“Full-time parents look for every opportunity to teach and train their children in the ways of the Lord… They don’t want to let a single opportunity slip by without being able to impart important eternal truths to their child.”
~Israel Wayne, Full-Time Parenting
How much of our day is spent parenting our children? Perhaps not enough. If we want to have lasting relationships with our children, and provide them with a solid, Biblical foundation for adult life, it’s time to embrace full-time parenting.
In Full-Time Parenting, Israel Wayne clearly and simply lays a Biblical foundation for parenthood. He gently encourages each of us to take our roles seriously, asking what God wants for His children. Full-Time Parenting addresses such topics as the father’s role in parenting, child training, the “Perfect Family” Syndrome, techno parenting, and more.
We found Full-Time Parenting, to be honest, spectacular! Israel Wayne does an incredible job of laying Biblical groundwork for every chapter covered. He constantly seeks to edify the reader; always encouraging parents to seek God’s will. Full-Time Parenting is engaging, thought-provoking, and to the point. Every chapter a blessing from beginning to end.
There were a few sections which especially caught our attention. “Hospitality: It’s Not Just for Women Anymore” was an interesting chapter and sparked quite a bit of conversation. “A Christian Education Manifesto” was amazing. Scripture, Scripture, and more Scripture encouraging parents to carefully consider their children’s education. “Why Some Children Leave The Faith” was an apt warning in today’s society.
Don’t be fooled. While Mr. Wayne does an excellent job of presenting God’s view of full-time parenting, there is nothing easy about what God is calling us to. In fact, being a full-time parent is going to be the toughest job you will ever have. But, God is good. He doesn’t expect perfection. He only expects us to give it our all.
Join us in the incredible adventure of full-time parenting. Prayerfully ask the Lord to show you what He wants of your family, spend dedicated time in the Word seeking His face, read Full-Time Parenting, and allow the Lord to do a mighty work in your home.
“Whether you are a single parent or a faithful Bible-teaching, patriarchal leader of your home, it isn’t ultimately about you. It’s all about God and His marvelous grace. Throw yourself on the merits of Christ and watch in amazement what He can do in and through you and your family.”
