Why Jayna wrote this book:
“‘With all the parenting books on the market and with all the Christian child rearing books on the reduced price shelves, why are you spending months writing another one?’ I asked myself. I laid this book aside several times because the process just seemed impossible. When I shared these principles in a parenting class in the fall of 2015, the audience looked at me as if I was an oasis in a desert. I was obviously providing hope. Almost every week new couples joined and they took extra copies of the handouts to share with friends. So I wrote this book; it is written from the material I shared with parents for over two decades.”
How she wrote this book:
As a blogger, she wrote this book with short chapters that could be skimmed to find the most pertinent information.
As a children’s minister, she said what she always wanted to tell parents. Proverbs 29:18 warns that without a vision people perish; therefore, your first duty is to visualize your child at age twenty-two. In the first chapter you will describe the character qualities that you hope your child will have upon reaching adulthood. The remainder of the book provides you with the tools needed to make your vision into reality.
As a mother, she provides twenty discipline techniques, helpful tips in infant care, new approaches to sibling rivalry, and a process to remove the anger from your discipline.
As a Bible teacher, she applies biblical principles to everyday parenting situations. For example, she compares Jesus’ training His disciples with teaching children how to do household chores. You will learn how to love and respect your child without surrendering your authority.
Although Jayna Coppedge received a bachelor’s degree with a marriage and family emphasis in 1983, she continues to study family relationships. A children’s minister for twenty-four years, she taught children of all ages, trained Sunday school teachers, and walked along with families in every life stage. Her occupation provides her with a unique perspective of family systems, observing and being in relationships with hundreds of children from birth until they leave home.
She maintains and active web presence with her blog, A Woman Trusting God, is a regular contributing writer for Ask God Today, speaks at women’s conferences, and teaches weekly Bible studies and parenting classes.
