Book Review: Big Picture Parents: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life

Parenting books are a dime a dozen. One look at any bookstore’s parenting section makes me slightly overwhelmed. From feeding your child a sugar-free diet, or ensuring you are raising teens with healthy self-esteem; everyone has advice to give. This is where Aussie Harriet Connor’s new book “Big Picture Parents: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life” (Wipf and Stock, 2017). stands on its own: Connor isn’t trying to share her ideas founded on the latest fad.

Book Review: One Year of Dinner Table Devotions and Discussion Starters

One of my memories of the dinner table growing up is our time spent having family devotions. As a teenager, I remember grumbling over it often, yet now looking back I recognise the beauty in it and am thankful my parents persisted even when my sisters and I were less than encouraging about it. Gathering around God’s Word as a family is not only something we should encourage one another to do, but we should remind each other training our children in the knowledge of God is actually a Biblical mandate. Yet how, in the busyness of life, do...
