The Love Dare for Parents

Book - The Love Dare for Parents

Authors - Stephen and Alex Kendrick

Publisher - B and H Publishing Group

256 pages, paperback

This book is a 40 day dare for parents.  Each day, in order, read one of the dares.  There is a devotional, a heartwarming message to help you complete the day's dare, and a section to mark that you completed the assignment.  There are also questions and space for your answers and thoughts.

A few samples from the book:

"Too often parents misunderstand and misguide.  Or they preplan too rigidly and then force and frustrate their child to become something God never intended.  If you tiny daughter thrives at the piano, don't pressure her to tackle the tuba." (page 23)

"Every day, with each new dare, always bear in mind this one pervasive, reorienting truth: you are handling a divine opportunity to experience and represent the love of God." (page 73)

At the end of the book there is an appendix with 8 articles on parenting.  These include such topics as "How to pray for your children" and "12 daring ideas to maximize family time."

Any parent who needs encouragement and a little extra help in Christian parenting will find this book helpful.
