You can find my full review at Quieted Waters.

“No amount of talking penetrates as deeply as example,” writes Elisabeth Elliot, and the pages of this book are permeated with that philosophy. Elliot frequently reminds the reader that this is simply a memoir of how one family raised honest, disciplined, godly children — it is not to be taken as a step-by-step how-to guide. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 080075736X, Paperback)

Elisabeth Elliot, whose courage and faith have helped so many to follow Christ, is one of the most loved and respected Christian communicators of our time. In this book, she offers useful insights on the shaping of a Christian home and family.

Christian parents have a responsibility to raise their children using scriptural principles. Using examples from her own childhood, the author shows how to do that in terms of trust, discipline, courtesy, and teaching by example. Parents seeking guidance for raising godly children will appreciate Elliot's emphasis on:

€ daily Bible reading and prayer
€ clear instructions on parental expectations
€ seeking instruction in Scripture and applying these to questions asked and answers given
€ benefiting from the model of a Godly and happy home

New parents, experienced parents, and all who have come to trust Elliot's wisdom will find this book a wonderful resource of ideas and inspiration. Eight pages of black and white family photos are included.

This book was previously published by Thomas Nelson.
