Description of Give Them Grace: Dazzling Your Kids with the Love of Jesus by Elyse Fitzpatrick

A guide to help Christians parent their children with grace and an emphasis on the cross.

How are parents to raise children so they don't become Pharisees (legalists) or prodigals (rebels)? It's all about grace-filled, gospel-driven parenting, says the mother/daughter team of Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson. Christian parents, in their desire to raise godly children, can tend toward rule-centered discipline. There is, however, a far more effective method--a grace-motivated approach that begins with the glorious truth of God's love for sinners.

In Give Them Grace, parents will learn how to connect the benefits of the cross--especially regeneration, adoption, and justification--to their children's daily lives. Chapters address topics such as our inability to follow the law perfectly, God's forgiveness and love displayed at the cross, and what true heart obedience looks like. Fitzpatrick and Thompson also discuss discipline, dealing with popular culture, and evangelism as a way of life. Parents will find this book a great resource for raising grace-filled, Jesus-loving kids.

5 StarsA Revolutionary Way of Parenting
This book floored me. As the mother of a 15-month-old, I am already feeling the pressures of raising an obedient, motivated, well-behaved, well-adjusted child. But this book taught me that none of those expectations are Scriptural. Yes, we are called to train our children and give them guidelines to help them flourish - but our ultimate goal as parents should be to drench them in the Gospel message. Imagine my shock when I realized that all the popular parenting methods I've been using are actually teaching my daughter that her worth is based on her works, not on the condition of her heart. The authors did an excellent job of describing how to parent from a Scriptural perspective without becoming legalistic or overly focused on a rigid set of rules. I devoured this book and will be reading it over and over again as I seek to raise a young woman whose main desire is to serve Christ. I cannot recommend it highly enough - I've already given away multiple copies to new parents!
