Synopsis

As children grow and experience life, they face "giants" in many forms--the hurts, struggles, fears and temptations of the world that seduce countless young people away from their divine call to represent Jesus in both purity and power. It is vital for parents to train children to defeat these giants--to become giant-killers. 

With honesty, humor, and keen biblical insight, bestselling authors Bill and Beni Johnson help you discover the keys to successful parenting in God's kingdom. "Parents, we rule for the purpose of protection, but we also serve with the purpose of empowering," they write. "We want to release our children into their destiny--that's the privilege of parenting."

In these pages you will gain the wisdom, kingdom concepts, and practical tools you need to help raise your children to their best.

You'll discover how to parent to their uniqueness, gifts, and strengths, as well as how you can demonstrate and reveal who God is to your kids. The authors also address pressing issues parents face today, including how to

  • be fully engaged in hearing what the Lord is saying over each child
  • maintain relationship and discipline
  • develop character
  • train your children for worship
  • fan the flame of what God has put in their hearts
  • and more

No matter what age your kids are, you have an incredible opportunity to shape their hearts, minds, and values. Here is everything you need to help your children walk into the destiny of their lives and see them become the awesome people they were created to be.

 

I read this book last year because I loved the purpose. We look to not just survive as parents but to grow confident and bold children, who know their God, their purpose and who believe they can change the world. We try to parent with the end in mind, looking to the adults we hope they will become.

Some notes from the book that I took:

God's kind of leaders lead best when they live conscious of the following facts:

  • Nothing is impossible
  • God is very personal and is aware of our thoughts and intents
  • We are not God
  • God is not under our control
  • All of us will give an account to God for our lives

 

If he did not learn to use the weapons himself, he would have to depend on the help of others to be okay. The four weapons are these:

  1. The blood of Jesus
  2. The Word of God
  3. The name of Jesus
  4. Praise
