Parenting the Wholehearted Child: Captivating Your Child's Heart with God's Extravagant Grace
About the Book
Moms and dads are frantic and weary from the pressure to be perfect parents raising perfect kids. PARENTING THE WHOLEHEARTED CHILD reveals what happens when parents don't focus primarily on perfection, performance, and pretending, but understand that, through Christ, we are accepted, we are enough, we are forgiven, we are worthy, and we are unconditionally loved! And even better, this book shows how parents can translate this message of freedom to their kids. This book helps parents give their kids the one thing they need more than anything else: the knowledge that they are fully known and fully loved by God. A parent who experiences God's heart is equipped to reflect God's heart --- a heart of grace, forgiveness, and unconditional love --- to their kids. With vulnerability, conviction, and a lively sense of self-effacing humor, Cunnion guides parents on a transformative journey into raising wholehearted (not perfect) children --- children who live out of the knowledge that they are unconditionally and extravagantly loved (and liked!) by Jesus Christ. Cunnion equips parents with biblical wisdom and practical resources to: Raise their children to experience the extravagant grace of Jesus Grow in a vibrant friendship with Jesus Grow in His likeness Woven like a golden thread throughout the book is God's radical grace, reminding parents that the best thing they can do for their children is teach them what Jesus has already done for them.
