Heart Work Curriculum

A heart-based approach changes everything. The reward/punishment model of parenting doesn’t work and often makes things worse. 

Stephen Arterburn from New Life saysI have never seen a better book on reaching a child’s heart. As parents we are too quick to correct and miss a chance to connect to the heart of a child.”

In this book you will learn:
* How to connect to your child’s heart to bring about change.
* Ways to correct that are more powerful and last longer.
* To help your child reign in emotions.
* How to use common, everyday activity to build life-skills.
* Biblical, practical tools that work.

Concordia University’s Family Ministry Program requires that every student read Parenting is Heart Work. Dr. Ben Freudenburg says, “This is our go-to book for parenting. It’s biblical, practical approach is powerful.”

God created the heart to be the central processing unit of a person. It’s where strong desires become expectation and can turn into demands. It’s where emotions can and must be managed and used properly for their God-given purpose. Parents can help change the misbeliefs that children have in order to increase cooperation, teach children to respond better to correction, and receive a no answer in a more healthy way. These tools equip you to do heart-work in your home.
