Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family


“I love my child, but parenting is hard.”

Parenting is tough!  As a mother, I know how tiring it can be. As a teacher, I hear the stories often of the real struggles you face.   I know how we find ourselves believing that we aren’t doing it right!  Nearly everyone of us would say we love our kids unconditionally, but we find that this is the hardest job we truly have in life.

Today’s world, as it was many years ago, is a struggle.  We face battles daily in our homes, workplace, and schools. It certainly isn’t limited to those locations though.  As a Christian, life is even harder as we face persecution throughout the globe.  As a child today, there are many additional challenges.

I was fortunate to grow up in a God fearing, Christian loving family.  Today though, it is different.  Our children live in a day and age when things are instant, and that includes the pain associated with peers and just understanding your place in this world.   They are exposed to so much more than we ever were!  Frankly, that is scary!  Equipping them with the tools to face life the way God intends for them to is priceless.


In the midst of folding laundry, coordinating carpool schedules, and breaking up fights, many parents get lost. Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.
In this life-giving book Parenting: 14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family,   Paul Tripp offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents. Freed from the burden of trying to manufacture life-change in our children’s hearts, we can embrace a grand perspective of parenting overflowing with vision, purpose, and joy.

Whether you find parenting intuitive or impossible, we could all use a hand here and there. Paul Tripp shows you that God’s grace is our road map for parenting!

    As a mother, grandmother, and now a great grandmother, I am so blessed to have the opportunity to be involved in the raising of another generation. Thank the Lord I am Saved. Now my job is to make sure that all in my family are saved. God is GREAT and Good and only one is unsaved, the newest. With that being said I am confident that through resources like this book, another soul will be added to the Kingdom.
