2011-04-29

LONGWOOD, FL â€" Although many people think that children come without instructions, Pastor Larry Youngblood believes differently. In his book Biblical Principles for Parenting: How God Trained My Wife and Me to Raise Our Children ($14.99, paperback, 9781613792353), he explains that the Bible provides all the necessary instructions for raising children. But before parents can even begin to train their children, they must apply the Bible literally to their own lives by having a firm set of Biblical principles and practicing Godly character traits. According to Youngblood, children pay more attention to our actions than they do to our words and, because of this, we must live as authentic examples of the trained Christian.

Biblical Principles for Parenting: How God Trained My Wife and Me to Raise Our Children portrays the message that our Lord is a God of grace and even if we have not always followed God’s plan for child rearing, it is never too late to ask forgiveness and begin again. All around us we can see examples of families who are suffering because parents have failed God and their children. Youngblood hopes this book will help other families by being transparent about his family’s personal struggles. The message of this book â€" forgiveness, grace to start again and literal instructions from the Scripture â€" is essential to saving our families by accepting God’s blessings.

For over 40 years, Pastor Larry Youngblood has carefully studied the Scripture and benefited from the teachings of other pastors, teachers and evangelists. He graduated from Gwinnett Hall Baptist College in Lawrenceville, Georgia, where he teaches as a guest professor in Biblical studies. Having experienced many facets of parenting, Youngblood has pastored for more than 34 years at Calvary Baptist Church in Auburn/Carl, Georgia.
