ARC Arrival: How To Raise a Modern Day Joseph

How to Raise a Modern Day Joseph by Linda Massey Weddle

Publisher: David C. Cook

I received this book for a First Wild Card Tour June 29th.

About the book: As parents, we strive to help our kids grow into their full potential. We help them with their homework, enroll them in activities, and invest for their college education. But while we may plan for their success, we can overlook a vital part of their personal development: nurturing and encouraging a solid foundation of faith.

We can easily assume our children are growing spiritually in church youth groups and programs, but the Bible calls us to guide them in their relationship with Jesus.

The life of Joseph offers parents a biblical standard for building children of character. Drawing from his story, this book will help you do just that. Inside, you'll find a unique guide for creating a personalized plan for your child's spiritual growth, from preschool through high school. This practical guide will help your child:
  • Respect the awesomeness of God
  • Acquire wisdom from the Bible
  • Understand God's grace
  • Gain a sense of destiny and purpose
  • Develop a life perspective based on God's perfect plan
The result: children and teenagers who know, love, and serve the Lord. So invest in their spiritual development. And create a legacy of faith that will last a lifetime. (from the back cover)

About the author: Linda Massey Weddle is a children's author, and her more than two thousand articles and short stories have been published by publications such as Women's Day and Christian Parenting Today. She develops Bible-based curriculum for young people and has been involved in children's and youth ministry for the past forty years.

Thanks for sharing about Modern-Day Joseph. My prayer is that the tips in my book will help parents and churches work together to raise kids who know, love and serve the Lord.
