Our Favorite Parenting Books

ID-10033427

One of the great joys of being a parent is watching your child parent your grandchildren. But it also is a reminder of how difficult parenting is—really difficult! This is especially true for those of us who long to raise a future generation of men and women who love the Lord their God with all their minds, souls, hearts, and strength and are equipped to stand firm amidst the follies of this present age. So parents should make use of as many good, biblical, and encouraging resources as possible. Here is a list of CDG favorites:

Gospel-Powered Parenting: How the Gospel Shapes and Transforms Parenting

Teach Them Diligently: How to Use the Scriptures in Child Training

The Faith of a Child A Step-by-Step Guide to Salvation for Your Child

Your Child’s Profession of Faith

Shepherding a Child’s Heart

Instructing a Child’s Heart

Age of Opportunity: A Biblical Guide to Parenting Teens

Future Men

Special note to children’s ministry workers and grandparents: Don’t feel left out! You can also benefit from these resources. I read each of these books AFTER my children reached adulthood. They have helped me be a better teacher in the Sunday school classroom and in my grandparenting. Additionally, I would even go as far to say that they have challenged me to be a better parent to my adult children, as each book offers timeless truths.
