine plan for you. Knowing that many are treading the parental waters, Parenting: From Surviving to Thriving offers Dr. Swindoll's trademark biblical advice to get you from dread to joy, from exasperation to empowerment.
Everything that parents need to survive and thrive in the 21st Century. Marriage, children and family have been lifelong priorities for Charles Swindoll. Based on his extensive study of both the Old and New Testaments, Chuck has drawn together those timeless insights for building close and rewarding family relationships. Following a biblical exploration of God's purpose and plans for families, readers are equipped with all the tools necessary to grow strong healthy families. Chuck then takes a clear-eyed look at those areas where parents and families often experience difficulties. In typical Swindoll fashion, these discussions are frank and direct but always leave the reader filled with hope and encouragement.

Reviews - What do customers think about Parenting: From Surviving to Thriving: Building Healthy Families in a Changing World?
One of the greatest parenting book I've read! Jun 30, 2007
This is by far, the best biblically based parenting book I've read. And I've read quite a number of them.
This book leaves me feeling encouraged and inspired to be a better parent to my children. I think Chuck did a great job pointing out the fact that to be a good or better parent, one has to, first of all, have a vibrant relationship with the Lord and have the right heart in front of Him. It also gives me principles, rather than one specific parenting method, that I find to be more applicable regardless of the children's ages.
Overall, a truly great and satisfying book. I've read it twice already and will definitely refer to it over and over again, I'm sure, over the years.
