When children enter your life, one thing immediately comes to mind: things would probably go much more smoothly if they came with an owner's manual. And for those who want their children to follow God and live a godly life, some extra help might be nice to help counter the negative influences children will face every day.
Author Jessie Adams can help. In A Guide to the Spiritual Development of Children: Seventeen Subjects Every Christian Parent Needs to Focus Upon, he shares the knowledge he developed in a decade of ministering at his church and counseling young people and their families. Parents will learn how to talk with their children about subjects such as love, discipline, society, prayer, finances, and the justice system. Extensive scriptural passages provide additional guidance and inspiration.
A Guide to the Spiritual Development of Children: Seventeen Subjects Every Christian Parent Needs to Focus Upon will guide parents as they strive to take their rightful place as the leader in their children's development.
"I wish I had the Lord Jesus Christ, the church and this book twenty-two years ago when I started raising my children"

"The familiar saying of 'Home is where the heart is' is more than a good proverb. It reveals that the home is a place where God has called parents to raise Godly children. Upon reading The Guide for the Spiritual Development of Children by Jessie Adams, the principles he hits upon lead right to the heart of the home of how parents can pass the test of being and becoming Godly examples to their children by being the primary catalyst to their spiritual development. The Biblical principles which are given in this book can encourage, exhort, and equip any parent in training up Godly children who will make an eternal impact in the lives of their own children in the future. I highly recommend this book to any parent or parent-to-be as a powerful tool in helping them raise Godly children."
