Publisher's Summary

Children of every age long for the gift of The Blessing - the unconditional love and approval that comes from a healthy relationship with their parents.

This life-changing gift for Christian parents and their children, 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.

New to this updated edition are:

  • Giving The Blessing to others in your circle of influence,
  • Practical application tools and stories of how this is lived out,
  • Insight and help for those who didn’t receive The Blessing,
  • And how to create a lifestyle of blessing others. 

Dive deeper into The Blessing with interactive exercises and discussion questions available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A MUST read! I loved this book

I loved this book! Not only was the content great, but I loved the Pause and Process conversations with the authors at the end of each chapter. It made it easy to start applying what I learned right away - even if I was listening while I was driving or doing the dishes. I would recommend this book for anyone - not just parents. And I loved all of the practicals they provided as well. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!

This is a life changing book! If everyone read this book and put it’s principles into practice it would change our world. I am so thankful it is available on Audible, which is how I do my reading. I received an amazing blessing just in reading this book!
