Book Review – Raising Big Kids with Supernatural Love

It is so refreshing to read a book that speaks to the challenge of ministering to our Big Kids – our Teens and Tweens.  There are so many choices that lay before us as we parent in this stage, sometimes we can feel lost and frustrated.

Lori Wildenberg and Becky Danielson help us find our way as they take us on a Love Walk through  1 Corinthians 13, in Raising Big Kids with Supernatural Love.   

Each chapter highlights a different aspect of this passage and is packed with realistic ideas that will spur us on as we minister to our Big Kids.  We learn to open our eyes to the red flags, take a good long looks into our parenting mirrors, and glean from Lori and Becky’s parenting experiences.

If I had to pick a favorite chapter I would say, Choosing Goodness.  As parents we often see our children through rose colored glasses, choosing to not see their struggle against sin.  The truth is we must see their sin, so we can effectively pray.

In this chapter we take a look at Seven Deadly Sins our kids can face and counter them using the Replacement Technique.  We pray a replacement prayer, praying Godly attributes over our children.  Then we purpose to seek out opportunities to train our Big Kids in these areas.

Ministering to our teens will come with trials.  Lori and Becky encourage us with these words –  Wait with expectancy and tenacity, knowing that God has a firm grip on you.
