Book Description:

I can’t think of anyone I would trust more than Kristen to teach on this topic. She’s made her entire life a testimony to doing this well, and everyone who reads this book will be inspired by her story, her heart, her wisdom, and her love of the Lord. (Angie Smith, Bestselling author of several books and Bible studies including, Chasing God and Seamless)|Kristen’s words are so timely, and I am thankful for her hard-fought wisdom. I am all ears whenever Kristen writes because she just gets it, and it was no different with this book. If you’re looking for support and practical ideas on how to raise grateful kids in an increasingly entitled world, this book is a must-read. (Sarah Mae, Author of Longing for Paris)|Rearing children in our contemporary culture is difficult, but rearing grateful children is even harder. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen Welch gives solid practical advice. Grateful children become responsible adults. I highly recommend this book. (Gary Chapman, Ph.D., Author of The Five Love Languages)|Parents today fight what seems like a never-ending battle against the current of the culture in raising our children. In Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World, Kristen not only inspires us to raise our children differently, but she teaches us how to actually live that out in our homes. So very practical and convicting. A must-read! (Ruth Schwenk, Pastor’s wife and mama to four, coauthor of Hoodwinked, and creator of TheBetterMom.com)|In this fast-paced, instant gratification culture, Kristen’s countercultural message of selflessness and gratitude is much needed! This book left me convicted, challenged, and encouraged, both personally and as a parent. (Crystal Paine, Founder of MoneySavingMom.com and New York Times bestselling author of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode)|I absolutely love this book. Kristen unearths the heart issue of why many children are selfish and unaware of the needs of others. Her words engage, inspire, and instruct parents in raising emotionally strong, healthy children who are grateful in the important moments of life. (Sally Clarkson, Author of The Lifegiving Home and Own Your Life, and blogger at SallyClarkson.com)

It can be so tough not to cave when your children ask for stuff. “I want it! It would make me happy! Can’t you please get it for me?” Of course you love your kids―don’t you want them to be happy and to fit in, even if it’s tough on your wallet and your peace of mind?
