Parents and children need help, a lot of help. They need help from the One who is perfect, who understands our need, and who can really help us, God himself. And because of that, the most important relationship in your family is not with your child, it is not with your spouse, it is your relationship with Him. That's the relationship The Faithful Parent emphasizes. Martha Peace, best-selling author of 'The Excellent Wife', and Stuart Scott, author of its counterpart, 'The Exemplary Husband', join forces to challenge you to become a faithful parent, one who perseveres and leaves the results to God.-- Publisher.
