What is your calling as a parent?
In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and
breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do
everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight
of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and
In this life-giving book, Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a
to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s
plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles
centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest
parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing
grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we
do as parents.
Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our
children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting
overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.
