Many parents today focus only on the outward behavior of their children. They have developed the philosophy that if they can get their children to “act” right that they are raising them the right way. There is far more to parenting than getting children to “act” right. We have to get them to “think” right and to be motivated out of a love of virtue rather than a fear of punishment. We do this by training them in righteousness. And righteous training can only come from the Word of God. In a handy quick-reference calendar style format Wise Words for Moms identifies 22 behavior problems in children (such as disobeying, lying and tattling) and offers examples of Scripture passages that help parents address heart issues.
Wise Words for Moms is an answer to one of the most frequently asked questions, ‘How can I find the passages of Scripture that will enable me to address heart issues?’ Ginger has identified themes of response we find in our children and located passages of Scripture that will help address heart issues in richly biblical ways. This book will encourage your study of Scripture and application of God’s Truth to your correction, discipline, and motivation of your kids. – Tedd Tripp, Pastor and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart
Wise Words for Moms will help mothers to “bend young twigs into strong and faithful trees! –R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
