Gospel-Based Parenting: A Biblical Study on Discipline and Discipling

As Christian parents, we strive to apply God's word in all areas of our lives, but what if we have been misinterpreting His word this entire time? In Gospel-Based Parenting, we will: (1) look deeply into our own hearts and honestly reflect on our practice as parents, (2) look deeply into the Word of God and examine our cultural biases and preconceived ideas that have impacted our interpretation of His Word, and (3) look deeply into the heart of God as our Heavenly Father and be transformed by the gift of grace that He has freely given to us through Jesus Christ. Each chapter includes a list of discussion questions that can be used with your spouse, your small group, or your church. May our lives and our parenting be transformed by the Gospel of God's amazing grace.

Childhood discipline is your responsibility. As a Christian parent, you know your children need you to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” The Bible is clear about what you should do. But what about how you should do it? The way you answer will shape how your children remember your parenting and family.

Heartfelt Discipline contends there is no divine “how to” formula for childhood discipline. Rather, there is a “way.” It’s the way of life, the path we walk with God. It’s about faith, grace, freedom, and heart, expressed in three principles of discipline as you walk the path with your children:

Direction: Guiding and showing them how to walk on the path with God
Correction Getting them back on the path when sin leads them off of it
Protection: Guarding them from temptations that could draw them away

In Heartfelt Discipline Clay Clarkson helps you understand what the Bible really says about childhood discipline. Drawing on thirty years of parenting and his personal study of the Bible, Clay fully fleshes out God’s way of “path of life parenting.” It will change how you think about childhood discipline, and put you on the path of life to your child’s heart.
