Author - Tedd & Margy Tripp
From interaction with friends to instructions received at home, children interpret their experiences from their worldview that seeks to answer fundamental questions like “Who am I?” “What do I exist for?” and “Where can I find lasting happiness?” As parents we therefore need to provide our children with consistent, persuasive, biblical answers for understanding God, the world, and their place in it.
Instructing a Child’s Heart is essential to help you inform their minds and persuade their hearts about the wisdom and truthfulness of God’s ways. Learn how to impress truth on the hearts of your children, not to control or manage them, but to point them to the greatest happiness that they can experience—delighting in God and the goodness of his ways!
“Biblical. Practical. Pastoral. This insightful book on godly childrearing is everything we would expect from the author who brought us Shepherding a Child’s Heart. Its tremendous value comes from the fact that it centers on the essential but often neglected heart of biblical parenting: the gospel of grace. I am glad to recommend it.”
—John MacArthur, Pastor-teacher, Grace Community Church
“The Tripp’s have once again written a book that will shape our children’s parenting style and will have a direct impact on our grandchildren. “Instructing a Child’s Heart” will help them avoid all the behavioristic manipulation and threatenings that sadly marked our parenting and is seen so frequently in our churches. I heartily recommend it.”
