I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
Sally Clarkson is one of my favorite “mentors”. Yes, I consider her a mentor even though I’ve never met her in person! Her writing has impacted my mothering more than anything else. If I could choose one woman for busy Mamas to listen to, it’s Sally! Her latest book, “The Life-Giving Parent” is the last in a trilogy of three “Life-Giving” books. This book is actually mainly written by her husband, Clay Clarkson, with small snippets from Sally here and there.

If you’re looking for a parenting book that gives you “10 easy tips”, this isn’t for you. But, if you want to learn principles that will impact the way you parent, give it a shot! I loved hearing from Clay because Sally has spoken so highly of him over the years. It was interesting to hear a father’s perspective on how they shaped the home they did. Clay is a talented writer and he knows his stuff! He explains the meaning of Greek words and how they are relevant to your parenting today in a way that is easy to understand.
I loved this book because it goes deeper than just correcting your child’s behavior. It introduces a long-lasting approach to giving kids a firm foundation of faith, excellence, and love, which in the end will impact them more. This book also focuses on getting your heart right as a parent, because your heart is what your parenting ultimately flows from.
This book takes a bit of concentration, but it is worth mulling over. You’ll be encouraged by this couple who has raised 4 wonderful children of their own in a life-giving environment. Clay and Sally are a wonderful writing team and I hope to see more from both of them!
