Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to but anxious about their child-rearing responsibilities. They've tried the countless parenting books on the market, but many of these are strident, fear-based books that loving parents instinctively reject, while still searching for direction. Now Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries, offers a refreshing new look at parenting. Rejecting rigid rules and checklists that don't work, Dr. Kimmel recommends a parenting style that mirrors God's love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it-creating a solid foundation for growing morally strong and spiritually motivated children. Releasing in an affordable trade paper edition, this revolutionary book presents a whole new way to nurture a healthy family.

Over the last several decades' society has drastically changed in their opinion of how families should parent. We have a country that has moved away from the biblical model of grace-based parenting. Television, the internet, cellphones, and social media have brought monumental changes into our lives. And yet, the needs of our children and youth have remained the same. They still need love, acceptance, and care from the most important people in their lives, YOU! What does grace-based parenting really mean? How do parents implement it in their homes? Amazing Parenting is about how to become a grace-based, faith led parent through the fundamental principles the Bible teaches. Changes in our society do not have to dictate how we parent or care for our children. God's Word provides Biblical answers to raising our families. It is more important than ever before that we allow the gospel of grace to be the foundation for how we live, love and lead. God knows parenting can be tough sometimes but He has not left you alone without answers. Become the amazing parent your children needs through grace-based parenting.
Author of Grace-Based Parenting and the best-selling Little House on the Freeway, Dr. Tim Kimmel helps Christian parents avoid the potential problems their well-meaning parenting styles could create. This book offers a new way to look at the "ideal" Christian home and shows why "cocoon-style" Christian homes don't always work. Many parents have "done it all" when it comes to the checklist of good Christian parenting, only to see their son or daughter step away from their belief system and embrace other lifestyle choices. Dr. Kimmel helps to increase the chances that your children will develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood. It will also provide help and hope for those already dealing with a rebellious teen and teach them how to lead the child back into a walk of faith.
