Discover a grace-filled, gospel-centered approach to parenting with this book by mother/daughter team Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson. In their desire to raise godly children, Christian parents can drift toward rule-centered discipline. There is, however, a far more effective method—a grace-motivated approach that begins with the glorious truth of God’s love for sinners.
In Give Them Grace, parents will learn how to connect the benefits of the cross—especially regeneration, adoption, and justification—to their children’s daily lives. Chapters address topics such as our inability to follow the law perfectly, God’s forgiveness and love displayed at the cross, and what true heart obedience looks like. Fitzpatrick and Thompson also discuss discipline, dealing with popular culture, and evangelism as a way of life.
It is so encouraging to read a parenting book that points parents to the grace of the cross and shows them how to be instruments of that grace in the lives of their children.

Grace for both parents and children flows through the pages of this book; I only wish I had read it at the beginning of my parenting instead of the end.
—Rose Marie Miller, author, From Fear to Freedom
A lot of books talk about gospel-centeredness in theory; this book shows you how to apply it to one of life’s most important relationships.
