Product Description

Raising kids is the most important thing you'll ever do.

Parents in our post-modern world tend to be committed to but anxious about their child-rearing responsibilities. They've tried the countless parenting books on the market, but many of these are strident, fear-based books that loving parents instinctively reject, while still searching for direction.

Now Dr. Tim Kimmel, founder of Family Matters ministries, offers a refreshing new look at parenting. Rejecting rigid rules and checklists that don't work, Dr. Kimmel recommends a parenting style that mirrors God's love, reflects His forgiveness, and displaces fear as a motivator for behavior. As we embrace the grace God offers, we begin to give it-creating a solid foundation for growing morally strong and spiritually motivated children.

Releasing in an affordable trade paper edition, this revolutionary book presents a whole new way to nurture a healthy family.


"God gives us His grace—and each of us needs it. we also need to extend that gift to our children. Tim's many years of experience in grace-based parenting—both with his own family and teaching others—will help you give hope to your children." - Dennis Rainey, President of FamilyLife

Tim Kimmel is a master of the wild and wooly world of parenting. He has been a light to my family reminding us that of all things to remember and to embrace—parents and children are equally in need of the glorious grace of God. Tim and Darcy are amazing parents—sweet and strong and king and bold. They write with humor, hope, and an honesty that allows us all to let down our guard and allow God to meet us in our fears and regrets. This superb book will invite you to see the privilege we have as parents to be conformed to Christ through our own children." - Dan B. Allender, Ph.D.

I had the great fortune to stumble upon Mrs. Dierks wonderful book 'Granny Camp' and I LOVED IT! It has made me look forward to this summer when I will be starting my own 'granny camp' with my grandchildren. Mrs. Dierks shows you step by step how you can create wonderful memories for you and your family. She does it with great fun and fan-fare! I loved the fact that she included menus and activities, as well photos. There isn't another book out there that will inspire you to have the time of your life - with your own grandkids! Granny Camp is where its at!

Tim's book taught me to settle down and not be so controlling with every little thing. Kids need time and space to learn some of the hard lessons of life and this book encouraged me to love them first, and teach them second.
