Book Summary of The Lifegiving Parent by Clay & Sally Clarkson


There’s a flood of parenting and self-help books on the market today, each promising success to parents faithfully utilizing their specific methodology. The Lifegiving Parent is not one of them. Instead, it provides eight fundamental principles — heartbeats of lifegiving parenting — to enable parents to bring the life of Christ into their homes. “The goal of this book is very simple: to inspire and encourage you to become a lifegiving parent who invites the living God of eternity into your home and family.” (p. xix)

Lifegiving parenting is countercultural, and imparting God’s life to our children is of critical importance. The world changes around us, competing for the minds and hearts of our children. God gives us everything we need to stand against the onslaught and to thrive and grow in Christ Jesus. The Lifegiving Parent encourages us to number our children’s days, to nurture their spirits, and to guard their hearts. It gives us principles to renew their minds, strengthen their faith, and shape their will. Character and imagination also play an essential role. “Lifegiving parenting will help you and your children to find yourselves in God’s epic story—and to live the story He is writing through and for you.” (p. xiv)
