Every parent, every home should own this book!,
This review is from: THE LIGHTED PATH: 101 Practical Lessons Using God's Word as Guidance For Parents, Grandparents, And Anyone Who Loves Children (Paperback)The Lighted Path is the best book for first-time parents, parents with older and multiple children, grandparents and caretakers alike (related or not). Lyn Kirkland has taken her years of parenting and grandparenting experience, combined with her years of experience counseling couples and individuals alongside her husband, a pastor and also an accomplished author in his own right, and given the world a simple, easy to reference guidebook for raising confident, happy and productive children.
What's most refreshing about this book is the conversational style that comes across as the comforting encouragement of a mom or a friend. It only makes it better that she references scripture verses, so you can trust that the guidance given is founded in parenting wisdom that has stood the test of time. Check out the other book written by Lyn and her husband, James Kirkland - "Healing For The Broken-Hearted" (http://www.amazon.com/Healing-Broken-Hearted-Effective-Spiritual/dp/1413445268/ref=pd_rhf_se_p_t_2) - a must read for anyone who has suffered a broken-heart or experienced disappointment in relationships. "Healing" changed my life. It gave me the hope and coping skills I needed to move forward.
As a parent who works fulltime with leadership responsibilities, cares for parents, etc., I treasure those resources that help me simplify my life and keep me focused on what's most important. The Lighted Path is my daily go-to for helping to keep me pointed towards parenting the right way, and being the kind of example I want my children to follow. Whether you are a Christian or not, this book is the best resource I've found to date on parenting. Do yourself a favor and order it today for yourself or give it as a gift.
