Raising Kingdom Kids
by Tony Evans

When you first find out that you’re pregnant, you read everything you can get your hands on about how to care for your baby while that baby is still on the inside! Parenting while your baby is in utero is the easy part! When your baby is on the outside, it is totally different! You struggle to find the time to read anything, let alone a book about parenting.

Age of Opportunity: A Biblical Guide to Parenting Teens
by Paul David Tripp

Aside from the Bible itself, this is one of the best parenting books I have read. Tripp champions parents to engage the amazing season of opportunity to equip their students in real faith. Upon a foundation of Scripture, Tripp points out both the why and the how. Challenging and encouraging, this book meets you in the trenches and gives you the hope and wisdom of Christ-centered parenting.
