Another motivational parenting book bites the dust. This was no better than the last that I read (Mission-Minded Family). It was just OK. I feel like both books, but especially this one, were motivated and driven by STORIES. This book is chock full of them, narrative after narrative of people who are out there seizing the day and changing the world. OK. That can be motivational. But the whole book sort of revolved around the stories, not the GOSPEL, which is what I want to be chiefly motivated b...more
As a parent of 7 children, the world can be a scary place. Knowing that I won't always be able to protect them but that at some point they will be making choices on their own - have their dad and I given them the tools they need to stand on their own two feet? I appreciate a good solid book that can help me as a parent in that aspect. This book does that.

Julie Ferwerda has put together a book that inspired me, motivated me and made me start thinking about what I can do to not only change my own...more
Will the world change your children? Or will your children change the world?

Three quotes that best summarize this book:
"I don't want children who are just productive members of society. I don't want to encourage my kids to strive after mere happiness either. In the short window of opportunity I have to impact their lives, I want to raise spiritually fulfilled kids who are productive members of eternity." p146

"It's rejecting the status quo of settling into the patterns of this world and asking ou...more

This is an awesome book that will both challenge and inspire you. Julie does a wonderful job of casting a vision for Kingdom purpose living and discipling of our children. She gives great examples of families who have done a wonderful job in raising their children to live out the mission of Christ and how these kids are doing great things to affect their world. It's a must read...the only criticism of the book I can offer is that the author is somewhat repetitive at times..but perhaps that is du...more
Really enjoyed this book. Rather than being guilt-inducing or overwhelming, it was very inspiring and full of examples and practical and doable ideas to pick and choose from. Encourages you to stop and take a long hard think about what exactly is your goal and your purpose in raising your kids. What do you really want for them in this life? Will be keeping this one to refer back to. Great resource.

A discussion of the importance of raising your kids to be outward focused. The desire is to let them spread their winds early for the Lord, so that they understand the benefits of living for God. This teaching is not so much a verbal direction, but needs to also be seen by our kids in our own lives. We need to be living out what we're directing them to do.
This book had some great thoughts to contemplate as I strive to raise my children to be the people the Lord needs them to be. Much of the book seems to be repetition so I skimmed a large portion of the second half.
A life changing book if you have a heart for missions and/or orphans and want to raise children to be strong "arrows." Wow- I could not put this book down and shed many tears in the process!
Great book about raising mission-minded children. Very inspiring to look outside of ourselves and focus on living to help others.
Lori Lindgren
Good, but didn't quite agree with all of the author's opinions.
So inspiring to raise chilren for His mission!
EVERY Christian parent should read this book!
