Monica Swanson’s new book, Raising Amazing, is a practical guide for raising kids you actually enjoy and developing strong faith-filled family connections.
Parents remain the most powerful and important influence in their kids’ lives. Many parents lose sleep over their responsibility, wondering if they’re providing the right boundaries, discipline, and examples to ensure their children have a bright future. In her second book, Raising Amazing: Bringing Up Kids Who Love God, Like Their Family, and Do the Dishes without Being Asked, Monica Swanson combines years of research with personal stories and step-by-step, practical advice to give parents the help they’re looking for as they seek to raise amazing kids. Instead of being overwhelmed by the growing challenges family’s face, Monica cheers on parents to pour into their kids’ lives in a way that inspires them and shapes them into young adults they are proud to launch into the world. Raising Amazing offers parents with kids of all ages a resource to build generations of adults with character, strong family bonds, and a relationship with God.
In addition to Monica’s words, each chapter includes “A Word to Dads” from Dave, Monica’s husband. The call to “raise amazing” kids is for dads as much as for moms. Kids need their dads more than ever, and while it’s easy for some to check out and leave the hard parenting to moms, Dave’s relatable words offer the hope dads crave, tools they might lack, and some healthy perspective to motivate them. Along with this section and each chapter’s reflection questions, Raising Amazing provides moms and dads a book that’s easy to read in tandem to transform their parenting methods together. This isn’t just a book: it’s a fresh perspective on parenting that may just change the trajectory of reader’s family forever.
