resourceofthemonth - july

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 for True Greatness by Dr. Tim Kimmel.

To give you a little taste of how wonderful a resource  Raising Kids for True Greatness really is, here’s a quote from P. Bartolini’s Amazon Review of Raising Kids for True Greatness ::

“There are few books that I have read that have hung around my mind and ruminated within my thoughts as much as Tim Kimmel’s Raising Kids for True Greatness. This book is one of the most worthwhile reads available today. Kimmel’s brilliant thesis dismantles the success illusion (wealth, beauty, power, fame) and simplistically brings us back to the heart of the gospel message: “True greatness is a passionate love for Jesus Christ that shows itself in an unquenchable love and concern for others.” The qualities that identify a great life are humility, gratefulness, generosity, and a servant spirit. The brilliance in this is not that Kimmel had to mine through the scriptures for truths found only Greek lexicons; the brilliance is these truths are boulders that you can’t help but stumble upon if your crack open any page in the Bible…

Finally – the best part. Kimmel does not just give us a neat simple formula to raise truly great kids, instead, he shares with us concrete mandates found only in scripture that must transform the heart of the parent before they can penetrate the lives of our kids. This book is a great read for anyone – parents, singles, or grandparents. Raising Kids for True Greatness is a book whose time has come; a book that calls us to live out the great life Christ died to redeem.”
