If you are entering the program as a client, you don’t need to buy these books. You’ll have access to videos and training materials with your coach. But some people do like to read, and if that’s you, these are the books for you.
If you’re wanting to work on your own to learn the concepts taught to use a heart-based approach in your home, then these books will help you. They contain 20 audio sessions that you can listen to as well. These are not the book read to you, but rather the teaching of Dr. Scott Turansky and Joanne Miller, RN, BSN that complement what you are reading.
If you are being trained as a coach you’ll need these books. If you live in the US, these books come with your tuition fee. If you are outside the US, because of shipping costs, an arrangement for eBooks will be provided.
These four books will provide you with practical, biblical tools to bring about major change in your home.
All parents want to reach the hearts of their kids, but what is the heart? This book unpacks the results of a study that examines the 750 times the word “heart” is used in the Bible and first asks the question, “What is the heart?” Parents, grandparents, and church leaders find the conclusions insightful and empowering.
Then the book asks an important application question, “If that’s what the heart is, then how do we parent differently?” As you read this book, you’ll gain greater understanding into the heart and life of your child, resulting in significant action steps that encourage change. So many kids respond poorly to the typical reward/punishment models that are out there. A heart-based approach is far more effective to bring about deep and lasting change.

The routines you have in family life are strategic for heart change, if you use them as therapy for character development. This one manual will guide you through an important process to develop ways of interacting in your home, using your daily routines that get things done and correct children.
Rebuilding the heart of a child takes place in small pieces over time. The Instruction Routine, for example, teaches kids cooperation, responsiveness to authority, and responsibility. It’s not just about changing the way you give instructions. It’s about practicing the Instruction Routine over and over every day to build patterns of thinking and acting. This step alone teaches children how to focus and stay on task.
Three chapters on correction help parents reach the hearts of their kids using a Break, a Positive Conclusion, and 7 Categories of Consequences. Attitudes, and Accepting No as an Answer each take a chapter as well.
By practicing these techniques, heart issues in kids are addressed one step at at time.
This book contains a link to download eight 45-minute audio sessions that complement each chapter.
