Parenting is HARD, plain and simple! We do our best to raise our kids as strong Christians in a fallen world but the actual how of accomplishing that is harder than we expected. Whenever I see a book like Parenting 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, I gobble it up! I need all the help and direction I can get so I dove right into Tripp’s new book.
I realized right away a few things when I read the introduction. First, that this was going to be an incredible read for of wisdom that has the potential to be life changing if applied. I also knew that it would not be an “easy” or light read. It’s definitely a heavy book just filled with wisdom. The overall idea of the book is that we do not own our child but that we are ambassadors for God and our children have been entrusted in our care to raise but they do not belong to us. It is our duty to raise them in the way that they should to grow up to be healthy adults.
Just reading the contents I knew I would find this book relatable because every single description under the chapter struck a cord with me. One that particularly jumped out was Identity:
Principle: If you are not resting as a parent in your identity in Christ, you will look for identity in your children.
Wow! That hit so close to home for me right now I wanted to jump ahead but I started at the beginning and I’m so glad I did. I needed to read this whole book! After reading it once I have to say I almost think it’s better to read it really slowly, one chapter at a time and then focus on making the needed changes in your life and just working on one thing at a time. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and feel like a failure that isn’t doing anything right but that’s not the purpose of this book.
Parenting 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family, is an a incredible read to help you walk down the path of the righteous in parenting and tells you HOW to do that and not just where you are failing.
About the Book
What is your calling as a parent? In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas. In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
