There is no greater reward than seeing our children truly blessed. They have the power to open our hearts to unreached treasures. Their triumphs cause celebration, their achievements awe, and so, as parents, we must train our children in the way of Godly victory. They will fight battles, they will feel pain, they will struggle to understand, they will be tempted, and they will experience the suffering of a fallen world. Whether they go from strength to strength and glory to glory is initially dependent on parents.
You are God's first line of defense, His first source of blessing, His protection, and His voice. Before they can read, you are quite literally the Word of God for your children. This is parenting, God's way.
Letters from God for Children is a parent-child journey that will knit your hearts together. It is a cozy fire to snuggle by. It is a flotation device for parents who may be struggling to connect. It is a compass for parents and children needing God's direction. It will strengthen families and navigate them through the rocks that others have crashed upon.
You will have the opportunity to have creative, God-inspired interactions with the hearts of your children. The anatomy of the parent-child relationship will change as you shift into a mentor's role. The influence of peers, media, and threatening voices will dwindle, and you will be equipped to nurture fertile places, heal brokenness, and redirect any rebellion.
Along their journey, many children begin to struggle with identity, security, esteem issues, and hidden hurts. These feelings can manifest through disobedience, aggression, lying, rebellion, or closing up and withdrawing. Any loving parent who is concerned with the spiritual well-being of their children will recognize these behaviors as the warnings they are. Parents are the guardians of their child's spirit and must have access to it. Letters from God for Children will keep the hidden heart chambers open and help to open ones that have been sealed shut. Bad seeds will be uprooted and God will use you to plant truth in their place.
This is not a "how to" book. It is a God-breathed invitation into parenting as He intended. Answers to your child's questions will be revealed. You will find yourself teaching your son or daughter spiritual truths that will equip him or her for God's great purposes. They will flourish as they begin to understand mercy, purpose, faith, love, power, purity, security, and the many facets of God.
This may just be the greatest tool a parent could receive for reaching into their child's heart and pulling out the God-destiny that was written there.
