From interaction with their peers to the instruction and correction they receive at home, children interpret their experience from a worldview that seeks to answer their fundamental questions:

Who am I? What do I exist for? Where can I find joy?

We need to provide our children with a consistent, persuasive, biblical framework for understanding the world God has made and their place in it.

Instructing a Child’s Heart is essential to Shepherding a Child’s Heart. The instruction that you provide for your children not only informs their minds; it is directed to persuading their hearts of the wisdom and truthfulness of God’s ways.

“A biblical and practical sequel to Shepherding a Child’s Heart.“ — Marvin Olasky, World Magazine

“Biblical. Practical. Pastoral. This insightful book on godly childrearing is everything we would expect from the author who brought us Shepherding a Child’s Heart. Its tremendous value comes from the fact that it centers on the essential but oft-neglected heart of biblical parenting: the Gospel of grace. I am glad to recommend it.” — John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church

“As parents of six spunky children, we’ve found Tedd and Margy Tripp’s parenting advice to be simply the best. In a sea of child-raising materials flooding the market today, Instructing a Child’s Heart is a solid rock on which we can stand. Picking up where Shepherding a Child’s Heart left off, this new book is clear, biblical, and very practical. If you have children, you need to know Tedd and Margy Tripp.” — Kirk and Chelsea Cameron, Actors/Speakers
