Chapter 5: My Personal Parenting Toolkit

The family should be a closely knit group. The home should be a self-contained shelter of security; a kind of school where life’s basic lessons are taught; and a kind of church where God is honored; a place where wholesome recreation and simple pleasures are enjoyed. – BILLY GRAHAM

If I had a toolkit to parent my kids, I would include these ten tips in my box. These aspects have been invaluable to us as we raise our children.

Foreword by Sally McClung, founder of All Nations

Sally & Floyd McClung“Of all the responsibilities I’ve had in my life, the hardest one by far has been parenting. We usually don’t have any preparation or training before we are thrust into this most important of tasks.

In Parenting with Courage, Mandi gives readers helpful and practical tools as well as a godly perspective on the responsibility of shaping lives. She shares a biblical worldview to parenting and encourages us to look at how we were parented as well as the input of “fathers and mothers” around us who have influenced our lives. Her explanation of our natural culture versus God’s culture, and fleshing this out with experience and testimonies, is such a fresh approach to parenting.”

Feedback from Readers

"Parenting with Courage is like having a good friend standing with you while you take on the hardest task in the world!  The wisdom Mandi brings is tried and tested, and it acts like a ‘backbone,’ helping me act decisively when I lack the courage of my convictions."

“Parenting with Courage has shown me how to listen and respect my children’s identity in Christ.  And how to listen to them. It has shown me to ask God first how to handle each of my children’s challenges differently.  I keep it close at hand and refer to it regularly.”

Treshce Webster

“I’m so grateful for this book! It came just at the right time.  My oldest daughter turned 13 and got a cell phone and just to be able to know how to navigate that space, has made me feel safe again.  I applied the recommendations and  it's made all the difference!"

Gary Smalley said, “Affirming words from moms and dads are like light switches. Speak a word of affirmation at the right moment in a child’s life, and it’s like lighting up a whole roomful of possibilities.”

This journal will enable all parents to do just that.

It is only available in hard copy and can be bought from all leading bookstores in either English or Afrikaans.

The Parenting Journal is intended to be a creative and ever-growing expression of a parent’s love for their child. In it, you can write, draw and document the dreams and prophecies you feel are for your child. You can record your prayers and particular Bible verses you trust God for.

This journal contains:

  • A page to write down your child’s name, together with its meaning and the Bible verses linked to their name.
  • Key Scriptures: a section to record essential life verses that you have been (or will start to) pray over your child.
  • Lessons you want to teach your child: a section where you can write down the intentional experiences you feel you need to teach your child
  • Quotes and Scriptures from Parenting with Courage
  • Plenty of blank pages for you to write your prayers, note your answered prayers and journal your thoughts as you raise your child.

About the book

Mandi Hart, author of Parenting with Courage, is currently finishing off her vulnerable and honest book on conquering fear. Launch date is expected for mid-2019.

Mandi can speak with authority because she was “there" (entangled in fear). For her, the issue of fear is not theory. You will most likely want to read this book - and then reread it - especially if you’re suffering from anxiety. You will find a roadmap here - one that will lead you to freedom - and to Jesus. It will also help you find the roots of your fears. Mandi has done the extensive digging and combined her struggles with the truths and guidelines of Scripture. She succeeded to enrich her book with well-researched information and the thoughts of people who brought much insight to different aspects of this complex issue. ‘Unfortunately’ all of us find fear in our lives and with the help of this book, you will be guided to overcome and live in a place of victory.
