Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

Discover simple habits and easy-to-implement daily rhythms that will help you find meaning beyond the chaos of family life as you create a home where kids and parents alike practice how to love God and each other.

You long for tender moments with your children - but do you ever find yourself too busy to stop, make eye contact, and say something you really mean? Daily habits are powerful ways to shape the heart - but do you find yourself giving in to screen time just to get through the day? You want to parent with purpose - but do you know how to start?

Award-winning author and father of four Justin Whitmel Earley understands the tension between how you long to parent and what your daily life actually looks like. In Habits of the Household, Earley gives you the tools you need to create structure - from mealtimes to bedtimes - that free you to parent toddlers, kids, and teens with purpose. Learn how to:

  • Develop a bedtime liturgy to settle your little ones and ground them in God's love.
  • Discover a new framework for discipline as discipleship.
  • Acquire simple practices for more regular and meaningful family mealtimes.
  • Open your eyes to the spirituality of parenting, seeing small moments as big opportunities for spiritual formation.
  • Develop a custom age chart for your family to more intentionally plan your shared years under the same roof.

Each chapter in Habits of the Household ends with practical patterns, prayers, or liturgies that your family can put into practice right away. As you create liberating rhythms around your everyday routines, you will find your family has a greater sense of peace and purpose as your home becomes a place where, above all, you learn how to love.

Figures and chapter outlines are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Such an encouraging, equipping book!

Just finished this, and feeling so hopeful where I had felt discouraged because I felt unable to change the direction our family was moving in. Now I am so excited to revisit our family’s habits so that they align with our overall goals of being faithful parents and raising little people that love Jesus and love others well. Now I’m going to go back and read it again, so I can really let it sink in.

Really great book!

I also have 4 kids ages 3 months-8 years! Very similar ages to the author's kids. I found this book very relatable. I didn't agree with *everything* but still appreciated his perspectives. What I loved most was how he related so much to the heart of loving Jesus instead of "do this. don't do this." The vibe was more like- do your best and know you're not perfect. Point your kids to Jesus. Let God take care of the rest... I also loved the illustrations of his own family, which seem be a lot like mine! Also, it didn't seem like a typical Christian parenting book. It seemed deeper and more heartfelt.
