Because Motherhood Isn’t Just a Job. It’s a Calling. A mother’s day is packed with a multitude of tasks that require energy and time: preparing meals, washing clothes, straightening and cleaning the house, and caring for children. These jobs all are necessary and crucially important. But in the dailyness of providing for a child’ s physical, emotional, and social needs, vital opportunities for spiritual nurture and training can be overlooked. This doesn’t have to be the case. You can focus your energy on what matters most. Learn how you can: • Make Life’s Mundane and Nitty-Gritty Moments Work for You and Not Against You. • Discover Ways to Make Character-Building a Natural Part of Live. • Teach Your Child in the Same Way Jesus Taught the Disciples. • Pass on Crucial Gifts that Will Serve Your Family for a Lifetime. Using biblical wisdom and practical teachings, Sally Clarkson shows how you can make a lasting difference in your child’s life by following the pattern Christ set with his own disciples–a model that will inspire and equip you to intentionally embrace the rewarding, desperately needed, and immeasurably valuable Ministry of Motherhood.

Heartfelt Discipline

Following God's Path of Life to the Heart of Your Child

Childhood discipline is your responsibility. If you're a parent, your children need you to discipline them. There's no debate about that in Scripture. They, and God, are expecting you to "bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." But there is one thing open to debate... how to discipline your children. What does the Bible really say? Is there a divinely-designed method, a promise of parental success? Or is there a better way? There's no formula for childhood discipline. No laws, no rules. God has provided a "way" that is better. It's the way of life, the biblical picture of the path we walk with God. It's all about faith, relationship, Spirit, and heart. As a parent, you're already on that path of life with your children. You can lead them with three key principles of discipline: Direction--Guiding and showing them how to walk the path with God Correction--Getting them back on the path when sin leads them off of it Protection--Guarding them from temptations that could draw them away In Heartfelt Discipline Clay Clarkson helps you understand what the Bible really says about childhood discipline. Drawing on twenty-eight years of parenting and his personal study of the Bible, Clay fully fleshes out God's way of "path of life parenting." It will change how you think about your responsibility to discipline your children. It will put you on the path to your child's heart.
