10 Must Have Books for Christian Parenting 

Check out the top 10 must have books for Christian parenting!

One of the best things about living in this day and age is the wealth of books available to us. Even with just a click of a button and we can have a Kindle book on our iPad in the matter of seconds. I love to read and finding books that help me and inspire me to be a better version of myself are my kind of books. I love gleaning the knowledge from those who have walked before me and applying it to my life.

Parenting is hard work. We need all the help, guidance and wisdom out there. With the number of parenting books out there, finding a parenting book with Jesus at the center can be a challenge. I hope to make that easier for you today!

    Hi Ana. Thanks for sharing these resources. I wanted to ask if there was any you could recommend for parenting teenagers or is there one among these?
    Many thanks, do have a super blessed day!

      Ugochi, most of the books on this list help deal with teenagers even if the title doesn’t say so – Shepherding a Child’s Heart for example. My pastor couldn’t give me a teen specific book to add but he said if someone is dealing with a troubled teen then he highly recommended How to Win the Heart of a Rebel by Davis. I hope that helps!

    What a great list! I’ve read several of those books and I found that they were very helpful. One I would add is Motivate Your Child. I found that to be a great resource!

    Hi, Anastacia. I’m Sara from the Christian Blogger’s FB group. Just stopped to share your post and noticed you don’t have your Share Plugin customized.
    Currently, it is set to default follow Shareaholic. If you go into settings, you can customize it to your social channels. That way when someone shares your post, they get a nice invite to follow you.

    How do I know this… Someone pointed it out to me too. ^_^

    Enjoy your evening,

    Sara @SaraDuggan.me

      Thank you Sara! It was set up that way but when we had to reinstall the plugin we must’ve forgotten to change that setting, it should be all set. Thanks for the heads up, I do appreciate it. 🙂
