In today’s world, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and even paralyzed by the constant flow of parenting advice. We’re flooded with so much practical information that we wonder if we’re choosing the right way. And we may be missing the one thing God really wants us to give to our children: His life. God doesn’t include a divine methodology for parenting in the Bible, but He does provide principles that can enable any faithful parent to bring His life into the life of their home.
In The Lifegiving Parent, respected authors and parents Clay and Sally Clarkson explore eight key principles―heartbeats of lifegiving parenting―to shed light on what it means to create a home where your children will experience the living God in your family. Now parents of four grown children―each with their own unique personality and gifts―Sally and Clay have learned (sometimes the hard way!) that the key to shaping a heart begins at home as you foster a deep and thoughtful God-infused relationship with each child. Filled with biblical insight and classic Clarkson stories, The Lifegiving Parent will equip you with the tools and wisdom you need to give your children much more than just a good Christian life. You’ll give them the life of Christ.
Christian parenting is not meant to be a solo or silo experience. If we’re honest, as parents we can all worry about how we are parenting and if we’re doing enough.
Clay and Sally Clarkson understand. As parents of four grown children― each with a unique personality and gifts―they have learned (sometimes the hard way!) that shaping a heart begins by fostering a deep, thoughtful relationship with each child at home.
In this companion resource to The Lifegiving Parent, you will discover through Scripture, discussion questions, and prayer prompts the tools and wisdom you need to create a home where your children will experience the living God in your family.
Let Clay and Sally be your guides in this experience (for individuals or groups) that will change you, your children, and even generations of your family yet to come. Open the doors, windows, and vents of your home to let in the love, light, and life of God. Get yours here.
