love, pray, listen by Mary DeMuth is not a how-to-parent adult children book. Instead, by using 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, Mary promises that by the time readers finish the book, they will have a better understanding of how to practically live in the midst of this parenting teeter-totter between grace without truth creates license, and truth without grace creates legalism.
Mary’s hope in writing this book is that parents will unpack what it means to tangibly love their adult children, deepen their prayer life for them, and actively hear the heart of their adult child.
Whether your adult child is making choices you rather they wouldn’t make or not, I believe all parents of adult children can benefit from reading love, pray, listen.
As Mary asks, what if our adult child’s behavior and decisions are not about them, per se, but part of God’s refining of us?
Perhaps, as we carefully read this book, we will find the answer to that question and much more.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
