Raising Amazing is the best book for practical godly wisdom on how to raise children the way God wants us to. Monica nailed it! I cheered in my heart while reading the book from cover to cover and cried when I finished it. A mandatory must-read if you have children! Rachel-Ruth Lotz Wright, coauthor of Jesus Followers
Few things are as challenging or rewarding as parenting. If you're like me, you'll take all the help you can get. This book will help you, challenge you, and inspire you. Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker, lead pastor of National Community Church
Raising Amazing might feel like an intimidating title. Maybe you feel like you are barely raising, let alone raising amazing. Trust me, as a mom of five boys who range from six to twenty-six, I get it. But here's the good news: Monica doesn't define 'amazing' as something you must produce in your kids. Rather, 'amazing' is all about parenting on a foundation of God's amazing grace. Our children's choices are between them and the Lord, but Monica shows us how we can partner with the Holy Spirit to plant seeds that, God willing, will produce amazing fruit. Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free and Don't Miss Out
Just reading the title makes this mama of seven raise her hand and say, 'Sign me up for that!' Monica's gracious way of explaining God's truth for our families without pushing a formula for having perfect kids is refreshing, honest, and real. This book is a great reminder of my role as a parent and God's role as the ruler of all things...and thank the Lord for that! Kirsten Watson, author of Sis, Take a Breath, executive editor of MomLife Today
Full of refreshing perspective and practical help for every parent, Raising Amazing will give you a vision for the family you long for. Ruth Chou Simons, mom to six boys, Wall Street Journal bestselling author, and founder of gracelaced.com
We all need guides, especially in parenting, and Monica is an incredible guide to raising a family that loves each other because they love God first. This book deserves the name--it's a truly amazing resource for parents who want to follow Jesus as they raise their kids. Justin Whitmel Earley, lawyer, speaker, and author of Habits of the Household
Monica Swanson walks her talk--and her kids are walking, talking testimonies that these parenting principles work! If what you've been doing isn't working, Raising Amazing offers biblical help that you can put into practice immediately. Monica's inspiring wisdom and actionable takeaways will equip you with everything you need to raise an amazing family who loves God and each other. Raising Amazing is...well...amazing! Wendy Speake, coauthor of Triggers: Exchanging Parents' Angry Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses, host of The 40-Day Sugar Fast
Today's kids are shaped by a thousand voices and influences--and for parents, this means our voice and our influence has gained unprecedented importance. Rather than shy away from this call, it's time to step up, and through Monica Swanson, you have a wise and winsome friend to propel that journey. Kari Kampakis, bestselling author of Love Her Well and More Than a Mom, host of the Girl Mom podcast
Raising Amazing is one of the best parenting books I've read. It's Jesus-centric, fun, and uberpractical. One of this book's dozens of practices can change your life. But Monica makes it easy to adopt many of them! Jordan Raynor, bestselling author of The Creator in You and Redeeming Your Time
Rarely do I encounter a parenting book that is both inspirational and practical. This is it! Monica is the 'mentor mom' we're all looking for, and she has generously shared her insights with us on these pages. Her wisdom springs from her personal experience as a mom of four boys, current research, and most of all, her deep and long-standing friendship with Jesus. I am grateful for Monica's gracious and countercultural voice, and I know you will be too! Nicole Zasowski, licensed marriage and family therapist, author of What If It's Wonderful?
