marriage and parenting

A guest blogger on Tim Challies blog recently wrote about attending a marriage seminar by the author of this book. Parenting and marriage it seems are interrelated.

To lift yet another example from Tripp: if my children wake in the wee hours, start to fight, and I respond by stomping down the hall toward their bedroom with the mantra “inconvenience, inconvenience, inconvenience” running through my head, I am reacting sinfully to their sin. Of course, it’s a fact of life that sinners tend to respond sinfully to being sinned against.

Using the Bible Biblically to Parent Biblically

You can check out Tripp's book at Westminster Books. I haven't read it yet but I read a review a few weeks ago and thought it might be helpful.
