Disciplines of a Godly Family presents a consistent, creative, loving approach to rearing children. Parents of four and grandparents of eighteen (so far), Kent and Barbara Hughes have plenty of experience using simple, practical ideas to raise a godly family and have fun in the process. They draw deeply from the Bible and their own years of raising children in this warm and intimate book.
Peppered with examples from their loving (but not perfect) family, the Hugheses show that raising children who honor God and others is a task well worth any parent's effort. Chapter topics include establishing a solid family heritage, promoting affection between family members, encouraging godliness in children, using appropriate discipline, and helping children cultivate enriching lifelong habits. The Hugheses also offer tips for fun and affordable family vacations, creating family traditions, and starting a prayer notebook. They even give us a suggested list of books and videos that should be in every family's library.
For those struggling to parent their own children or to equip other parents for this task, a more practical, honest, and common-sense guide will be hard to find.

"Provides help for families who want to honor the Lord through structure in their homes. The Hughes family, though they are not perfect (and they are the first to attest to that fact), speak from their own spiritual experience and growth. We are fortunate that they share their insights so others can profit."
—The Baptist BulletinThe Baptist Bulletin
