New Parenting Book Available 
Paul Tripp’s new book, Parenting: Fourteen Gospel Principles that can Radically Change your Family, is for sale in Books, etc. for $15. In this life-giving book, the author offers parents much more than a to-do list. Instead, he presents us with a big-picture view of God’s plan for us as parents. Outlining fourteen foundational principles centered on the Gospel, he shows that we need more than the latest parenting strategy or list of techniques. Rather, we need the rescuing grace of God—grace that has the power to shape how we view everything we do as parents.
