Book Summary of Grace-Based Parenting by Tim Kimmel


Parenting is tough. Raising children can be quite confusing, especially when each child has their own personality and parenting methods that work for one child don’t work for others. Too often, we resort to parenting strategies that seem best but turn out to be far from God’s intention for raising our children.

God has given parents the vital task of pointing their children to His grace. This is far more than simply reading Bible stories and telling them the gospel. They need security, significance, and strength, and only grace can help them when those needs are threatened.

Grace-based parenting is more than a set of rules or a list of dos and don’ts. Rather, it is a lifestyle of pursuing the grace of God in our own lives as we point our children to the grace of God. There is freedom and love in grace-based homes as we strive to point our children to the ultimate grace-Giver. Grace-based homes allow our children to thrive as they find the freedom to be different, be vulnerable, be candid, and make mistakes.
