“There are plenty of parenting books that will tell you to love your children even in the tough times, but in Purposeful Parenting, Jean Barnes tells us how to love them and how to transform the challenges into life changing events for our children. She goes beyond the ‘what to do’ to the ‘why to do it’ while guiding us to inject purpose and meaning into the life of each child. This is so rich, and you will be such a better parent for integrating the principals into how you are raising your kids.” – Stephen Arterburn Founder and Chairman of New Life Ministries; Host of #1 nationally syndicated Christian counseling talk show New Life Live! and host of New Life TV (; Founder of Women of Faith Conferences; Nationally known public speaker; best selling author with over 8 million books in print.

“I wish I had “Purposeful Parenting” when I first became a parent. The wisdom, insight and practical lessons found within this book will put you light years ahead in your parenting. Not only will it empower you as a parent but it will help create a lasting legacy in your kids. If I could read just one book this year on parenting this would be it!” – Pastor Tommy Hilliker, Pastor of Membership at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA.
