This collection of prayerful meditations, inspiring quotes, and guiding scriptures helps new parents explore what happens when unsuspecting adults have their first baby—a child who proceeds to revolutionize their total outlook on the world. Authors Gerald and Sara Wenger Shenk look at how children draw security from their parents, how love is passed from generation to generation, and how God is part of this sacred work. Intended for both parents, Meditations for New Parents portrays how God is an ever watchful and loving parent, giving new mothers and fathers the confidence and strength to carry on.
This series will appeal especially to traditional parents with a strong faith background who endeavor to raise their families in positive ways.
