Giving Your Words: The Lifegiving Power of a Verbal Home for Family Faith Formation by Sally & Clay Clarkson: Book Review

 **Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Shaping the hearts, minds, and souls of your children starts with your words.

As a parent, your heart's desire is to guide your children to love and follow God. Yet so many voices are offering help and advice. Whose voice should shape your children?

Sally and Clay Clarkson suggest the answer is as simple as it is powerful: yours. They will show you how to use your own words to shape your child's life for Christ.

The biblical principles and wisdom they offer, drawn from their years of raising four children and mentoring parents worldwide, will equip you as a word-giving parent.

Start here to gain confidence to personally and intentionally cultivate a verbal home, one filled with words of faith formation and spiritual nurture.

Then, when your children "take your words for it," they will hear God's voice.

Words matter.

As someone who absolutely loves words, that is something I know all too well. The words we say to one another can make such a huge difference... and our words can be such an important part of our parenting journey, one that we may not give all that much thought to.

This book is a good reminder of that. 

I have read many books on Christian parenting, but this one with its focus on words certainly does set itself apart from the rest. It is packed full of helpful tips and scriptural references, which I think is the most important thing when we're looking at Christian parenting. How can we talk about giving our words, if we don't stay in THE Word? I really just found the whole idea behind this book really interesting and thought it was done very well. If you're looking for a good Christian parenting book, this one is worth checking out.
