Instructing a Child’s Heart

Tedd and Margy Tripp

Price: $1.99

Like most books on parenting, this one is filled with moments that are at the same time obvious and profound. You will encounter statements that are so obvious you wonder if they really needed to be said, only to realize that you could have used that bit of wisdom only moments ago. While muttering, “Well, duh!” you’ll also feel twinges of shame and regret. This is a book that is immediately applicable both to parents and to their children. It is a book that turns to the Bible to provide God’s wisdom on how we can be effective parents. “Your greatest need,” says Tripp, “is to understand deep truths from the Bible. Solid parenting skills are built on solid truth.”
This is not a book that tells you how to control or manipulate your children so that they will spend their lives living in an irrational fear of a domineering parent or a hostile deity. Instead, it is a book that teaches parents to gently but consistently build into children a worldview that begins with the heart and that focuses on God and on His glory. “We should impress truth of the hearts of our children, not to control or manage them, but to point them to the greatest joy and happiness that they can experience–delighting in God and the goodness of his ways.”
We’ve waited a long time for the follow-up to Shepherding a Child’s Heart. I believe most parents will feel the wait has been well worth it.

Tim Challies

From interaction with their peers to the instruction and correction that they receive at home, Children interpret their experience from a worldview that seeks to answer their fundamental questions: Who am I? What do I exist for? Where can I find joy? We need to provide our children with a consistent, persuasive, biblical framework for understanding the world God has made and their place in it. Instructing a Child’s Heart is essential to Shepherding a Child’s Heart. The instruction that you provide for them not only informs their mind; it is directed to persuading their hearts of the wisdom and truthfulness of God s ways. Impress truth on the hearts of your children, not to control or manage them, but to point them to the greatest joy and happiness that they can experience delighting in God and the goodness of his ways.

Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions

Lisa TerKeurst

Price: $3.79

If you’ve ever felt unimpressed or defeated when those Christmas letters come piling in, informing you that Johnny got straight A’s, and Suzie just got a full scholarship, and ‘that’ family has a well oiled ship running over in their neck of the woods…then you might just love this book! Lysa doesn’t put on a facade that she’s got this thing called ‘life’ all tied up with a nice little bow. She bravely uncovers her current struggles and has you laughing at the crazy that goes on in each of our households, she just dares to say it out loud! Refreshing! Who wouldn’t want a ‘real’ friend like that telling you like it is? A ‘what you see is what you get’ kind of girl, but with some solid answers straight from the giver of life Himself. She has an engaging way of inviting you to be more authentic as you share your life with those in your circle. The more transparent we are with others, the more magnetic we become. She says, “What happens in between the smiling snapshots of life isn’t all pretty. I’m willing to admit that. And I love my friends who are brave enough to admit the messy stuff as well.” I’m grateful that I had received an advanced copy of part of this book to review, and I chuckle at the things we all tend to come unglued over(the basic dog throw up, towels, broken computers…the list goes on.) Run out and grab a copy, help is on the way!

Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how. Filled with gut-honest personal examples and Biblical teaching, Unglued will equip you to: * Know with confidence how to resolve conflict in your important relationships. * Find peace in your most difficult relationships as you learn to be honest but kind when offended. * Identify what type of reactor you are and how to significantly improve your communication. * Respond with no regrets by managing your tendencies to stuff, explode or react somewhere in between. * Gain a deep sense of calm by responding to situations out of your control without acting out of control. Sessions include: Session 1: Grace for the Unglued Session 2: Freedom for the Unglued Session 3: Four Kinds of Unglued Session 4: A Procedure Manual for the Unglued Session 5: Lingering Words for the Unglued Session 6: Imperfect Progress for the Unglued

Simply Homeschool: Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool

Karen DeBeus

Price: 99 cents

I have read many homeschooling and inspirational books over the last two years. Some can be information overload. This book is so much different and is both homeschool related and inspirational combined. It speaks to the heart-the why more so than the how. It will lift your spirits and draw you closer to the One who called you to do this. And that you are not alone on this journey!

Jennifer N

This short eBook is all about what I have learned on my homeschooling journey thus far, and why I feel it is so important to keep our focus on GOD in our homeschools.

It has been an amazing journey for me and I can’t wait to encourage you all with what I have learned along the way!

With Matthew 6:33 as the basis, this eBook will focus on:
Getting rid of physical clutter and organization tips
Getting rid of mental clutter
Curriculum choices
Meal planning
Letting God lead your homeschool
Avoiding the comparison trap, and letting your homeschool be YOUR homeschool
Not letting homeschool become an idol-Keeping GOD first

It is my desire to encourage others out there to live more simply in all areas of our lives, and this eBook focuses specifically on simplifying homeschooling.

When we keep God first in our homeschools, we can have the true JOY that is meant for our families.

Excerpt from “Simply Homeschool:Having Less Clutter and More Joy in Your Homeschool”

“I would rather be with my children sitting at
Jesus’ feet, than running around trying to be busy.
God has called us to raise our children and raise them up according
to His Will. We can’t forget that.
I truly believe that if we put the Lord first in all we do in our homeschools, He will
bless us. We may worry that we are not doing things just right, or that our kids
aren’t learning enough. If my children know the Lord first and foremost, I have
done my job.”
