“A masterful book! It provides valuable talking points for conversations about everything from weather to sex to music. The two essential features of biblical parenting are properly aligned in this book: penetrating insight into the heart and the centrality of the gospel.” — Tedd Tripp, pastor and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart and co-author with his wife Margy of Instructing a Child’s Heart
“This book gives great hope and encouragement to us. It is amazingly practical and refreshingly biblical. It reminds us that our everyday talk influences our children greatly.” — Lance Quinn, Associate Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
