Endorsements for Discovering the Joy of Parenting

This has been one of the most useful books we’ve found for raising our own children. It brings in the element most lacking in parenting in Japan—JOY! We have used this book in parenting classes with mothers and fathers for more than 10 years. The content is accessible and practical even for those who come into contact with the Bible for the first time.

—Kenichi Shinagawa, General Secretary, Japan Evangelical Association


品川謙一 総主事 日本福音同盟

Insightful, practical, and based on the Scriptures. We have used this book numerous times in our church’s monthly Parents and Toddlers class and found it very helpful.

—Mizue Uchida, pastor’s wife, Maebashi Christ Church (JECA)
