Spiritual Parenting by Michelle Anthony

posted Sep 7, 2013, 12:18 PM by Fccea Webmaster
Michelle Anthony, Ed.D. has a wide range of experience having taught at Biola University and Talbot School of Theology, serving as pastor of family ministries at ROCKHARBOR Church in Costa Mesa, CA and as a designer of curriculum for David C. Cook. In addition, she and her husband have raised two children.

She has put that experience to great use in this book. Spiritual Parenting rocks as a biblically based guide on how to appeal to the hearts of children. The instruction is solid and the examples are relevant and practical. Anthony urges 10 home "environments" to build children who are responsive to God. Get the book to see what they are. A great companion to Tedd Tripp's Shepherding A Child's Heart. Where books like Parenting with Love and Logic and How to Have a New Kid by Friday are more behavior modification -- this one and Tripp's are very helpful at understanding the need to get beyond the "what" of behavior to the "why". It also includes a strong emphasis on the need to model the spiritual values we wish to instill.
