Parenting is discipleship. Your child is learning from you. You are the teacher and far more is caught than taught in parenting. As parents, we need to fundamentally change our hearts and minds first. That simply MUST happen before any change will come for our offspring. This book is based on real world experience and rooted in biblical principles.

Most parents want a book that will “fix their child” in three easy steps, in 30 days or less. While understandable, this expectation will never work. The problem lies far more with us, the parents, than it does with our child. If we don’t understand that truth, we will only remain frustrated and disappointed with our child. The far greater need is to fundamentally change our own hearts and minds as parents. As a principle, that simply MUST happen before any change will come for our youth.

Christian parents may know a lot of Bible verses, yet don’t have a Biblical theology of parenting. Here’s the big picture: parenting is discipleship.

Your child is learning from you. You are the teacher. Far more is caught than taught in parenting. Children listen to what you say, but they watch how you live. When you are slack in dealing with character issues in your own life, it short circuits your ability to effectively reach your child’s heart. In Raising Them Up, you will discover:

  • A heart check for parents
  • The world of “techno-parenting”
  • How to teach purity
  • Helping the difficult child
  • Parenting by grace
  • Home-based apologetics and more!

It’s not about gimmicks…it’s about God – His inspired, inerrant, infallible, timeless truths.

There are lots of other books out there that will teach you how to count to three, hold your breath, snap your wrist with a rubber band, and hand out stickers as a way to change your rebellious child. With enough tips, tricks, and methods, perhaps you can learn the perfect approach to timeouts or some magic cure that will solve bickering, sibling rivalry, laziness, back-talking, media addiction, lying, stealing, bad attitudes, apathy, angry outbursts, rebellion, inattention, or any other number of “fruits” that annoy, inconvenience, and embarrass us.

But if you care enough to risk having to make changes in your own way of thinking and living, then let’s walk together on this path of learning to powerfully and prayerfully parent our children after the ways of God.

Great Information
Review by Amy
This book has some great information on raising kids. I love how everything is backed by the bible.
Must Have
Review by April
Really encouraging book, a must have for parents. As a parent to young children, this has so much great information and insight. The style of writing is really great; engaging, informational, and not at all condescending (as sometimes parenting books can be). Definitely one to add to your collection.
Must read for all parents
Review by Love2BeMom
Israel Wayne is a great author with a lot of wisdom and experience parenting and home educating their 10 children.
This book is not just a list of methods and tips to modify your child’s behaviour but it focusses on training your child’s heart, starting with a change in the parents’ hearts, minds and character. Chapter after chapter is packed with parenting instructions and ideas from the revealed Word of God.
I particularly enjoyed and appreciate his insight in the chapter on technology. The facts and advice given were an eye opener for me. He covers a broad range of topics, teaching purity to children, the power of influence, different chapters on parenting and discipline, why some children leave the faith and so much more.
I highly suggest this book to all parents and young adults who plan to start a family!
Love it
Review by Yulia
I love that the author based this book on Bible vs just some great techniques from psychology (even though I am not against them). I have been looking for this kind of book that would help to understand how to raise kids and to build them up, but still that it would be according to the Bible standards, not worldly standards, and I think this book is exactly what I was looking for.

The author talks about many relevant issues which we are facing now in our real world. It is such an eye opener about many issues and finally helped me to understand when is the time to have healthy control over my kids and when is the time to influence them. There is a lot of practical and truly helpful advice.

Israel Wayne helps to see some issues which we may bypass. He discusses them openly in a very helpful and edifying way. I also like that this book is written in such way that it can be read easily by fathers and mothers. We need books like this, so both genders can be reached and helped in raising the kids. I am truly grateful for this wonderful resource.

I also got the download, and it works wonderfully on my e-reader.
