(If you are a mother of small children, use your imagination….)
Devotional thoughts to push you beyond your own four walls:
With the same gospel meatiness as their other devotionals, the authors provide a passage of Scripture, then briefly draw truth, insight, and conviction from it text. If facts and Biblical information are all you want, look elsewhere. But if you want a heart-impacting yet simple selection that compels response from Biblical truth, this devotional offers an oasis.
Give them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of God. Elyse Fitzpatrick & Jessica Thompson
I hope to offer this book in our Fall ’14 Ladies Bible Study, especially for our young moms. What is so significant about this book is the strikingly different perspective from which parenting (and all its requirement) springs. The chapters answer these questions, Why do we insist on obedience? What is the purpose of good behavior? How does correction and training fit into the paradigm of the gospel (children’s sin + God’s grace)? This book is engaging and thorough and practical all stirred into one refreshing drink.
