Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord, by Dave Stone, is a wonderful reminder of what it takes to raise a family. Through story and basic biblical teaching, Stone carefully reminds us that it is our own authentic relationship with the Lord that will have the greatest effect on our children. There is no condescension or accusation but a honest appeal to parents to make God THE priority in our own lives in order for that decision to be made by our kids. Stone covers many areas of parenting from time management and consistent discipline to bible reading and supportive community.
In each chapter I felt that I really could do the thing that he was suggesting instead of hopeless, like many parenting books leave me feeling. This isn't some quick fix, go step-by-step and your kids will turn out perfect angels book. Stone clearly states that the results are in the hands of God. He reminds us, though, that it is our responsibility to place our children in God's hands by our lives lived before them.
