YOUR HOME CAN BE A SAFE HAVEN EVEN WHEN THE WORLD FEELS DISCONNECTED AND DIVIDED

“I think we can all agree that today’s young people are facing issues no previous generation has ever faced.” -Rachel Macy Stafford

Perfect parenting is not required to raise resilient, compassionate, and capable adults. Still, as today’s parents, educators, and leaders attempt to guide the first generation of kids battling technoference, extreme academic pressure, unrealistic expectations, less outdoor time, and more school shootings, it is best if we acknowledge that we do not know for certain how to navigate these waters. Better off are the kids whose parents are willing to rewrite their job description and admit they are up for the task of learning, discovering, and growing right alongside their kids. The new realities of parenting and modeling are challenging, to be sure, but if we are willing to live a life anchored by truth, connection, presence, acceptance, and if we are willing to live love, there is great hope.

Editorial Reviews

Review

If you are the parent or grandparent of a preteen or teen, or if you have any interaction at all with teens or tweens, you need to read this book. It is packed with powerful reminders of how our words, actions, attitudes, and availability (or lack thereof) leave indelible marks on the next generation. I was inspired, convicted, and challenged by Rachel's gentle message of how to guide, encourage, and impact young adults to live with less stress and more joy. I took away many practical applications to immediately implement in our home and parenting. -- Crystal Paine, New York Times bestselling author, podcaster, and founder of MoneySavingMom.com, Crystal Paine, New York Times bestselling author, podcaster, and founder of MoneySavingMom.com

In a world where stress and burnout make it so hard for parents and children to meaningfully connect, Live Love Now is a ray of hope. It's a book that will empower readers to adapt to the new realities of parenting and build strong relationships with the young people in their lives where they model what they want to teach them. -- Arianna Huffington, founder & CEO, Thrive Global, Arianna Huffington, founder & CEO, Thrive Global

Rachel Macy Stafford is unmatched in finding the beauty within the ordinary moments in life. In her newest book, Live Love Now, she not only shares the profound benefit of authentically connecting with our children, but she also provides specific ideas on living into it. If you hope to have an enduring, life-giving relationship with the young people in your life, read this book. You'll be grateful you did--and so will the kids you love. -- John O’Leary, host of the Live Inspired podcast and bestselling author of On Fire, John O’Leary, host of the Live Inspired podcast and bestselling author of On Fire

Live Love Now is a gorgeous manual for how to rescue yourself, your family, and your kid from the malaise of modern parenting. You'll tear up as you feel the truth of it and feel relief at having a clear way forward. This is a must-read for all parents. -- Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult, Julie Lythcott-Haims, New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult

Through heartfelt and authentic life experiences, Rachel Macy Stafford shows that adults and children can learn and grow together, and that perfection is not required to raise healthy and capable young adults. Live Love Now will help you become a truth-teller, encourager, and guide to children, helping them find meaning and purpose for themselves instead of trying to fit into roles society tries to nudge them into. In this book, Rachel shares inspiring stories, strategies that value your own experiences, and ways to apply new concepts to the shifting challenges of raising and educating children in a high-pressured world. -- Marilyn Price-Mitchell, PhD, developmental psychologist, author of Tomorrow’s Change Makers, and founder, Roots of Action, Marilyn Price-Mitchell, PhD, developmental psychologist, author of Tomorrow’s Change Makers, and founder, Roots of Action

In Live Love Now, Rachel Macy Stafford provides heartfelt and astute guidance for navigating the places where ourselves and our kids' selves rub up against each other, and she challenges us to put aside our own paradigms--our baggage, if you will--in order to see more clearly the gifts of our children, and to celebrate and nurture those gifts. This is a parenting book like no other you've read. It's a must read for parents of kids of all ages. -- Dr. Shefali Tsabary, clinical psychologist and New York Times bestselling author, Dr. Shefali Tsabary, clinical psychologist and New York Times bestselling author

Rachel's transparent and practical insights inspire us to do just what the title promises: LIVE LOVE NOW. Reading it reminded me, yet again, why hers is one of the most important voices of our day. -- Joshua Becker, founder, Becoming Minimalist, Joshua Becker, founder, Becoming Minimalist

Loving our kids well as they grow up has more to do with who they are than with who we want them to be. While many parenting books counsel us on how we can get our kids to meet our expectations, Rachel Macy Stafford asks us to take a different approach--to see our kids for who they were created to be, lay down our expectations of who we think they need to become, and come alongside them as guides and companions on their unique journeys. -- Amy McCready, founder of PositiveParentingSolutions.com and the author of The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic: A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World, Amy McCready, founder of PositiveParentingSolutions.com and the author of The “Me, Me, Me” Epidemic: A Step-by-Step Guide to Raising Capable, Grateful Kids in an Over-Entitled World

In Live Love Now, Rachel Macy Stafford does what she does best: she lovingly encourages, guides, and challenges us to be better than we've been. Through stories, reflections, and tangible tools rooted in love and solidarity, Rachel helps us find our way through the difficulties of parenting without shaming us in process. Read this book and let its kindness pour over you. Take its lessons and make your world a healthier place. Because of Rachel, I know a better way to love and practice presence is possible. -- Kaitlin B Curtice, author of Glory Happening and Native: Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God, Kaitlin B Curtice, author of Glory Happening and Native: Identity, Belonging and Rediscovering God

We all want to raise confident, resilient teens, but in today's world, it isn't easy. This book has answers, offering guidance to help parents be the anchors and touchstones our teens need to make their way through the sometimes-stormy seas of adolescence. I hope every parent keeps a copy on their nightstand. -- Susan Stiffelman, MFT, author of Parenting with Presence and Parenting without Power Struggles, Susan Stiffelman, MFT, author of Parenting with Presence and Parenting without Power Struggles --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
