Review of ‘Big Picture Parents’ on Thinking of God


“This is a wonderful resource that I wished I had when I was starting out my parenting journey and it is a book I am definitely buying for my younger sister and her husband who are about to begin theirs. Whether you are a seasoned parent, a single wanting to support those in your church family or a soon-to-be parent, I would highly recommend this book for a Biblical, big-picture approach to parenting.”
