    The statistics are sobering: between 80 and 90 percent of kids who have grown up in the church are leaving the church after age eighteen. Children slipping away into a culture that tells them the Bible isn't true, sin is no big deal, God isn't real, or there are many ways to get into heaven. Whether parents may blame themselves or the culture, the result is the same: lost souls.

    But our God specializes in lost souls and the gospel is as powerful as it ever was. With wisdom that comes from personal experience, Jim Putman and his father, Bill Putman, offer brokenhearted parents and loved ones hope for their prodigals.

    A prodigal son himself, Jim has also found himself in the role of the prodigal's father when his own son rejected the faith. This family's powerful story of restoration, along with solid biblical truths and practical advice, will inspire, motivate, and equip readers to go after their lost sheep with acts of love and service.

    The bestselling author of Don't Make Me Count to Three lays out a simple, Bible-based plan that shows parents how to help their kids tame their tongues and walk in the transforming power of Christ.

    Are you ever embarrassed or shocked by what comes out of your child's mouth? Do you raise your voice, threaten, and coerce, but find yourself frustrated because nothing seems to work?

    In I Can't Believe You Just Said That , Ginger Hubbard provides a practical, three-step plan to reach beyond the behaviors of tongue-related struggles--such as lying, tattling, and whining--to address your child's heart. After all, as Matthew 12:34 tells us, "the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."

    By moving past the idea that parenting is about rigid rule-setting or behavior management, we can set aside ineffective practices such as scolding, ignoring the offense, or merely administering punishment. Instead, we start to see that our children's outbursts are prime opportunities for the ultimate goal of all parenting: to guide them to the redemptive work of Jesus and his transformational power.
