Shepherding a Child's Heart

I mentioned in a previous post that my small group at church was hosting a Bible study about biblical parenting, and are using the book Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp. My brother actually recommended this book to me about a year ago, and I absolutely loved it. I shared it with my friends Chris and Ali (who are in my small group), and they loved it too.

Chris (who is also our education pastor), wanted to present the book to a larger group of people, and so the Bible study was born. We started it last Sunday, and have 14 more weeks to go. We are really excited about this study and equipping the parents in our church with the biblical tools they need to raise their children.

The book is amazing, and because I found the book to be so helpful I want to give a copy away. I have been encouraged and driven by the example of many of my bloggy friends to host a giveaway of my own, but I wasn't sure what to use as the gift. I realized that two of the main things I have in common with you guys is a love for Christ, and a desire to see my children raised in a way that would be pleasing to God. This book rolls these two things up in one neat package, and I wanted to share it with you.

So, if you are interested in owning a copy of this wonderful book, just leave a comment on this post. Pass the word on to everyone, and I will randomly draw a name on Wednesday, April 23rd.

(But just in case, I've added it to my Amazon Wish List.)

I would LOVE to have that book, Xandra. I have to say that is one of the challenges that looms at me the most. How do I disciple my children into followers of Jesus Christ? You'd think it would be a no brainer, but it is very intimidating to me.
