Have you ever felt overwhelmed by feelings of guilt, fear, and confusion as a parent? I certainly have. That’s why, five years ago, I started out on a personal quest to discover what the wisdom of my ancestors – the Bible – had to say to parents like me. I went looking for little pieces of grandmotherly advice, but what I found was something much greater. As I read the Bible, I realised that what modern parents need most is not more advice, but a “big picture” – a framework for making sense of both life and parenthood.
I invite you to join me in stepping back from all the “shoulds and shouldn’ts” of modern parenting to consider the bigger questions.
