Hi! Welcome to Gentle Christian Parenting. This site is dedicated to providing information to parents about how to raise children who love Jesus. It’s called Gentle Christian Parenting because we believe this quality of Christ, fruit of the Spirit, and command of scripture has been far too overlooked in recent years.
Our blog is for Christian moms and dad who are looking to center their families around Jesus. We believe all scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, correcting, and training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). More importantly, we believe that all of scripture is intended to lead us to the person of Christ.
Christina Dronen, is the primary author behind our Christian parenting blog. She is a mom of 3 and author of multiple Bible study discussion guides on parenting.

What We Believe
We believe successful Christian parenting is centered on Jesus – not the parents, not the kids, and not the pressures of the surrounding culture. Honestly, this blog is counter-cultural. We aren’t mainstream and we aren’t out there rehashing old axioms and philosophies.
We start with the foundation that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the model of how we are all called to live and engage with each other. For parents, this means we pull the plank out of our eyes, before trying to pull the splinter out of our children’s eyes.
Following Jesus means that we don’t tell our children “Do as I say and not as I do.” Instead, we live in a way that allows us to say along with the apostle Paul, “Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ” (I Corinthians 1:11).
Please join us on this journey to discover what it means to parent in Christ. Our goal is to inspire and encourage, not to dole out rule and formulas.
