Actually Dave Stone is very clear at the beginning of Raising Your Kids to Love the Lord that it is not an instruction manual. Your only instruction manual for raising your kids is the B-I-B-L-E. However Mr. Stone does a fabulous job of reaffirming us Christian parents and giving us practical guidance as we steer our little ones to following the Lord. His advice goes all the way up to grown up children so no matter what the age of your offspring, this book is for you!
I love the advice in this small book. He speaks directly to moms and directly to dads and to both together. His essential advice is the essential key: LIVE IT OUT. Your children aren't going to "do as I say, not as I do." Truly they are not. Follow the Lord and the Bible to your best ability and so will they. For help along the way turn to this books and books like this. I love keeping this on my nightstand because at the end of the day, when nothing has gone right, and I couldn't wait until bedtime arrived, I can pick it up and read a few pages for affirmation and for a little fuel to face the day tomorrow.
Your kids are precious, your time with them is limited, remember how to make it count.
