This blog is about you, your children, and God.
Far too little is written about your children from a biblical perspective. There is much written from man’s perspective. There are anecdotes and hand-me-down intuitions too numerous to count. In 1995, Shepherding a Child’s Heart entered the discussion about raising children. What distinguished this book from others at that time is that it presented a comprehensive view of raising children from a biblical viewpoint. The truths presented in Shepherding frame the discussions about rearing children in a biblical light. This biblical light focused upon recognizing the importance of the heart. Behavior can be manipulated, contrived and deceptive. Underneath behavior lies the heart. When the heart is addressed, the frustration of dealing only with behavior is abated. This approach struck a chord with Christian parents who wanted to hear something fresh and encouraging about training their children.
This chord still resonates with God’s people because it is a timeless chord. So, as we begin this journey into the blogosphere, our reference point will be these same truths. We begin with revisiting some of the crucial applications from Shepherding a Child’s Heart.
