Parenting the Wholehearted Child reveals what happens when parents surrender their grip on perfection and performance and free fall into the arms of grace.
This book helps parents give their kids the one thing they need more than anything else : the knowledge that they are fully known and fully loved by God. A parent who experienc-es God’s heart is equipped to reflect God’s heart—a heart of grace, forgiveness, and un-conditional love—to their kids.
With vulnerability, conviction, and a lively sense of self-effacing humor, Cunnion guides parents on a transformative journey into raising not perfect but wholehearted children—children who live out of the knowledge that they are wholeheartedly and unconditional-ly loved (and liked !) by Jesus Christ.
Woven like a golden thread throughout the book is God’s radical grace, reminding parents that the best thing they can do for their children is teach them what Jesus has already done for them.
