‘Big Picture Parents’ Shortlisted


I am excited to announce that my book, Big Picture Parents: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life, has been shortlisted for the 2017 Australian Christian Book of the Year Award. Winners will be announced on August 17th.

You can see the full shortlist here.

My book offers modern parents the opportunity to step back from all the parenting “shoulds and shouldn’ts” and reflect on the bigger questions of what being a parent is all about.

Here’s what people are saying about Big Picture Parents:

“When I first became a parent, I was overwhelmed by all the advice, articles, routines, blogs and down right commercialism that preys on a new parent’s fears. ‘Big Picture Parents’ is the antidote to ALL of that.

Beginning by reassuring parents that we will indeed not scar our children for life if we make a mistake, it goes on to assure us we will make mistakes, because we live in a fallen world. Teaching our children forgiveness and grace in this fallen world, along with our other Christian heritage and values is more important than all the other sleep/feeding/education decisions we make for our children everyday.

As we anticipate the birth of our second child, literally any day now, I am excited to face this new crazy time with peace and contentment knowing my real priorities and that God is in control.”


“Thank you for writing this book!! I read this months ago but its message has stayed clearly with me, encouraging me and spurring me on to keep a godly perspective in my role as a parent.

This book has helped me step back, relax in God’s provision, and focus and put more energy in what really matters. I absolutely LOVE how the author went about writing this book too – going systematically through the Bible from beginning to end to find it’s teaching, wisdom and focus on the topic of parenting. ”
