With honesty, humor, and keen biblical insight, bestselling authors Bill and Beni Johnson help you discover the keys to successful parenting in God’s kingdom. “Parents, we rule for the purpose of protection, but we also serve with the purpose of empowering,” they write. “We want to release our children into their destiny–that’s the privilege of parenting.”

In these pages you will gain the wisdom, kingdom concepts, and practical tools you need to help raise your children to their best.

You’ll discover how to parent to their uniqueness, gifts, and strengths, as well as how you can demonstrate and reveal who God is to your kids. The authors also address pressing issues parents face today, including how to

· be fully engaged in hearing what the Lord is saying over each child
· maintain relationship and discipline
· develop character
· train your children for worship
· fan the flame of what God has put in their hearts
· and more

No matter what age your kids are, you have an incredible opportunity to shape their hearts, minds, and values. Here is everything you need to help your children walk into the destiny of their lives and see them become the awesome people they were created to be.

My thoughts:

I always get excited when I see a Bill Johnson book come out. I enjoy hearing him speak, he is full of humble wisdom.

But, if I am honest, I haven’t found a book yet that I love by him. That doesn’t mean this book isn’t good. It is. It is full of Godly wisdom that you can definitely apply and use but I found my mind wandering and I would have to go back and read.

I’m sure it’s me and for whatever reason his writing style doesn’t capture me. But, as I said, this book really is full of wisdom and ways to raise our children to be giant-killers.

Begin Your Journey to Spirit-Soul-Body Health Today… Beni Johnson received a life-changing revelation about how anyone can start walking in holistic health—including you! Jesus died for your spirit, soul, and body. This means you can experience His resurrection life in all three areas! Christians should be the healthiest people on Earth because they understand God has made their bodies His temple. Unfortunately, many people focus on one area of health while neglecting another. This can lead to spiritual disconnection, bad eating habits, depression, poor rest, and lack of exercise.

In Healthy and Free, Beni shows you how to:

  • Find your why: Learn the motivating secret to pursuing a healthy lifestyle as your new normal.
  • Unlock the connection: Discover the many ways your spirit, soul and body are interconnected and how health in one areas directly effects another.
  • Start simple: Receive practical and easy-to-implement steps to begin walking in health right now.
The Great Physician desires you to walk in Heaven’s health. Get aligned with God’s divine design today and experience freedom—body, soul and spirit!
Beni Johnson and Bill Johnson are the Senior Pastors of Bethel Church. Together they serve a growing number of churches that have partnered for revival. Beni oversees Bethel’s intercessors and Prayer House. Her approach to intercession makes supernatural connection with the Lord accessible to all. Bill and Beni have 3 children and their spouses. They also have nine grandchildren.
This is really a great book. If you don’t really like books about health (and I don’t) then you might actually like this book.
Beni begins with a very important question: Why? Why do you want to get healthy/loose weight?
I never thought about how important the why is. Honestly, I haven’t reach and answer for a good why and therefore have no motivation for loosing weight. I need a good why that speaks to me. Not someone else’s why and why they think I should.
I think until it truly becomes important to us we won’t sustain the changes we need to make.
Beni gives wonderful advice about changes we can make. She definitely doesn’t push for dieting but more for healthy living.
She covers so many topics this is bound to speak to everyone at some level.
