Being a Dad Who Leads by John MacArthur: This short book is a great starting point for dads who have not thought much about how they are going to lead their children spiritually. John MacArthur walks dads through being the spiritual leader in their children’s lives by starting from the beginning and moving through the years. His approach is intensely biblical, encouraging and practical, beginning with the WHY and then moving into the HOW.
Raising a Modern Day Knight by Robert Lewis: Robert Lewis gets dads thinking about all the things our boys need to become godly men which the culture has largely ignored or lost. A values system, a ceremonial entrance into manhood etc. These are things our boys can only get from us.
Bonding With Your Child Through Boundaries by June Hunt: They say parenting doesn’t come with a manual. True, but this book is about as close as a parent can get. Comprised of short, 2-3 page sections on issues, parents can read up on godly principles for handling things like lying, cheating, cell phone addiction, behavior problems in the car, name-calling, sexual curiosity etc. Keep this book close and refer to it often.
Straight Talk With Your Kids About Sex by Josh and Dottie McDowell: The topic of sex is one of the scariest and most neglected topics by Christian parents. We don’t want to release our kids into the world unprepared for the temptation, deception and danger they will face. And we know that if we don’t teach them what sexuality is all about, the world, the flesh and the devil will. But HOW do we go about training them up? The McDowells will equip you here to cut through all the awkwardness of the conversations, all the questions about what words to use and what terms to avoid, and will teach you to communicate God’s truth with wisdom and gentleness. Let’s protect our kids from sexual damage.
History Lives (Box Set) by Mindy and Brandon Withrow: The history of Christ’s Church is one of the most invigorating subjects the world has ever known. And it is vitally important that we know some of the great men and women we have benefited from over the last 2,000 years. In this set, some of the most important figures and events in Church history are put into kid-friendly stories. We can now teach our kids history in a fun and accurate way!
