Plenty of parenting books focus on how to fix bad behavior. Not so many focus on how to cultivate a child's heart. Even fewer focus on how to deal with our own hearts as parents.
My First Second & Third Attempts at Parenting is not a how-to book. It's a collection of stories and reflections designed to help you discover the elusive yet most important part of parenting: the heart. Chapter by chapter story by story we will examine God's heart toward children and our hearts as parents as well as how we can prepare our children's hearts to know and love their heavenly Father.
