Author: Jim Newheiser

Parents can get lost in the jungle of formulas that compete for our attention, promising success with our children if we just follow certain guidelines. . . .

How do we navigate all the options?

Jim Newheiser teaches us how to discern the value of parenting methods and critique them against God’s Word. Formulas may fail, but be encouraged: the gospel surpasses any formula.
