Discovering the Heart of Parenting

About My First, Second & Third Attempts at Parenting

Plenty of parenting books focus on how to fix bad behavior. Not so many focus on how to cultivate a child’s heart. Even fewer focus on how to deal with our own hearts as parents.

My First, Second & Third Attempts at Parenting is not a how-to book. It’s a collection of stories and reflections designed to help you discover the elusive, yet most important, part of parenting: the heart. Chapter by chapter, story by story, we will examine God’s heart toward children and our hearts as parents, as well as how we can prepare our children’s hearts to know and love their heavenly Father.

Steve Murrell is a man to be taken seriously no matter what he’s talking about, but especially when he speaks about the heart of fathering.
