Are you wondering which book you should read first—Shepherding a Child’s Heart or Instructing a Child’s Heart? Here’s how we think about these books:

Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Tripp presents a fresh paradigm for childrearing. While most childrearing books focus on managing children, Shepherding a Child’s Heart focuses on nurture. Shepherding presents the biblical truth that all behavior is heart-driven, and applies the teaching of Proverb 4:23, “Above all else guard your heart for it is the well-spring of life.”

Instructing a Child’s Heart by Tedd and Margy Tripp responds to hundreds of conversations with young parents about raising children. In these conversations it became obvious that parents do not spend enough time with what we call “formative instruction” – instruction that forms and shapes our children’s thinking. “Formative Instruction” is not discipline or correction; rather, it is intentionally building a biblical culture of thought and understanding in our homes. Instructing a Child’s Heart emphasizes the importance of providing our children with a biblical worldview that they can understand and apply to life. In a sense it is a “how-to” book for Shepherding a Child’s Heart.
—Tedd & Margy Tripp
