Parenting is tough, and life today is busy. Creating a kingdom mind-set in your home may sound like more than you can handle. But by starting small and starting today, you can produce benefits that will last a lifetime!
Raising kids who recognize and retain their identity as children of the King launches healthy adults who have the capacity to stand strong in their faith. That’s why, with wisdom and grace, respected ministry leader and experienced dad Dr. Tony Evans offers practical, step-by-step strategies to:
Create an atmosphere where your kids can maintain their identity in Jesus Christ despite the culture around them
Grow in confidence as you discover your worth as a parent, based on God’s Word and not on your kids’ actions
Experience the freedom of influencing your children rather than the futility of trying to control them
Gain new strength as you view the daily duties of parenting from a kingdom perspective
Trade reactive parenting for intentional parenting and marvel at the difference
“Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” MARK 10:14 (ESV)
Kingdom parenting is purposeful parenting—helping children learn to live under God’s divine authority, both today and in the future.
No parent does it perfectly, and most of us have regrets about the past and poor decisions we’ve made along the way. But wherever you are in your journey, it’s never too late to start anew, applying biblical principles to parenting and trusting God to bring about the growth.
In this inspiring and practical book, Dr. Tony Evans comes alongside moms and dads with understanding and affection, offering his own hard lessons learned, and easy-to-apply strategies for raising your children in the knowledge that they truly are royalty, children of the King.
No matter what challenges your kids will one day face, raise them so that their hearts will remain open toward home—and the values and principles they learned there.
This book will help you stay focused on the high goal of parenting: raising the next generation who will continue seeking to change the world for Christ.

From the bestselling author of Kingdom Man and Kingdom Woman, Raising Kingdom Kids equips parents to raise their children with a Kingdom perspective and also offers practical how-to advice on providing spiritual training as instructed in Scripture.
Dr. Tony Evans begins with an overarching look at the need for Kingdom parenting, our roles and responsibilities in raising God-following children, and how to prepare children to take on the assignments God has for their lives. He then takes a practical turn, with examples and illustrations to help parents understand and provide specific training for kids in the power of prayer, wisdom, loving God’s Word, getting through trials, controlling their tongues, developing patience, the surrender of service, and much more.
This book is for every dad or mom who wants to fulfill the parenting role God has given them—not just in raising healthy kids intellectually, physically, and socially, but in contributing to their child’s relationship with God and alignment under His plan.
The most solid, thorough, inspirational and affirming parent book you'll ever read! I love this book. It's so much more than your usual parenting book. It's practical and step-by-step, but also inspirational, thorough and encouraging. Dr. Evans offers perspective on "creating an atmosphere where your kids can maintain their identity in Jesus Christ despite the culture around them." I love that. So many people thing Christians "shelter" their kids. I'm more of the perspective of EQUIPPING my son and giving him age appropriate protection. This book is helping me connect and grow confidence as a parent with God. It's more about influencing my son than controlling him, which I think is the difference between sheltering and equipping. Preparing our kids and giving them the foundation they need starts with us, parents! So affirming is one of my favorite quotes from the book, "Instructing your children in the Lord means spending time with them so they can see how you live out the gospel." I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK for all parents.
