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.
