Book Review: Parenting - 14 Gospel Principles That Can Really Change Your Family

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

I have found this book particularly helpful when my impatience and my frustrations rise and when my heart is not in a good place. Tripp gently and firmly guides me back to seeing me and my children the way God does and how to live in a way that gives Him the glory. I recommend this book to parents with children of all ages and also to people who are encouraging other parents in the challenges of day to day life.

Book Review: Calvin on the Christian Life

Posted by Thomas Eglinton on

I was trying to think about my favourite part of this book but really, it was all a joy to read and consider.

If you are serving in any way, small or large, in your church, read this book. It challenges bad views, encourages right reasons for serving and left me feeling keen to serve our wonderful Saviour.
