About the Author

An ACBC counselor, John Lehman was born in Indiana, but spent fifteen of his first eighteen years of life in Taiwan. As an MK (missionary kid), part of his upbringing was spent in dormitory settings away from his parents. Though minimal time was spent with them during his upbringing, he was reminded about the importance of godly parenting. Early in his life he felt called of God to help people, so that's what he's been doing throughout his ministry years. He trusts this book will be that help to prospective and present parents. His children asked him to write a book for their use, and this is the result of that request.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Give me some tips on parenting” is not something I’d ask of many. I would of Lehman. I find it nearly impossible to read a book on parenting if I don’t know the author’s family. I do know Lehman’s. That’s why I found it impossible not to read this book. It reads as smoothly and pastorally as if he were your mentor across the coffee table, pouring into your life. Think of this practical and biblical book as strong morning coffee for the long day of parenting—with extra shots of Scripture.

Dave Hosaflook, Missionary to Albania

John doesn’t merely talk the talk—he walks the walk. This book isn’t full of common-sense parenting, because biblical parenting is neither common nor natural. It demands supernatural wisdom and power.

Jeremy McMorris, From the Foreword
