A new book from the Clarksons is on it’s way to a young family that I love this week! The Lifegiving Parent by Clay and Sally Clarkson.
Clay and Sally Clarkson have been writing books and speaking about family life and education for many years. For the most part, I’ve read books by Sally, and have enjoyed hearing Clay’s “voice” in this book. Each chapter is begun by Mr Clarkson, with wisdom from the Bible and history. Sally weaves in applicable stories and encouragement.
As always, I have found the encouragement to press on in getting to know Jesus more deeply and getting to know my kids better in the pages of this book. This is necessary so that I can more fully walk alongside them in this one life.
Part II: Living as a Lifegiving Parent and Knowing Your Child’s Personality is where I have spent most of my time in this book. I have enjoyed a fresh perspective on personality and appreciate the adjusted lens through which I see my children.
Thank you to the Tyndale Blog Network for a free copy of the Lifegiving Parent in exchange for this review.
