Battle Ready Moms Raising Battle Ready Kids, by Reba Bowman
Battle Ready Moms Raising Battle Ready Kids, is written by Reba Bowman, and is an outgrowth of her ministry Dare For More Ministries. Through her ministry and work as a coach, professor, and dean of women, she has had opportunity to interact and disciple women of all ages and is excited to challenge them to a deeper walk with the Lord.
Written for mothers, particularly those who have children in the younger formative ages, this book is an encouragement to seek after the heart of your child and lead them in God’s ways as we view parenting in our culture from a biblical mindset. I appreciated how she spoke from her heart about the importance of training up our children to “fight the good fight” with wisdom and very clear godly directives for their life. In this book, you will read about the importance of discipline, the importance of rules and guidelines (and a mutual understanding between a parent and child as to why they exist), the importance of honest and open communication about friends and morality, and the importance of encouraging character in our child’s lives. Our children are precious gifts from the Lord and nothing is more important than their souls. I appreciated how this book reinforced the earnest necessity of our relationship with the Lord, as well as praying for our children that they would have a personal and vibrancy as they recognize their sin and their need for the Lord as Savior.
