Book Review: 10 Powerful Tips for Training Unstoppable Children by Patti Gibble

In 10 Powerful Tips for Training Unstoppable Children, author and trained ministry worker Patti Gibble shares what children need to move confidently through life in a fallen world. In her easy to understand, engaging style, Gibble talks about love, honor, salvation, and more.

As a parent, I want to give my children what they need to follow the life God has planned for them. I want them to know how much they are loved by their family and their Creator. I want to be the example of honor I expect them to follow. They need to be so sure of the gift of Salvation that no matter what happens, they don't doubt it. They must know the powerful friend they have in the Holy Spirit. Gibble reminds parents and others involved with training children that these 10 tips will help prepare youngsters for a life that is often unfair, dishonest, and selfish. With examples from her own life, the author shows what a difference preparing our children properly can make.

I truly enjoyed the chapter on the Church as an unstoppable fortress. Gibble reminds readers that we need to protect children and how the Church helps us to "protect our children from being overpowered by the gates of hell." By making church attendance a priority in our lives, we show our children how important God is to us. They can see how the adults in their lives depend upon that time with God and the chance to fellowship with others.

While I don't think mature Christians will find anything surprising in this book, having a reminder to focus us from time to time is a good thing. New parents or parents-to-be would benefit most from 10 Powerful Tips for Training Unstoppable Children.
