Item description for Parenting with Purpose: 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids for Life by Margaret Buchanan...

Overview
Every Christian parent longs to raise godly children, but for many moms and dads that goal is just too vague. Parenting with Purpose gives families the clear biblical direction they need. Its unique approach to character training helps parents focus their child-rearing efforts on a precise target: preparing children for life. Buchanan uses the biblical qualifications for elders and deacons as the foundation for character development. These twelve traits provide parents with pratical solutions for everyday situations such as chores, sibling rivalry, whining, lying, and more. Plus, each chapter includes a section of reflective questions to further assist families in applying the principles studied. But character training involves more than just influencing the outward bahavior for the moment - it means transforming the heart so that it desires what is right for a lifetime. This book shows parents how.

Reviews - What do customers think about Parenting with Purpose: 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids for Life?

Parenting With Purpose: 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids .  Mar 6, 2004
This book is current, solid, easily read, and could be very helpful. It is an important one for people to read.

Not required reading for perfect parents! But, if you're like the rest of us, you'll be very glad you investigated it and kept it as a reference. The title and cover picture appear determined and sombre. Surely not another joyless, rule-laden, guilt-inducing diatribe for parents and caregivers! Indeed, not! (Should have known the author of "Jerks in the Bible" wouldn't do that to us.)

Using archery as her metaphor, Margaret Buchanan speaks clearly, realistically, with compassion and perceptiveness, of nurturing our children in the faith. Her rueful humour and honesty tell us, "She's been there!"

Biblically-based and worldly-wise, her intelligent, well- supported, meaty teachings are laid out in bite-size pieces, enhanced by topical and, sometimes surprising, current information summaries. This is an "interactive" book, inducing on-going personal reflection. Twelve chapter-end sets of questions invite discussion.

Apart from one "date" suggestion concerning the part to be played by the parent of the opposite sex in the process of encouraging chastity, I believe "Parenting with Purpose" is a wholesome, readable, "do-able" plan of action for hitting the mark.
Parents, grandparents, caregivers and congregational leaders, whether parents or not, ordained or lay, can benefit from reading or studying this book. The Church's children, from infant to senior citizen, and God's wider world, will also benefit, as a result.

 
Outstanding Book to Prepare Kids Well for Life!  Mar 3, 2004
Every loving, committed Christian parent faces the same challenge virtually from the moment that newborn babe is first placed in their arms. They wonder how to raise this child, teaching him or her all they'll need to learn to become a godly and productive man or woman. Each day of development brings only more questions, more challenges that parents had better be prepared for. Parenting with Purpose, 12 Biblical Traits to Prepare Kids for Life, by Margaret Buchanan is a book that will help equip parents for this enormous task.

Peppered with personal and practical illustrations, the author offers real ideas for parents. Each chapter contains a section called "Ready, Aim" that takes the Scripture lesson of the focus verse and makes it relevant to everyday life. The Bible stories used are condensed into accurate recaps with the lessons and applications clearly pointed out.

The book focuses on the Scriptural qualifications for elders and deacons, suggesting parents use those as a guideline. The idea is to build these lessons into everyday life, teaching them to the children from the beginning thus laying a great foundation for raising godly children.

The end of each chapter contains a refreshing collection of questions to inspire discussion. Beyond the typical list of shallow queries often found in similar books, these are actually well thought out conversation starters.

Raising children in this world is a huge responsibility. Raising godly children in this ungodly age is beyond challenging. Parenting with Purpose provides practical teaching and application to assist in this challenge. In this fast food, drive-through age of instant gratification, so many people are looking for a quick fix. If that's what you're looking for, keep looking. This book will not offer a quick fix solution. But, instead it will provide real direction based on God's Word. Combining these principles with a life committed to Jesus will give our little ones a firm foundation on which to build a godly life.

Excellent bible-based parenting book  Jan 7, 2004
This is a well-written book and makes scriptures applicable to our present day situations as parents. It doesn't hold back in stating that following the teachings we receive in the Bible are perfect as a guide for how to raise our children, guiding and directing them. We don't have to look any further than God's word. The chapters are organized so when you want to refer back to a certain area, it's easy to find and re-read. Scripture verses/locations are given so if you want to refer to your Bible, you can. The best message of this book is that the parents need to model behaviors for their children for their children to develop good character and morals.
