Give Them Grace is written by Elyse Fitzpatrick and her daughter, Jessica Thompson. In it Elyse and Jessica apply the beautiful declarations of the gospel to parenting in practical yet paradigm-shifting ways. Get readys to be dazzled by the love of Jesus yourself…and freed from the covenant of works that most parents suffer under. The gospel is for children, too!
What makes Christian parenting distinctly Christian? More pointedly, what would make your parenting different from that of a Mormon or moral athiest? When we witness to adults about our faith we’re careful to tell them that they can’t work their way into heaven, but is that the message we give our children? Do they know what the gospel is? Have they been dazzled by the love of Jesus? Or do they think Christianity is about being “nice” and making Jesus smile? Have they heard the message of the glorious gospel?
