SUGGESTED BOOK OF THE MONTH
When Good Kids Make Bad Choices
by Elyse Fitzpatrick, James Newheiser, Laura Hendrickson
Writing from personal experience each of the contributing authors lend words of encouragement and hope for parents whose “dream families” has been turned upside down. This is an honest biblical approach to the reality of home life turmoil that helps struggling parents to look to the gospel.
The book is divided into three parts. The first, Seeking Comfort and Wisdom As a Parent, addresses the choices kids make and why they turn out the way they do. The second, Understanding the Ways of Your Children, gives guidance on “fruit inspection.” It also includes a discussion on medicinal remedies. The third section, Dealing Wisely with Your Children, speaks to the issue of spiritual warfare and the hope that we have in Christ. The four appendices of this book offer further help and resources that might prove to be very helpful.
Whether you are in the midst of the battle, know someone who is or just want to be equipped and prepared, When Good Kids Make Bad Choices is an excellent resource for you to read and to have on hand.
