Parenting Beyond Your Capacity

Authors: Reggie Joiner, Carey Nieuwhof

When parents and the church work together, the impact on kids increases dramatically.

In Parenting Beyond Your Capacity, Reggie Joiner and Carey Nieuwhof help parents discover a “bigger story” in which to involve their family, one in which multiple influential voices combine in order to tell kids the same thing: that a relationship with God really matters.

Parenting Beyond Your Capacity can help parents establish a lifestyle in which they:

  • Invite others to invest in their children to help shape and determine the direction of their lives.
  • Create a culture of unconditional love to fuel the emotional and moral health of their children.
  • Tap into the power of quality moments together, building a sense of purpose through everyday experiences.

Includes small group questions. Small group discussion starter videos available for download, for free, at TheParentCue.org.

“I love Reggie and Carey. And by the time you are a dozen or more pages into this book, you are going to ’em too! In Parenting Beyond Your Capacity, they provide us with a practical and revolutionary approach to the responsibility most of us find daunting—parenting. At the heart of this book are five family values that I’m convinced will equip you to be successful throughout your child’s development.”—Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Community Church

“As parents to six kids, nothing is more important to Amy and me than passing on our faith to the next generation of Groeschels. Reggie and Carey offer simple, solid steps to make that goal a reality for parents from any
background.”—Craig Groeschel, founding and senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv

“As one of the founders of North Point Community Church and a proven innovator in family ministry, Reggie Joiner is in a terrific position to offer insight into how churches and families can align their strategy for the benefit of preschoolers, children, and teenagers.”—John C. Maxwell, best-selling author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership

“If you are a parent and desire a close relationship with your children, this book is a must-read. Parenting is tough, and my life is so busy that I sometimes feel overwhelmed by parenting; sometimes I get so out of balance that I get discouraged. But this book will motivate you. This book will encourage you. If you want to stay focused on what really matters and move your relationship with your children in the right direction, this is the book for you.”—Joel Manby, CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and father of four girls
