Description

"The family you want is possible--and this is the book you need."--Ann Voskamp, New York Times bestselling author of The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

Almost any parent you ask will tell you that they want their children to be happy, successful adults. But many of us forget (or never knew to begin with) that lasting personal joy is not necessarily found the way the world says it is--through reaching a certain socioeconomic status, having a certain job, buying a certain house, or having a certain amount in one's bank account. In fact, personal satisfaction comes not from grabbing on to things but from holding them with an open hand and, very often, giving them away.

In this inspiring book, popular parenting blogger and author Kristen Welch shows parents how to discover for themselves and instill in their kids the profound joy that comes from sharing what we have been given--our time, our talents, and even what's in our wallets--with those who have less. Through powerful personal stories as well as stories from Scripture, Welch offers a tantalizing alternative to status quo parenting that has the power to impact not only our own families but also the entire world.

"As you read these pages, you will not only find guidance in raising children who are world changers, but you will find yourself moved to be a world changer as well!"--Ruth Schwenk, founder of TheBetterMom.com, author of Pressing Pause and For Better or for Kids

"Welch offers parents two things that are sorely lacking in our world today: hope and direction."--Heidi St. John, author, speaker, blogger, and executive director at Firmly Planted Family
