Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Hughes, parents of four grown children and eighteen grandchildren, offer biblical guidelines and practical ideas for raising a family that loves the Lord and one another."
Christian RetailingChristian Retailing

"Provides help for families who want to honor the Lord through structure in their homes. The Hughes family, though they are not perfect (and they are the first to attest to that fact), speak from their own spiritual experience and growth. We are fortunate that they share their insights so others can profit."
The Baptist BulletinThe Baptist Bulletin

"Kent and Barbara Hughes draw from the Bible as well as from their own experience in raising children to offer readers simple, practical ideas about how to raise a godly family and have fun in the process. Disciplines of a Godly Family is ideal for young parents who are just beginning their family voyage, as well as for those who need help along the way. Recommend this book to both parents and grandparents."

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a re-release/update of the Hughes's book "Common Sense Parenting," which is out of print. I've bought quite a few used copies of that one, but I keep giving it away because it's so good. My (current) copy is heavily underlined and highlighted. That's why I was so happy to see "Disciplines of a Godly Family." The Hughes share biblical principles of family, using their own experiences with their four children as examples. The book takes parenting seriously but also has a lighthearted, humorous approach. It gives solid spiritual advice and also wonderful practical advice--all the while backing it up with the Bible. It also includes family-friendly book and movie lists and even recipes. It would make a wonderful baby shower or baby baptism gift.

I personally love it because, while acknowledging the foibles of their children (and themselves) and the fact that their family life was not perfect, it stays away from a lot of the sarcasm and negative humour you find in many parenting books. The Hughes's love for each other, their children, and God is evident here. As they say, their only regret is that they didn't have more children. I highly recommend this book!

Format: Hardcover
When I first read Kent Hughes book on "Disciplines of Godly Man" I realized that Kent had more than a godly family but is leaving a godly resource for the body of Christ. This is a must read for any family who wants to build godly traditions and holiness within the family. I also recommend highly both Kent's wifes book "Disciplines of a Godly Woman" and the foundation discipline book "Disciplines of a Godly Man" which is up there is Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. If you are looking for becoming a disciplined person in your family, then is the the right book for you. Kent has also written commentaries on several books of the Bible which are also helpful to the lay bible reader. He is a faithful pastor and joy to read.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent parenting book that gives solid Biblical principles on parenting and also provide very practical advice as well. The personal anecdotes of the Hughes' family are also heartwarming and make it evident that the Hughes' have truly lived out these principles. It is an encouragement to read as we struggle with raising our children in the Lord day by day.

There are many parenting books out there, but as far as I know not many family books. The Hughes use there own experience and Biblical principles to provide a great resource for establishing a strong legacy in your family. It is not exhaustive by any means, but it is more than enough to get you thinking about what you can do to have a meaningful legacy for your family.
