Big Picture Parents, Ancient wisdom for Modern Life
“The reality of of life in this fallen world makes being a parent very difficult....our own mistakes and shortcomings can make us feel incredibly guilty and afraid of damaging our children.”
This book started as a personal project, at a time when routines of their daily lives seemed insignificant and disappointing. Harriet Connor and her husband, Daniel, felt they were drifting in a flimsy boat, tossed about by the sea of parenting ‘dos and don’ts’ the day their son came into the world. Having had previous jobs involving caring for or teaching children didn’t help in giving her confidence when she became a mother herself.
In her desperate search for answers, Harriot Connor turned to the Bible. Instead of finding little pieces of grandmotherly advice, what she found was a grand vision - a big picture. She invites you to step back and consider:
What is the purpose of life and parenthood?
What are our family values and how do we pass them on?
How can we cope with our guilt and fear?
Whether you are new to the Bible or have read it before, new or experienced parents, you will not regret taking time to read this book.
