Every parent wants to know,

"How do I discipline my kids?"

"Parents face a crazy paradox," says author Karis Kimmel Murray. "We love our kids exactly as they are, but we also love them too much to let them stay that way!"

Disciplining kids is tough . . . even on a good day. We just want the 140-character version of what we should do when our kids' behavior scrapes the enamel off our sanity. Here's what God says:

"The Lord disciplines the one he loves," (Hebrews 12:6).

With humor and down-to-earth practicality, Karis shares stories of trial and triumph straight from the trenches of parenting. From the first page, Karis gives desperate parents a reliable recipe for peace, boundaries, and effective discipline.

In Grace Based Discipline, learn how to:

  • Stay calm, even when you're staring down the barrel of a loaded toddler
  • Customize your discipline to your child's unique personality, age, and needs
  • Set rules based on God's priorities, not yours
  • Apply consequences that really work
  • Here's the good news: you can do this. Responsive, grace-based parents are just ordinary people who've learned to tap into divine help.

    Be at your best . . . even when your kids are at their worst.

    Grace Based Discipline will show you how!

    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.

    How will you teach your children courage? They need it. You sense that already. The choices your kids face are much tougher than the ones you wrestled with--the evil more flagrant, society more corrupt, the pressure to conform more intense. At the outside, you have about fifteen years to prepare them, maybe less. They ll need courage or frankly, they may not make it. Without a plan, you won t either. Through inspiring stories, practical teaching and hefty doses of common sense, veteran family advocate Tim Kimmel charts a course your family can follow. No, it won t happen the same way in every home. But your investment in preparation will pay off when the heat s on. It s the most strategic investment you may ever make. Includes questions for small group study."

    "few things more attractively display and persuasively commend the glory of God in the life of a Christian than a Christ-centered marriage and a Christ-centered family... one that would cause the watching world to sit up and take notice." So writes Ed Hartman as he contemplates the news that his young wife is probably suffering from a brain tumor.

    It was a wake-up call to raise his family with a more eternal perspective.

    We live in a consumer culture that exalts and commends living with a passion for the moment - our society depends on it. The prospect of future gain is easily set aside in exchange for the personal gratification that we rarely delay - proven by our all-time high in consumer debt. We have bought a subtle lie that there will be no day of final accounting - and so our children don't live with an eternal perspective.

    When Ed's wife, Amy, died from that brain tumor, all the flowers at the funeral did not come with a card saying 'with our condolences' but with the phrase 'welcome to your new home' - a phrase Amy picked out herself. As Ed says:

    "Few things, like death, will put life in perspective. And few things, like accountability, will put obedience in perspective. This life is transitional; it can prepare us to be welcomed into our new, eternal home. And it provides us with a lifetime of opportunities to invite others along, beginning with our own families."

    So join in with Ed and his family as they explore what makes a Godly home - and a way of attractively displaying and persuasively commending the glory of God in the life of a Christian family.

    The four-year-old is whining about wanting candy, the twins' molars are coming in, and suddenly, everybody has to go to the bathroom. For these and many other oh-so-typical child-rearing scenarios, Sandra Aldrich has a message for the exasperated mom: Honey, Hang in There!As the seasoned mother of two now-grown children, Aldrich went through shopping cart chaos, teething, potty training, etc.-and lived to tell about it. In this rejuvenating book, she offers upbeat devotions for harried moms, delivering the message that this stage too shall pass (and then they'll miss it). With humor and warmth, Aldrich gently mentors moms in the art of nurturing their children and making the most of a season that can be crazy, but also fleeting and precious.Wasn't it just yesterday, she writes, I was in the thick of an endless round of zipping snowsuits, buckling car seats, wiping noses, and bandaging knees? For all the moms in that very situation, Aldrich's tips, experiences, and true confessions will add some encouragement and fun and subtract a little frustration from their daily lives.

    "David Elkind [is] one of psychology's leading lights."--Washington Post

    With the first edition of The Hurried Child, David Elkind emerged as the voice of parenting reason, calling our attention to the crippling effects of hurrying our children through life. He showed that by blurring the boundaries of what is age appropriate, by expecting--or imposing--too much too soon, we force our kids to grow up too fast, to mimic adult sophistication while they secretly yearn for time to act their age.
    In the more than two decades since this book first appeared, our society has inadvertently stepped up the assault on childhood through the media, in schools, and at home. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this classic, Dr. Elkind adds important new commentary to put a quarter century of trends and change into perspective for parents today, including a detailed, up-to-the-minute look at the Internet, classroom culture, school violence, and movies and television. Showing parents and teachers where hurrying occurs and why, Elkind offers insight, advice, and hope for encouraging healthy development while protecting the joy and freedom of childhood.

    Even good things can become idols if we give them central importance in our lives. Having children changes everything, and as mothers, we risk looking for life, purpose and meaning in motherhood. While being a mother brings its unique set of challenges, these years of raising children and helping them grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord provide an opportunity to grow in our own Christlikeness as well.

    Writing from her own personal experience as a mom, Christina Fox encourages mothers to prayerfully and thoughtfully examine their own hearts, and to let God use motherhood as a means of sanctification.

    Split into three sections, the first chapter looks at the meaning motherhood; chapters 2-4 are about idolatry; chapters 5-9 focus on a few different idols that mothers might worship (not an exhaustive list, but a common few); and the final chapters are about facing idols, dethroning them, and turning our heart back to the One true God.

    Chapter titles include:

    Part I

    1. The Sanctifying Work of Motherhood

    2. Made for Worship

    3. What is Idolatry?

    4. Identifying Idols in Our Lives

    5. The Idol of Children

    6. The Idol of Achievement and Success

    7. The Idol of Comfort

    8. The Idol of Control
