Raising an Original: Parenting Each Child According to Their Unique God-Given TemperamentJulie Lyles Carr
Most Christian parents are bombarded with all kinds of advice and plans and programs for how to be a great parent. In parenting eight kids over the last twenty-five years, Julie Lyles Carr and her husband experienced plenty of opportunity for learning, but it was when they b... Read More
In Raising an Original, Carr helps to redefine the primary purpose of Christian parenting, this raising of the next generation. God has given each of our children specific gifts, abilities and capacities for specific purposes and He can equip parents to discover and support those powerful personality traits if they know where to look and how to respond. So many kids raised in Christian homes launch into their adult lives without any sense of knowing who they are called to be or what their mission on earth is. What if parents, teachers or mentors could help them discover the wondrous, unique threads woven within them that will enable them to see their part in the fabric of God’s universe?

- great resource! by blessedchick on 11/2/2016
I have three young men. All three of them are so uniquely different. I want to raise them all to be who God called them to be so reading this book, Raising an Original by Julie Lyles Carr is a great resource that has helped me in raising them. I learned that I can't parent them all the same, but I have to do different things to get through each of them separately to help them become who they are. Each of them have their own special talents and I want them to use them and be confident in being an original. This book is a must have for every parent.
- Inspirational and Helpful! by Bonnie Shrewsberry on 9/13/2016
Julie is amazing. This book was a treat to read. Real life applications for embracing your child's specific personality type, and raising them to be anything but normal. I learned so much, even about myself that I honestly had not realized. This book touched on areas and seasons of my life I'm currently in. Buy this book, you will laugh, cry, and be introduced to a better way to parent. This style is one that honors God. Such a talented and gifted woman, I'm so thankful to have had the pleasure of reading!
