Book Review - Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord

About the Book
Practical life lessons, real-life stories, and Scriptural truths for being the family that glorifies God.

Preaching is his gift, but Pastor Dave Stone's family is his passion and his life's blessing. Dave and Beth have been married 27 years and have raised three children, as well as shepherd the diverse families of their congregation. Raising faithful families is a key to the future of the church. Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord is the first of three books in the Faithful Family series where Dave applies his practical, conversational, and humorous approach to the challenge of building a strong spiritual foundation for the family. Some of the topics include: Authenticity, Discipline, Modeling Godly Principles, Sharing the Load, and more.

It's never too soon, or too late, to begin applying the tried and true wisdom this veteran of building strong families has to share.

Brimming with warmth and humor, Stone gives parents creative examples of how to help kids develop their own faith with ideas such as:

  • praying at significant times 
  • encouraging kids to display Scripture in special places around the home 
  • serving others alongside their parents.

My Take on the Book 
This is a book that any family should read, especially if you are having difficulty at hoe, but even if not, this is the type of book that will change the way in which you think about your family and your family dynamic. Recently we have been having a lot of issues at home with our oldest, and no matter what we say, or what we tell her about what God wants her to do, she tends to do the exact opposite (or so it seems). This book provides a practical approach to bringing your family back on an even keel and allows your family to move again in a positive new direction. This is definitely a book that will help you to instill the importance of God in your children's lives, and if you are like me you will find that a weight has been lifted once you read this book, and you will feel more prepared to start each day!
