How to Raise Godly Kids Today so They Can Transform Tomorrow

In today's culture, raising godly kids is harder--and more important--than ever. In this innovative new book, pastors Frank and Mary Garcia team up with their adult children, Sarah and Sal, to offer you powerful, practical keys to grow your family God's way.

As Mary and Frank share parenting tips, advice, encouragement, and how-tos, Sarah and Sal share their own insights on how these same lessons shaped and impacted them. Engaging, profound, and humorous, each chapter digs deep into the rich soil of God's Word, going past surface solutions to discover the root issues of difficult behaviors and parenting problems, including how to

· have a healthy soul to be a godly model to your kids,
· discipline effectively, not harshly,
· resolve sibling rivalry, 
· protect family time, 
· nourish your child's identity and gifting, 
· discern and break generational strongholds, 
· and more. 

Full of rich wisdom and practical application, this real-world guide ultimately shows how you can shape future generations by becoming the godly role model and support your kids need.

As parents, one of the greatest things we can do is to raise our children in a way that points them to Jesus. Let’s be honest, we are living in a time when that is not the popular thing to do and instead we are bombarded with worldly messages on the right and wrong way to raise our children (and most of those opinions contradict each other anyway). As a parent, it can be difficult to navigate all of that information. We just want to know how we can raise our children in a Godly way…

And that is just what Raising Families the Jesus Way can help with. This book offers a unique perspective on parenting as it’s shared from both the parents implementing these parenting ideas AND the children who were raised with them. It’s so easy for anyone to say they way they are parenting is good when it’s told only from their perspective, but hearing about it from the other side really helps to see the impacts in action. I’ve not personally seen any other parenting books like that, so it was something that I personally appreciated. It mixes Biblical insight with personal experience for a read that many parents can learn and benefit from.
