“Congratulations! You had a baby! Now what?”


I remember that feeling so well when we brought our firstborn home from the hospital. What now? I’m responsible for this little person. Oh God, how do I raise him for You?!


Can you relate?


Prepare Them to Flourish offers a framework for raising children according to God’s wisdom. It helps you: 

  • Understand why one minute you can feel amazed by how precious your child is and the next he makes you want to pull your hair out 

  • Grasp God’s goal for raising kids

  • Relate to your kids as the authority in the home the way your heavenly Father relates to you

  • See that correction is actually a small part of discipline

  • Prepare your kids to live according to God’s wisdom


There are no guaranteed formulas when raising kids but there are guiding principles. By the end of this short book, you will understand how to create an environment of wisdom and grace in your home that, by the grace of God, can prepare your child to flourish.
