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!

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.

This book will challenge you to rethink the way you have been taught to treat people and most of all your kids. It is a must read for all families and anyone in between.

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

Wow! I want to love my kids just like God!

This book teaches us that disciplining our children can be done in a loving way that will encourage obedience rather than rebellion. There is so much to this book that I'll need to listen to it over and over again just to make sure it all sinks in!
