Discover a parenting style that nurtures a healthy family, mirrors God's love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior.
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.
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.

You want only the best for your kids. And you want them to be successful. Sure, there's nothing wrong with that. But what if there was something more? Could your definition of success be leaving out the most important part?
What about greatness? Where does it fit in? "If you aim your children at anything less than greatness, you'll set them up to miss the whole point of their lives," says author Tim Kimmel. In Raising Kids for True Greatness, Kimmel turns the definition of success on its head and guides you in preparing your child for a life that will easily eclipse the goals of those who are merely successful.
Learn how to prepare your kids for rich lives of true greatness by helping them find answers to life's three most crucial, life-changing questions regarding their mission, mate, and master:
- What are they going to do with their potential?
- Who will they spend their lives with?
- Who will they live it for?
Yes! You can love your kids in amazing ways you may have never even thought of! And one of America's top advocates for the family will help you do it.
In 50 Ways to Really Love Your Kids, Tim Kimmel offers moms and dads simple, how-to ways to express love to their children. His thought-provoking ideas include: "Have a love that works overtime to simplify your children's lives," "Model a love that always wants to give more than is asked of it," "Show your kids how to love life and live it in an adventurous way," "Love your kids so much that you'll not allow excuses to cover their moral infractions," "Start loving your kids' future spouses now," and "Don't force God to discipline your kids…you do it."
Each of the 50 ways fits neatly onto an attractive, two-page reading to challenge and inspire parents, ages 25-55.
