Road Trip to Redemption by Brad Mathias
This is a wonderful book and all parents should read it. Brad Mathias is a minister and he thought he had the parenting thing all figured out until something went wrong for his daughter and he had to rethink everything. Not only did he find out that his way wasn't working, he found out there weren't any cut and dried answers and that it takes a lot more work and dedication to be a parent. But the key thing, in my opinion, is that God spoke to him on more than one occasion and he chose to listen and follow. It wasn't the easiest course of action but it was the right one.
Part of Brad and his wife's journey through this rough patch included an actual road trip where parents and teens reconnected with each other and with God.
This book should be read by every parent who needs these insights to continue their own journey in parenting their precious children. Even I, as a grandmother, gained much insight into some of the things I have observed along the way.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale for review. I did not receive any compensation for completing the review. All opinions are my own.
