This is not one of those books.
I've seen reviewers call this book honest, practical, biblical, and helpful, and it is all of those things. It is divided into 31 topics and can function as a month-long devotional study. The chapters are short and contain many scripture references as well as practical advice. It can also be read straight-through (as I did). I have no doubt that every parent could find wisdom here applicable to her situation no matter the types of trials her family faces.
But this is not why I love this book, have found it infinitely valuable on first reading, and will return to it again and again. What Amber and Wendy have done for parents is beautiful and far beyond self-help or practical advice. You will not find in this book a message of sticky-sweet guilt accompanied by a list of things to do, quotes to pin on your mirror, and charts to make everything better. What you will find is the gospel, sometimes spoken in brutal honesty, but also in tender grace and humility.
See, the thing that tires me about all of those other books is that I know, to the core of my being, that I cannot just set my mind to be a good mom and make it all come out roses. I am weak, and I am a sinner, and I fail. I can memorize your list of alliterated correct responses to my triggers and somehow call that to mind when it seems like all the world is crumbling around me, but that won't save me, change me, or grow gentleness in me. That is the point of the gospel, and that is on glorious display in this book.
Whether you recognize a struggle with anger in your parenting or not, this book is an excellent resource. I don't know that I have ever read a better display of sanctification in progress. This is how it works. This is how God works- through prayerful repentance, humility, and the power of His Word. I started reading thinking I would pick out a few triggers that apply to me and breeze through the rest of it, but it turned out that every chapter arrested me. These are not easy or flippant answers; no cheerleading; this is truth and I think I can breathe again.
I received a free copy of this book.
I plan on referencing this book in my times of temptation to lose it. I also will recommend it to other parents I know.
