Plenty of parenting books focus on how to fix bad behavior. Not so many focus on how to cultivate a child’s heart. Even fewer focus on how to deal with our own hearts as parents.
My First, Second & Third Attempts at Parenting is not a how-to book. It’s a collection of stories and reflections designed to help you discover the elusive, yet most important, part of parenting—the heart. Chapter by chapter, story by story, we will examine God’s heart towards children, our hearts as parents, and how we can prepare our children’s hearts to know and love their heavenly Father.
