Item description for Sacred Parenting: How Raising Children Shapes Our Souls by Gary L. Thomas...

Readers are invited to explore the spiritual dynamics of parenting, and why caring for children is such an effective discipline in shaping the soul and forming the character of Christ within.

Publishers Description
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."

Reviews - What do customers think about Sacred Parenting?

Terrific, perspective-changing book  May 13, 2007
As a Christian mother of toddler triplets, I have read lots of books on parenting...but never one that has effected my persective as positively as this one. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to positively impact the attitude of their heart for parenting. This is not a How is much richer!
Heart warming and honest  Feb 11, 2007
I read this while pregnant w/our first baby and it was not only great reading at the time, but the lessons from it have sustained me through the trials of parenting a newborn. Much better than any of the "how to" books I've read on raising kids!!!
Multi-Generational Understanding  Apr 5, 2006
I read this book 3 short months after my first child was born. I am so glad that I came across this Biblically sound view of the responsibilities and treasures of parenting at that early date. I also was greatful for the perspective that this book offered on my relationship with my own parents. Every child who longs to honor his parents and raise a child who does the same will take joy in reading this book.
Essential Reading for Every Christian Parent  Jul 7, 2005
For years my wife and I had debated whether or not we should have a child. My wife just didn't have that strong emotional drive some women have to procreate. My desire to have a child would come and go. Finally, when my desire to have a child came again, we prayerfully decided to go for it. The pregnancy was filled with painful and expensive complications, which was followed by severe postpartum depression. I felt terrible guilt for asking my wife to do this. My daughter is a year old now. She's perfect. God couldn't have made a more beautiful child. But parenting is a lot tougher than I'd imagined and I was fighting the notion that I'd made a mistake. After the first frustrating, sleep deprived year, I felt that I was clearly not cut out to be a parent. However, Sacred Parenting changed my mind. It showed me there every single parenting experience, whether good or bad, was a gift from God that would shape my soul for eternity. He also pointed out all the simple pleasures that awaited me in the future. Thanks for showing me the light, Gary. You are wise beyond your years.

So that's why it's so hard!  May 20, 2005
If you are looking for a how to book this is not it. If you are looking at what God does in our lives in shaping us spiritually through parenting then this is the book for you.
