Description

Jesus often used planting analogies in his parables. Following Jesus' example-and using the imagery of a garden -- Nurturing Today 's Children shows us that raising children requires special care if the harvest is to be good.Just as a garden starts with soil preparation, Christian families must prepare their homes to be good soil for growing children. Once planted, a garden must be blessed with favor, flavor, and gratitude -- just as our children require models of kindness, joy, and appreciation. Without water a garden dies, and without healing respect for feelings and diversity our children will suffer the dryness of a spiritual desert. As our garden grows we must tent it -- in the same way we must encourage our children by providing a safe place for them to become their own persons.Some important topics covered in this helpful book are how to be together as a family, cultivating good intentions, fostering the habit of gratitude, dealing with fear and death, learning patience, and setting up a household church.Nurturing Today 's Children will bring thoughtful guidance about each stage of raising your children and encouraging their growth -- especially in spirit and faith. A welcome companion, and thoughtful resource that can make your home and family yield an abundant spiritual harvest.
