" Steven Curtis Chapman Singer/songwriter "Parenting the Way God Parentsis refreshingly free of formulas, and packed full of wisdom and valuable insight. I will reread it for myself and recommend it again and again in my practice. " David Thomas Child and Adolescent Therapist Coauthor ofBecoming a Dad: A Spiritual, Emotional and Practical Guide Story Behind the Book "Like most parents, I was not prepared for the job. Again and again I found myself defaulting to the parenting tactics and family dynamics recycled from my childhood. God convinced me that there was a better way. Rather than parent the way I was as a child, I can choose to parent the way I am Parented today. God my Father parents me with excellence, and I want to continue that legacy with my children. In choosing this paradigm of childrearing, however, I've had to lay down my little bag of parenting tricks and embrace the One who parents me perfectly. " -Katherine Koonce
