Heartfelt Discipline: Following God’s Path of Life to the Heart of Your Child, by Clay Clarkson, 2 winners

Childhood discipline is your responsibility.

If you’re a parent, your children need you to discipline them. There’s no debate about that in Scripture. They, and God, are expecting you to “bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” But there is one thing open to debate… how to discipline your children. What does the Bible really say? Is there a divinely-designed method, a promise of parental success? Or is there a better way?

There’s no formula for childhood discipline. No laws, no rules. God has provided a “way” that is better. It’s the way of life, the biblical picture of the path we walk with God. It’s all about faith, relationship, Spirit, and heart. As a parent, you’re already on that path of life with your children. You can lead them with three key principles of discipline:

Direction—Guiding and showing them how to walk the path with God
Correction—Getting them back on the path when sin leads them off of it
Protection—Guarding them from temptations that could draw them away

In Heartfelt Discipline Clay Clarkson helps you understand what the Bible really says about childhood discipline. Drawing on twenty-eight years of parenting and his personal study of the Bible, Clay fully fleshes out God’s way of “path of life parenting.” It will change how you think about your responsibility to discipline your children. It will put you on the path to your child’s heart.

Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe, by Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae, 2 winners

Desperate is a conversation between two moms: Sarah Mae, the young mom with three children in the trenches of motherhood needing encouragement and help; and Sally, the seasoned mom of four grown children able to offer personal counsel and help as a mature mentoring mom. In the pages of this book, you listen in on their mom-to-mom, heart-to-heart relationship.

Sarah Mae is a typical young, modern, active, connected mom, raising children in a culture that has changed radically in the past few decades. As a committed wife and mother, and an active mom blogger, there are too few hours in her day, and motherhood often gets the short shrift. Sally is an older mom who has raised four wholehearted children, all grown and following the Lord. She has a wealth of experience and biblical insight to offer moms through books, speaking, and Mom Heart Ministry. She enters Sarah Mae’s life as a mentor mom. Sarah Mae expresses the stresses and struggles common to so many young moms, giving voice to the challenges she experiences against the frailty of her own spirit as a woman. Sally comes alongside to respond to Sarah’s concerns as both a friend and mentor, offering wisdom born of experience, gentle admonition, and biblical encouragement.
