If you’re looking for where to find Christian parenting resources that will give you good solid Christian parenting advice and tips then you’ve come to the right place! I’m here to share with you exactly where to go for help as you navigate the waters of parenting as a Christian.
Wouldn’t it be nice though if kids just came equipped with a user manual? I’m sure we’ve all thought that at one point or another! But the truth is that most of parenting is just stumbling around trying to figure out exactly what you’re doing along the way — and feeling way under-qualified for the job!
But the good news is that there are many who have come before you and more than likely there are those out there who have faced similar (if not the exact) problems as you’re facing right now with your children.
Maybe you’re going through a particular struggle and don’t know where to turn for Biblically-sound parenting advice. Or perhaps you’re just wanting some extra Christian parenting tips and ideas to help you grow as a parent who is striving to raise godly kids.
Whatever the case may be, I’m here to help you. I’ve rounded up all of the different places that you can look to find parenting advice from a Biblical perspective. So you have a good jumping off point and know where to look!
Christian Parenting Books
The first, and maybe most obvious, place I want you to look for Christian parenting advice is in books. There is a wealth of information to be found on whatever topic of parenting (or Christian parenting specifically) that you’re interested in learning more about.
If you don’t have the money to spend on books, then be sure to check your local library. A lot of libraries are apart of whole networks of other libraries so you can often find exactly what you’re looking for. Sometimes you can even request that they buy the book you’re wanting for the library.
And if your hangup with books is not having the time to read (believe me, I get it), then there are always audiobooks. Not every book is in audio form, but a lot of them are! You can find a wide range of Christian parenting books on Audible, Christian Audio, and many others too.
Here are some great Christian parenting books you can start with:
Bible Studies for Christian Parents
While books about Biblically-based parenting are great Christian parenting resources, Bible studies can be even more helpful. Because a Bible study about parenting will help you to dig deeper into the Bible and what it says about being a parent. Plus they will often include a workbook which can expand your study even further.
Just be sure that whatever Bible study you choose is Biblically-sound and doesn’t attempt to twist scripture to say things that aren’t true. Be discerning and approach every guided Bible study you do in a prayerful manner.
Here are some Bible study options for moms:
Christian Parenting Courses and Classes
Another way to find great Christian parenting resources is to look for online (or offline) Christians parenting courses and classes. These can be an excellent way to dive really deep and learn so much about training your children up in the ways of the Lord.
There might be some great local classes at your church or another church in the area going on for Christian parents. Or you can also search around online to find Christian parenting eCourses. What’s nice about eCourses is that you can take them any time of the day and completely at your own pace. Often times they will include videos as well that you can listen to while you’re getting other stuff done.
So definitely consider taking on a Christian parenting course or class near your or online. It’ll be well worth your investment of time and money.
Here are just a few great parenting courses you can try:
Website and Blogs for Christian Parents
Did you know you’re reading another great place to find Christian parenting ideas and advice? Yep, that’s right, Ministry Minded Mom is a Christian Parenting Blog and it’s just one of the many blogs and websites catering to Christian parents like you that you’ll find out there on the web.
Blogs and websites are such a great place to find all sorts of information, and Biblical parenting is no different. Whatever issue you’re facing or question you have about being a Christian parent, there are more than likely completely free articles out there to help. Pinterest is great place to start for Christian parenting resources like articles and blog posts. Be sure to follow Ministry Minded Mom’s Pinterest account too, where I regularly post links to Christian parenting articles from not only my own blog, but also from other websites too.
But as with any other Christian parenting resource, be sure to test everything you read against what the Bible says to make sure it’s true. If it doesn’t line up, then don’t follow that advice!
Here are some of my favorite Christian Parenting blogs:
Christian Parenting Conferences
The next place you can find some great Christian parenting ideas is at conferences specializing in Christian parenting (and yes, they exist). These can be a great way to get so much bang for your buck. You get to hear so many experienced speakers who have a lot of amazing Christian parenting advice all in one place.
These kinds of conferences might be going on near you — be sure to look around online, at your own church, or at other local churches to find one. Or you can also take some online. And just like with eCourses, you can typically take them at your own pace so long as you get in within the time frame that they’re open for registration.
If you decide to go to an in-person parenting conference for Christians or sign up for one online, just be sure to take lots of great notes! Then you can go back and review what you learned and it won’t be just going in one ear and out the other.
Christian Mom Mentors (aka Titus 2 Women)
You might find yourself in the season of striving to be a Proverbs 31 Woman. But there are older Christian moms who are at the stage in their lives where they are working hard to be a good Titus 2 woman. And these kinds of women make excellent mentors for Christian parenting advice and tips.
Where you can find one is a good question. But I would look close to home to start. Is your mother or grandmother a good role model for Christian parenting? Or perhaps someone at church who you really look up to. As you search for someone to be a good Christian mentor for you, also be praying about it. God will lead just the right person to you that can help shepherd you in the way God wants you to go.
And if you don’t find another woman to mentor you as a Christian parent, then don’t get discouraged. Keep praying about it if it’s something that means a lot to you. And in the meantime also dig into all the other great Christian parenting resources out there that can help you.
What’s your favorite place to find Christian Parenting Advice?
There are a lot of great places both online and offline that you can learn more about how to be a good Christian mom.
