Book Description

What will it take to raise kids who love God? Have you ever wondered how you can train your children so they want to obey? Have you ever pondered how you can prevent your kids from resisting a relationship with you as they get older? In When a Mother Follows Christ, Katie Hoffman reveals the biblical principles of raising kids to follow Christ. While no one can make perfect kids, it's easy to have great kids who will bring you delight and not shame as they grow older. Learn how to develop godly character in your children, be an example for them to follow, and how a few simple, easy changes can make a huge difference in your children's attitudes and actions.

You will learn:

*How to teach your children to willingly do what you ask the first time-which will reduce anger and frustration

*What the Bible says is key to raising kids who will not bring you shame as they grow older

*How to actively train your children so they are a source of delight to you and others

*How to be an example for your children to follow

*Why character is key to preventing sibling rivalry, and how you can develop godly character in your children

*How to be connected to your children so they will want to do what you say, even as they grow up

*Practical ways to stop sibling rivalry in its tracks

*One easy way to keep your kids out of trouble

*The one thing that will keep your kids from resisting you when you try to train them

*The very simple, very easy thing I do that completely changes the atmosphere of our home

*How changing one thing made a huge difference in the way my children treat me and others-which makes them much more attentive and respectful

*How to teach your children the most important thing they will ever learn-how to have a relationship with Jesus as their Savior

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reminder February 22, 2012
By Laurel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thoroughly enjoyed this.
There were some formatting issues in the Kindle edition, but not a big deal.

Excellent reminder of what is important in raising children. I didn't feel like I learned anything new- but thought she did a great job of putting vague ideas and knowledge I had into words that clarified it well.

I think this would be a great book for a mom's group to go through. The questions in the back are very helpful in solidifying the learning in one's mind.

I also really loved that she did not belabor her points. She made the point, explained it, and moved on. Made it much more enjoyable to read.

This is one that I will be going back to many times in years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done! November 10, 2014
By Robin
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Do you want to have a peaceful home and obedient children? Learn the principles in this book and apply them to your family and you will be well on your way to that peace in your household. I used some of these principles with my older, now grown children, and it made such a difference in our home. Looking back, I wish I had done more of what was said in this book. This book is especially helpful to moms with younger children, as it is easier to train them well from the outset. But the principles CAN be applied to older children as well. If you are willing to exercise discipline in your own life to follow through with your children, you will reap great rewards! An excellent resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick ready, very practical for Godly parenting December 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I work in an orphanage in Thailand. Staff development is one of the most important things I do. Since most of our staff are women, this book has been an excellent resource. It is short and easy to read. Once I started it, I could not put it down. It has a great introduction and the chapters are well divided. I teach a chapter a week and focus on that particular concept of being a Godly mother. It really stresses developing good relationships with kids and getting priorities in focus. In my experience these are essential parts of raising children. Many of the things in this book are things I was already doing, but it was great to have the thoughts so well developed and clearly explained. It has greatly helped me in teaching the staff at our children's home.

"Dear Christian Woman Who is Trying Her Best to be a Godly Mother,
You're failing miserably. It's a good thing I'm so perfect and can tell you how wonderful it is to have beautiful relationships with your children.
A Much More God-Filled Mother Than You"

As someone who spent most of my childhood being verbally, mentally and sexually abused I struggle with depression. This book point blank said that if I'm depressed the problem is that I'm not playing with my kids enough and that will make my conscience ill at ease. Well, gosh, I wish I'd known that before I spent thousands of dollars on therapy and medication to help with this phony diagnosis of severe PTSD.

I'm sure Katie Hoffman meant well, but this book is written for mothers who really don't struggle in their daily lives with their Christian relationship or with their mothering skills. The moms that loved it viewed it as a easy, breezy reminder of what they already have embedded in them. This is not a book that really digs into how to be a mother that follows Christ. The books assumes mothers don't get depressed or stressed and are constantly living in rapturous joy over the children God has brought into their life. The reality for most mothers contradicts this assumption. I was really hoping for a book that related to bad days, burned dinners, homework fights, and wondering where God went. This is not that book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motivational!! August 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a "must read" for all Christian mothers! The reader is motivated to write down concrete rules, goals, etc. to better help train her child/children. The author also gives examples and shares things that has worked and helped her. Most of all, it is very solid Biblically and encourages the reader in her calling as a mother. I believe the advice given in this book will give me some amazing tools in raising my 4 young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars a quick read but full of good information August 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this book in one sitting. It was full of good info with examples that made things become more clear. At the end of the book, there are discussion questions to help you retain more of the information. I will have to read it again to help me answer the discussion questions, but well worth the extra time.
