Parenting in Christ: Treasure for Parenting from Jesus narrows in on the character and teaching of Jesus. This Bible-centered guide stands out from other Christian parenting books in that it doesn’t present a one-size fits all formula.

It doesn’t cherry pick scriptures to fit a parenting philosophy, but starts with Jesus as the center and source. It encourages parents and care-givers, helping silence their inner critics, and calming their parenting anxieties.

This book inspired me to learn to apply the fruits of the Spirit to share (and model) the love of Christ with my children.  It was grounded in Scripture, and there was also so much real world advice that was incredibly helpful to me.

Parenting in Christ a Jesus Centered Bible Study for Parents

It’s so refreshing to see guidance to parenthood that starts with the heart of Jesus, versus a list of do’s and don’ts. I love how the material here really reminds us as parents how we ought to present this world to our children; it gives us freedom rather than making us feel anxious that we’re doing a bad job.  This study is full of scripture and is intended to point us all (parents and our children) to the heart of Jesus.

Christina does a wonderful job of providing Biblical understanding to the hard job of parenting. I strongly believe that many parents will benefit from this study.
