Parenting is hard work. The hardest job that I have ever had or will ever have. This last month while my husband was away for about 9 days, I started working on yelling less and communicating with my daughter more. We’ve prayed together about it and she reminds me often that she is working on whining and complaining less, while I am working on yelling less. It has been a great bonding experience for us. It has shown her that mommy needs help too.
This is why I am excited to be reviewing The Love Dare For Parents by Stephen Kendrick & Alex Kendrick. Do you all remember The Love Dare movie? The book that went along with that movie was for couples but now there is one for parenting.
About The Love Dare for Parents
From the authors of international best-selling marriage book The Love Dare comes The Love Dare for Parents, a 40-day journey of “dares” challenging one or both parents to understand, practice, and communicate Christ-like love to their children.
Easy to read and work into a busy schedule, The Love Dare for Parents is designed to “turn the hearts of parents to their children and turn the hearts of children to their parents” (Malachi 4:6) so that moms and dads can more fully enjoy and delight in their children while maximizing the positive impact they have on their lives long term.
Each day brings a promising key verse from Scripture, a biblical principle about love that applies to parenting, a specific challenge the parent does for the sake of their child, and space to journal thoughts and reflect on what happened that day.
The Love Dare for Parents even includes access to a FREE online parenting assessment, helpfully keyed to select material in the book.
