My recommendation is to skip buying that $2.50 soda at the restaurant today, get a water, then click one of these links and get a book that can add some eternal value to your family, rather than just empty calories to your diet.
Today I have come across some Kindle Deals on three fantastic books that can change the way you approach child rearing. These books all come from a thoroughly biblical perspective and I believe create the best way to raise you children. I paid full price for these back in the day…sheesh…but you can get a great deal if you check it out today.
Shepherding a Child’s Heart – by Tedd Tripp – $1.99
“With the plethora of material on parenting and the family, it is inspiring-and distressing-to see how few books are genuinely biblical. Here is a refreshing exception. Tedd Tripp offers solid, trustworthy, biblical help for parents. If you are looking for the right perspective, and practical help, you won’t find a more excellent guide.” -Pastor John MacArthur
Instructing a Child’s Heart – by Tedd and Margy Tripp – $1.99
“This is not a book that tells you how to control or manipulate your children so that they will spend their lives living in an irrational fear of a domineering parent or a hostile deity. Instead, it is a book that teaches parents to gently but consistently build into children a worldview that begins with the heart and that focuses on God and on His glory. “We should impress truth of the hearts of our children, not to control or manage them, but to point them to the greatest joy and happiness that they can experience–delighting in God and the goodness of his ways.” We’ve waited a long time for the follow-up to Shepherding a Child’s Heart. I believe most parents will feel the wait has been well worth it.” -Tim Challies, Author
Adopted for Life – by Russell Moore – $3.03
“Yes, yes, yes! Russell Moore has given the church a God-centered, gospel-saturated, culturally-sensitive, mission-focused, desperately needed exploration of the priority and privilege of adoption. He exposes misconceptions and uncovers misunderstandings that not only keep us from fostering an adoptive culture in our churches but that keep us from truly understanding the gospel by which we are adopted as sons and daughters of God. This book contains encouragement for children who have been adopted and the parents who’ve adopted them, practical advice for parents who are considering adoption and parents who have never considered adoption, and admonishment for the church-at-large to consider how to be obedient to scriptural commands to care for orphans here and around the world. Readers will find themselves laughing on one page, crying on the next, and ultimately bowing before God, thanking him for adopting them into his heavenly family and considering how to show his love to the fatherless on earth.”
—David Platt, Senior Pastor
