Author and evangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes sends a message to parents in "Promises From God or Parents" (Berkley, $21), an essential handbook for navigating the emotional and complex path of being a parent in today's ever-changing world.
"Promises From God for Parents" is a collection of empowering wisdom and scriptural verse for parents in need of divine inspiration and guidance for raising a spiritually healthy family.
Parents have concerns about their role in shaping their child's future. They struggle with issues of discipline, health and education and financial adversity, or how best to teach their child time-honored values and rewards of mutual respect. Now, with specially selected Bible verses and passages to illustrate his insights, Jakes guides readers through the joys, challenges, rewards and difficulties of being a parent.
He highlights topics such as tough love, self-control, patience, respect and forgiveness, illustrating how both you and your family can achieve a stronger relationship with God.
