The Blessing, giving the gift of unconditional love and acceptance, is an awesome book written by John Trent and Gary Smalley. Now I have read several books either written or co-authored by Gary Smalley but this is my first for John Trent.
The Blessing describes exactly how to give the gift of unconditional love and acceptance to your children and loved ones. This is a wonderful book for non-parents, new parents, professional parents and especially parents of blended families. I encourage every parent or prospective parents to read this book entirely and take to heart every piece of advise it gives you. You will not be disappointed!!
I strongly beleive this is one of the greatest books by far that every parent must read and I wish I had read it before I had children.That is why I encourage non-parents to read it even more. There is no way that you can emotionally prepare yourself for parenthood but The Blessing can bring you close enough to prepare for your purpose.
Being a parent isn't just bottle feeding and diapers, it is taking care of an extravagant gift that your father has given you. A gift that should be appreciated and cherished as a blessing. An unconditional love that only comes from parents that thrive on healthy relationships.
As much as I encourage non-parents to read this book I strongly erg parents of children at any age to read it, as it helps you find the blessing in other relationships through out your lives. Whether it be with you own families or even the family you dreamed of creating. The Blessing is full of advise on how to connect or reconnect broken relationships.
