I just wanted to mention a new favorite parenting book of mine that you might not have heard of. It's called "Don't Make Me Count to Three" by Ginger Plowman. I have found that it takes "Shepherding a Child's Heart" one step further. She includes verses for specific training and disciplining situations and walks us through how to draw out our child's heart. She continually encourages her readers to eagerly search the Bible themselves to find more verses that will work for their families. As a new Mom I have found it so encouraging! It's a quick read, too, which is also a plus for busy Moms!
