Growing Children in the Light of Eternity is full of outstanding philosophies for Christian parenting. It includes diverse concepts of parenting and recommendations for using the best one. One section is devoted to getting a child off to a good start in the first few years. It contains excellent instructions for training children to control their emotions while very young, which will help any child to enjoy a happier, more successful life. There are chapters on teaching the grade school age child to mature, listen to his conscience, and take responsibility for his actions and duties. Other chapters are directed to coaching teenagers into assuming adult accountability. In this section parents will find hope, courage, and instructions for heart bonding in those years that some parents find turbulent.
This book will point parents to God's thoughts about parenting. It should help them to lead their children away from low, earthly things into the high fields of God's eternal values. Hopefully it will encourage parents to nurture their children's spirits as they nourish their bodies, because the child's spirit will live forever.
From time to time, the author has written memos to parents. This book is a collection of those bits of wisdom God has given. It is written in hopes that it will inspire weary parents, and that it will answer a few of the many questions young mothers have. It is given with a prayer that it will bless families everywhere, and that godly parents will be able to more effectively influence their children to follow the Path to Heaven.
