Inspiring book! Jul 30, 2006
Being a parent in this day and age can be difficult when your values don't mirror those of society. There are times when it would just be much easier to "give in" -- after all, if so many people think the trappings of society are right, why beat your head against the wall? Parents are under a lot of pressure, sometimes even from their own spouses, to let little things slide, but those little things add up to big ones in a hurry! Cheryl's book offers the inspiration we parents need to "stick to our guns" and keep on reinforcing the values that we know are important in the long run, in our children's lives. Her references to scripture add even more "authority" and proof that raising Christian children is a right and good aspiration! I recommend it highly!
Helpful, inspirational and practical. Jul 25, 2006
Cheryl Dickow's book provides many insightful and supportive tips to parents who feel challenged by the conflicting values of our secular world. Many bible passages are included to provide inspiration and biblically based principles to encourage and uplift those of us involved in the task of parenting. This book can be read and reflected upon many times. It is a JEWEL!
