Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Book Review & Free Resources: The Christian Parenting Handbook

I just finished reading The Christian Parenting Handbook: 50 Heart-Based Strategies for All the Stages of Your Child's Life, by Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, co-founders of the National Center for Biblical Parenting.  
It's a comprehensive tool for parents of children ages 2-18, with strategies for a heart-based approach to parenting. As the authors say, "Instead of relying on rewards, incentives, threats, and punishment, you'll learn how to identify heart lessons to teach your child and implement them in practical ways."
It is full of practical ideas, great stories, and applicable illustrations for the 50 principles they discussed, such as dealing with emotions, conflict, building strong relationships, correcting, instructing and sett limits.

It's a great resource for parents to read straight through, or to pick up as a reference for specific behavior struggles, or to read as a parenting devotional (absorbing 1 chapter each night).
There is no 'school' for Christian parenting, but if there was, this would be one of the primary textbooks!
