Publishers Description
Divine Parenting Made Possible
Every parent wants to do his or her job well. But if you look to your family of origin, or try to follow a list of dos and don'ts, you will fail. Thankfully, God sets a model as Parent, and all you have to do is follow it In "Parenting the Way God Parents, "Katherine Koonce shows how healthy parenting patterns will flow naturally when you parent from your godly heritage. By way of thought-provoking study, discussion questions, and scriptural snapshots, you'll begin addressing not just your children's behavior, but the important heart issues that shape their character. When you adopt God the Father's perfect understanding of His children and prayerfully obey His example, your children can't help but become healthy, whole, and thriving
The Perfect Parenting Plan
Kids will be kids, and parents will become...just like their own parents. Even with the best intentions, parents will default to raising their kids just as they were raised--unless they embrace a revolutionary approach to parenting.
Thank God, because He provides the better way. He has everything you need for parenting your children in the grace, discipline, and love with which He parents you. Child development and learning specialist Katherine Koonce comes alongside to offer you a fresh perspective that will redirect your parenting path. "Parenting the Way God Parents" will help you:
Discern valid rights from selfish wants in this age of entitlement
Be prepared for anger, and help your children prepare for it too
T ake an active, prayerful role in seeking God's vision for your family
Focus on shaping your children's "hearts, " not just their "behavior"
Set aside parenting how-to books full of dos and don'ts and embrace the One who parents you perfectly.
"Knowing Katherine as a gifted teacher at the school my children attend,
it's evident that she has a great deal of wisdom and insight."
Steven Curtis Chapman
""Parenting the Way God Parents" is refreshingly free of formulas,
and packed full of wisdom and valuable insight.
I will reread it for myself and recommend it again and again in my practice."
David Thomas
Child and Adolescent Therapist
Coauthor of "Becoming a Dad: A Spiritual, Emotional and Practical Guide "
Story Behind the Book
"Like most parents, I was not prepared for the job. Again and again I found myself defaulting to the parenting tactics and family dynamics recycled from my childhood. God convinced me that there was a better way. Rather than parent the way I was as a child, I can choose to parent the way I am Parented today. God my Father parents me with excellence, and I want to continue that legacy with my children. In choosing this paradigm of childrearing, however, I've had to lay down my little bag of parenting tricks and embrace the One who parents me perfectly."
--Katherine Koonce

very helpful  Feb 12, 2008
I really enjoyed reading this book. It really gave me some great ideas to help my kids. I would recommend this book to any parent...especially Christians.
A Great Resource  Apr 20, 2006
This book is rich and thought-provoking. Buy two copies - one for yourself and give the other to a good friend. It really stirred and challenged me to think differently about the art of parenting. There are great questions throughout the book that have invited rich discussion with my husband about our own kids and with friends about the journey of parenting. I highly recommend this book!
Deliverance from outcome-based parenting!   Mar 12, 2006
Yes! I am the mom of four children from 4 to 14,so I've read lots of parenting "prescriptives" and have been frustated at the overly-simplistic formulas for success, the rigid unrealistic plans that promise harmony and perfection, and the scare-tactic, "flee the world and head for the bunker" approaches. Parenting isn't easy; neither is childhood. This book reminds us that life isn't a mastered performance but a hand-in-hand walk - our children, our Father and us on a journey to maturity that never really ends in this life. Katherine Koonce honors her Lord and her readers by respecting the difficulty of this journey in her life and offering gentle insights on obedience to God's principles for the whole family.It reminded me that my role is to obey God in my parenting and to trust Him with the outcomes, not to produce perfect children.
