Publisher's Summary

The best-selling classic that helps children thrive today and experience a special future tomorrow. Now revised, updated, and enhanced for a new generation!

Children of every age long for the gift of “the blessing” - the unconditional love and approval that come from a healthy relationship with their parents. This life-changing gift, essential for instilling a deep sense of self-worth and unshakable emotional well-being, contains five essential elements:

  • Meaningful touch
  • A spoken message
  • Attaching high value
  • Picturing a special future
  • An active commitment

Offering solid, practical advice and a fresh perspective on making this gift a bigger part of our families, The Blessing powerfully communicates these biblically based elements as necessary to prepare children for positive future relationships, including their relationship with a loving God. But what if we’ve missed out on the blessing in our own lives? This audio book gives hope for “reversing the curse” and helps listeners find blessing in situations of divorce, death, desertion, adoption, and blended families. New to this updated edition are practical ideas, questions, exercises, and links for online resources - plus practical advice for planning a blessing event for a child, preparing a keepsake blessing, and living out the blessing every day of our lives.

    "Good basic principles but nothing earth shattering"

    This book was an okay read, but I felt like I could have gotten the same information out of a short article. The author used lots of storytelling and reciting of scripture to enforce the elements of the blessing, that to me didn't add much. I was hoping to learn something from the book, but honestly don't feel like I took anything new away from it.

    "LIFE CHANGING!!!! VERY PRACTICAL"

    As a father of four, I believe that this book has given me a lot of insights to be a blessing for my family. The presentation couldn't be better. I am so glad that I got this book.
