On Our Shelves Now
There's no doubt that your parenting role changes drastically when your kids become adults. You are deeply invested in and affected by your adult children's choices. Parents whose children choose difficult--even seemingly wrong--paths deal with heartache, disappointment, and the danger of strained or severed relationships. You need a robust theology for long-term parenting gleaned from the discipleship model Jesus exemplified, one that will carefully and thoughtfully apply his way of expressing love.
Mary DeMuth has written a gracious, practical resource for wisely navigating the rocky terrain of family conflict. In this book, Mary will help you gain a better understanding of your new parental role, find reassurance that you are not alone, develop practical ways to move forward, and discover a clear path for growing in your own spiritual maturity during this phase of parenting.
Leaning on the truths of 1 Corinthians 13--the "love" chapter--the book reveals that your changing role is not the end of joy. It is an invitation for spiritual growth and a path toward fulfilling relationships with your adult children.
