Publisher's Summary

You can raise good kids!

Loving Our Kids on Purpose combines the principles of the Kingdom of God and revival to form a powerful strategy for parents.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. (2 Corinthians 3:17). Rather than the traditional approaches that train children to learn to accept being controlled by well-meaning parents and adults, this book teaches parents how to train children to manage their freedoms and protect their important heart-to-heart relationships.

Children were designed with the core need of freedom. To deny this or live ignorant of it eventually destroys the trust connection between parent and child.

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.(1 John 4:18 NKJV).

Loving Our Kids on Purpose introduces paradigms, perceptions, skills, and ideas that will help parents reduce fear by eliminating the tool of punishment, and strengthening the core character of their children by empowering their self-control and value for their relationship with their parents.

Life Changing

I would recommend this book to everyone raising children ... My prayer is for the Lord to ingrain into my brain these truths that I have missed all these years ... I have so messed up this parenting thing in so many ways ...with all of my good intentions!!! I have been parenting out of pure fear ... thinking that I could control behavior! Fear of failure ....I have failed miserably ...
Lord change ME, open my eyes to your Perfect Love - help me to know your love in my heart so that I can LOVE my kids on purpose!!!
Thank you for sharing these pearls of wisdom & truths!

Thank you

This book gives me more understanding on how to raise and approach my child. After listening to this book, I rarely yelled at my child as before. I now realized what I’ve been missing. Thank you.

Just what God ordered

My only child and I have been at odds since she turned 1 she is now 11 .. she is my mini me at to say that we butt heads is an understatement. I’ve listen to this book off and on for at least two years. I am re-listening to it and every time I hear it I hear something new as well as the Holy Spirit showing me my faults. I have been the yellow truck.! This is how I ruled our home .. I repent and laugh and often cry as the Lord gently shows me my mistakes in parenting my one and only child. I’m also thankful that she is only 11 and there is time left to heal the places I’ve damaged! All glory to God!!

Every parent should have this. Amazing revelations

The most amazing gift from God is not Jesus Christ but the freedom to choose Him or not. This book empowers both parents and kids to choose. In a fear-based world, we are able to shine with love-based parenting.

parenting skills

At first I wasn't sure about his parenting methods but as I have been doing them (mind you its only 3 days) there has been overwhelming peace. I'm not yelling and my children are having to take responsibility. I was raised by a yelling and overpowering mother and wanted different for ny kids but didn't know another way without the yelling. It so makes sense, I didn't like my boss who was a yeller and angry, but a boss that treats me well but I also know that I will have a consequence if I don't get my job done, thats the one I work harder for, respect and love to work for. Thank you Danny for something different and Biblically based
