This is a must-read if you care about your child's heart!
March 6, 2019
This somewhat small sized book is chocked full of guidance and suggestions and should be on the must-read list of all Christians involved with children. Moody Publishers sent me an early release of the book and the opinions are all my own. I'm a verified purchaser because I bought one to give away, I feel so strongly about this book. First of all, I love that it’s not intimidating by being a huge long read. I’m a busy mom and my time is precious. She gets straight to the point and this is a great size book to slip into my purse. Second, I’ve read many books on changing the heart but this is the first one that makes it so practical. There is a section at the end of each chapter on Things To Do and Things To Think About. Third, everything is grounded in scripture, which I love. You will be armed with plenty of scripture to point your child toward the Lord, and in a loving way. I thoroughly enjoy her guidance on taking off character traits that are not desirable and learning to replace them with those that are. Fourth, Kathy speaks to my heart by making sure we have a good relationship with our children. She guides you so you can build or repair a relationship with your child, and teaches you how to be a great coach for your child as well. This would make an excellent book for moms, dads, grandparents, those who are involved in children’s ministry, small group study, or husband-wife devotional/study. My husband and I have done quite a few of the Things To Do and it’s been so helpful to see our kids in a different way; to be able to help them start to change some character traits. My eyes have also been opened to some changes I can make to be a better parent as well. As it is noted in the book, more is caught than is taught about many things. Do yourself a favor and get this book and start reading it right away. It will inform, challenge, motivate, inspire, and give you hope. God has given you an amazing task of helping to shape a child’s heart and this book is an essential guide.
