Contents
Parenting does not have to be this hard -- Myth 1. Having children makes you happy and fulfilled : discovering God's real purpose in giving us children -- Myth 2. Nurturing children is natural and instinctive : why biblical love is so difficult to live out -- Myth 3. Parenting is your highest calling : how pursuing God first frees us to love our children more -- Myth 4. Good parenting leads to happy children : exchanging shallow hopes for God's deeper purposes -- Myth 5. If you find parenting difficult, you must not be following the right plan : learning to rely on God rather than formulas -- Myth 6. You represent Jesus to your children : how we trap ourselves in a role we weren't meant to play -- Myth 7. You will always feel unconditional love for your children : how our false ideas of love burden us with guilt -- Myth 8. Successful parents produce godly children : the danger of making too much of ourselves and too little of God -- Myth 9. God approves of only one family design : why God is not limited by imperfect families -- The holy enterprise of parenting
