Grace and Truth {May 13}

As parents, we need to find ways to encourage our children towards good behavior while keeping their hearts at the same time. We need to have an understanding of their development so we can have patience and live with them in an understanding way.
— Valerie

This week's feature for Grace and Truth is by Valerie, of Cord of 6.  She wrote a post called Strategies to Help You Keep Your Child's Heart.  In this post, Valerie reviews some of the key points from Melanie Redd's new book called, How To Win Your Child's Heart for Life.  There's also a chance to win your own paperback copy of the book.  I've read the book and I highly recommend it.  Valerie has her own sweet story to share in this featured post, a story that illustrates the importance of keeping your child's heart.  I encourage you to go check it out (and enter her drawing).

You can also find Valerie on Facebook, here.
