About the book
Instructing a Child’s Heart by Tedd and Margy Tripp provides a crucial foundation for the principles in Shepherding a Child’s Heart, teaching parents the importance of developing and shaping their children’s thinking. This 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 is an essential “how-to” manual for Shepherding a Child’s Heart, helping parents provide their children with a biblical framework for approaching and understanding all of life.
“Biblical. Practical. Pastoral. This insightful book on godly childrearing is everything we would expect from the author who brought us Shepherding a Child’s Heart. Its tremendous value comes from the fact that it centers on the essential but oft-neglected heart of biblical parenting: the Gospel of grace. I am glad to recommend it.”
—John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church
“As parents of six spunky children, we’ve found Tedd and Margy Tripp’s parenting advice to be simply the best. In a sea of child-raising materials flooding the market today, Instructing a Child’s Heart is a solid rock on which we can stand. Picking up where Shepherding a Child’s Heart left off, this new book is clear, biblical, and very practical. If you have children, you need to know Tedd and Margy Tripp.”
—Kirk and Chelsea Cameron, Actors/Speakers
“A biblical and practical sequel to Shepherding a Child’s Heart.”
—Marvin Olasky, World Magazine
