resourceofthemonth - raising kids who turn out right

This year is the 30th anniversary of Family Matters. That’s right folks! We’ve been at this thing for three decades now! We have met so many wonderful people, partnered with some great ministries like Focus on the Family and Family Life, and God has used our efforts to touch the lives of countless families with the message of His grace. Praise the Lord!! One of the ways we would like to celebrate what God has done in us and through us is to highlight one resource a month as a way to familiarize you with what Family Matters has to offer in order to minister to you better.

This month’s resource highlight is Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right by Dr. Tim Kimmel.

Every parent hopes their kids will turn out right. They pray that when their children leave the nest, they will be ready to face the world. And they hope that their kids will be equipped to stand strong in life’s battles.

There are no shortcuts to successful parenting . . . no secret formulas to raising kids of strength and character. However, there are steps you can take to prepare your children for the challenges ahead. But you’ll need an effective game plan.

With warmth and conviction, Tim Kimmel outlines a strategy for positive parenting–a plan that gives you reachable goals, while allowing for your personal parenting style. You have only a few short years with your child…make the most of the time you have.

    Always looking for parenting resources. Sounds like a great book to teach myself and other parents and demonstrate to my kids about the awesome grace of God.

  11. We LOVED Grace Based Parenting, I’m sure this one is fabulous too. Thank you!!

    I want to read this book because I need help! I have allowed my kids to rule the roost sort of speak and, just today, see how my sister is struggling even more than I am! She has significant disrespect issues with her kids that need to be addressed and I am sure I am not far behind her in the depth of the problems if I don’t change my parenting skills pronto! I have a heart that wants to help others and am prayerfully hopeful to help my sister, and myself in the process.

  17. Kristin Thomson says:

    Parenting is SO hard and doing it God’s way is impossible (apart from GRACE!)… So as a mom to many little’s I need all (Biblical) the help I can get! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Hi Tim and Darcy and other Tim!
    Love to have a copy of the book….I already follow you on Twitter and we are friends on Facebook. Now that we have our first child I am reading Grace Based Parenting and loving it, so I need to get another one when I am finished with it because I want Dylan to turn out right! :)

  25. Amy Bridges says:

    I want to read “Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right” because this world is in trouble! If God’s people don’t turn out more of His people to be his hands and feet on this earth the forces of evil will win fast and big. I also loved Grace-based parenting — it hugely impacted my underastanding of the grace God offers me and how I can (and should) pass it on!

  26. David Murphy says:

    My wife and I lead Family Ministries at our church, and we see a need for giving parents in our midst resources to help them raise their children with grace and truth.

  27. michelle gleeson says:

    I want to read this book because I am the first Christian generation in my family and it is the most important job to keep God in our family for generations to come. Unfortuantely, I was raised in a home without Jesus and I worry about not having the right knowledge and experience to pass onto my children. This book would be a great gift to my entire family.

  29. iraida malpica says:

    i would love to read this book, because sometimes i feel that the world is taking out of my children even though i try to fight it, and i believe the book will equip me for it

  30. Andrea says:

    What parent couldn’t use a little help in “Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right”?! I know that I sure could!

  31. Maggie C says:

    I’d like to win this because this is my goal ( of course! ). And I think it would be great to have some help setting appropriate goals for myself! My children are young and I’m thinking about these things NOW.

  35. Brenda E says:

    Just finished reading “Grace-Based Parenting”. Would love to read this book next!

  36. Amy Rohr says:

    Parenting is hard, taxing, empties us of ourselves and one of the greatest joys in this life. We need all the help we can get. :)

  37. Nicole says:

    I just finished Grace Based Parenting and gave it to my husband! I don’t want to stop reading! It stays with me throughout the day and I need all the support I can get.

  38. Lisa says:

    I read and gleaned a lot from Grace Based Parenting and would live to also read this one. Parenting is the hardest job in the world and the spiritual discipleship of our children is a heavy responsibility that brings with it fear of the unknown future. I think the points brought up in Raising Kids Who Turn Out Right are important ones to consider and understand While there is still parenting at home left to do.
