Parents want the secret to how to take a new-born and grow them into a responsible, godly adult. In reality, there is no “secret”. Raising children successfully takes purposeful passion, focus, and commitment. Gladys Mwiti, PhD takes the reader through twelve characteristics for purposeful parenting, showing clear examples from both her own experience and case studies of others in all different social and economic circumstances. Partnerships with those in the community are stressed to help open the growth of a child in a manner that God desires. So, while this book is not a “recipe for success” in parenting, it will provide you with the principles, that when practically and purposely applied, will not only change your family, but families for generations to come.
