The Love Dare for Parents

From the authors of international best-selling marriage book The Love Dare comes The Love Dare for Parents, a 40-day journey of “dares” challenging one or both parents to understand, practice, and communicate Christ-like love to their children.

Easy to read and work into a busy schedule, The Love Dare for Parents is designed to “turn the hearts of parents to their children and turn the hearts of children to their parents” (Malachi 4:6) so that moms and dads can more fully enjoy and delight in their children while maximizing the positive impact they have on their lives long term.
Each day brings a promising key verse from Scripture, a biblical principle about love that applies to parenting, a specific challenge the parent does for the sake of their child, and space to journal thoughts and reflect on what happened that day.
The Love Dare for Parents even includes access to a FREE online parenting assessment, helpfully keyed to select material in the book.

Parents, take the dare!

THE LOVE DARE FOR PARENTS is a book I've been working through with my five children - all at the same time.  There is a test you can take to see where you stand at  I did great, except in one area (Mercy, but I already knew that wasn't my strongest gift.).  I have enjoyed surprising my children with some of the things - random acts of kindness - an unexpected note telling them they are a gift - etc.  And I highly recommend that if you have children you take THE LOVE DARE FOR PARENTS.  I haven't had the pleasure of reading the one for married couples yet, but this one is great. 

If you are a parent, please pick up a copy of THE LOVE DARE FOR PARENTS and put it in action. There are lines for you to record how your children reacted, what you did, just in case you care to do so, and a box to check when the dare is completed. I've notified positive results with my family, especially with my oldest son. Just getting the verbal confirmation that he's special, that he's loved means a lot to him.  

Children are a gift from the Lord! Psalm 127:3.
