Jeannie's passion is inspiring and equipping parents in raising children who live from the freedom found in being wholeheartedly and unconditionally loved (and liked!) by Jesus Christ.

This book is so refreshing, it takes the pressure off us as parents, which is nearly impossible, and lets us give our fears anxieties tears and imperfection to God. What I took from this book and is that its so hard to get it right but if we are open to his grace we can lessen the falls by reading his word and enveloping ourselves and our children in his love. How great is it that we are not expected to be perfect because we can't be?? I need to know this and needed to know this even before having children. This book is for all ages of parenting, before children, having children and once they are grown. Jeannie Cunnion teaches is that we are forgiven already and loved already. I love how this book is written, which is why I gave 5 stars, she intertwines verse with actual life experience that is so relatable. She gives real practical advice on how to teach our children about Gods Grace and never ending love. I will definitely need/read this book many times during this parenting thing that is so hard but so incredibly amazing!!!

I need to re-read the message of grace in this book EVERY DAY! As a rule follower and a rule enforcer, I focus too much on my kids actions. This book reminds me that what REALLY matters is my relationship and my child's relationship with Christ. Getting to know God and rest in what he has already done for us can be the best fuel for our parenting. PTWC reminds us of this truth in a very down-to-earth way and also provides very useful practical tips for keeping this focus.

She does not give a parenting to-do list, but instead frees you from the worldly to-dos that bog us all down.

A MUST read!

I first heard Jeannie's message in person at one of her talks at our church. My oldest son was 16 at the time and my younger was 14. I went to the talk expecting to hear information for younger kids, but I went with a friend to be supportive. What I found was one of the most life-changing messages our family has heard to date--and one very relevant to teens and their families. I was very moved by the message for my boys, "you are fully known, fully loved and fully forgiven". My boys are now 17 and 15.5 years old and my husband and I find Jeannie's book extremely beneficial in helping us navigate troubled waters. It was like a switch went off as soon as we started correcting and teaching first and for most with the premise stated above. It changed our family dynamic from one of blame, shame, guilt, despair and self loathing to something much more positive. People say "big kids, big problems"--boy is that true. Sometimes with teens their struggles can be a matter of life and death. We must teach and correct them in order for them to thrive in the world--they also need to learn to hear our concerns over their behavior and choices, to forgive themselves and move on. We have found that putting Christ and his loving Grace and forgiveness in the middle of our family--in the good times and bad--has changed the way we interact with each other and receive criticism. To start with the premise that Jesus died for us while we were still sinners is profound. There is no such thing as a perfect parent or a perfect child. If we strive for perfection in ourselves and each other, of course we are constantly failing.Read more ›

As I read Jeannie's book, I began to realize that my struggles in parenting were mainly due to not only my unrealistic expectations of my children, but also because of my unrealistic expectations of what I thought God wanted of me. Her book reminded me that there is nothing I can do to make Jesus love me more and there is nothing I can do to make Him love me less. Yes, I've been told this before, but until now, it had not resonated in my heart. Jeannie paints a beautiful picture of God's "unrestricted love and absolute acceptance of us" because as she puts it, until we accept God's grace, we will struggle in vain to let it flow through us to our kids. "It's not about what we do. It's about what his grace does through us when we surrender to his wholehearted acceptance of us." This has truly gripped my heart and I know it will grip yours too. She is real, humble, honest, practical and gives excellent resources and scriptures to help parents nourish their children's relationship with Jesus. Parenting the Wholehearted Child is a book that needs to be read over and over again!

Jeannie offers a groundbreaking gift in her book, Parenting the Wholehearted Child as she offers readers the truth that we don't have to be perfect to let our kids know that they are perfectly loved. She extends grace after grace on every page as she artfully and humorously tells us the story of how accepting God's grace for herself has allowed her to extend grace to her children in a way that lets them taste the freedom that comes from a relationship with Jesus. As a marriage and family therapist, it will be my #1 recommendation. And as a parent, it will be my #1 resource. Enjoy!
