In this six-session participant’s guide, designed for use with Sacred Parenting DVD, Gary Thomas helps you and your group look at parenting from a different perspective: not about successfully raising perfect children, but about you becoming more holy.
"Parenting a child is an in-depth course on spiritual formation, expressly designed by God to shape your soul in ways you cannot imagine. What if one of God’s primary intentions for you as a parent isn’t about successfully raising perfect children, but about you becoming more holy? Sacred Parenting helps you look at parenting from a different perspective. In this six-session participant’s guide, designed for use with the Sacred Parenting video, Gold Medallion Award-winning author Gary Thomas will offer a road map to new and sacred territory defined by the children God has given you to teach you his lesson in love. Sacred Parenting will help you and your group learn how God can transform dirty diapers, a toddler’s tantrums, and a teenager’s silence in order to transform you into a person who reflects the image of Christ.
