There's nothing like being a parent. Parenting is the absolute greatest and most honorable job on earth. It's also the most difficult, terrifying, amazing, and most fulfilling job on earth.
When it comes to raising kids, most parents are eager to listen and learn from those who've been-there-done-that. We crave knowing what works and what doesn't when it comes to getting your baby to sleep through the night, potty training, homework, monitoring social media, setting rules and guidelines, and all those other parenting "things".
I want to suggest, however, that parenting is about much more than the things that have just been mentioned. Parenting is about teaching our children who to be and not just what to be. Or as I like to say, "Parenting is being there; listening, talking, forgiving, asking forgiveness and most of all, loving with the same unconditional love we receive from Jesus."
That's the reason for this book - to provide you with the encouragement and instruction necessary to raise up your children to be respectful, intelligent, confident, compassionate, responsible, and godly people - you know, Awesome Kids :-)
Each of the individual subject matters we're going to look at will address both the physical or tangible aspects and the intangible or emotional aspects of parenting.
