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.

Great book for young families

Any age family really, but especially young families. I was so encouraged by each chapter and challenged by a few, in the best way. Thankful for this message!

Loved it!

I loved this book! So much wisdom. Loved every idea he gives to make habits. I would recommend getting this in hard copy only because you’ll want to highlight so much. I may just get one and read it again. So good!

Wow!!! Must Have for Parents of all ages!!

I have read a lot of parenting books, but this one has felt different. I keep going back to reread chapters to let the concepts and practical actions given to sink into my head. The author is so grace-filled but he doesn’t back away from speaking hard truth that lines up with God’s Word and I really appreciate that! One of my top 3 books for sure!!!

INCREDIBLE!!

Wow what an amazing book!! Best parenting book I’ve ever read by far! So practical! He tells stories that show you he is in this same life as us. Same struggles, same imperfections. It’s very encouraging to know we are all in the same boat but also be given some really great tools and insights to make life better and to help build better humans! Thanks for writing it!!

Absolute must read

A fantastic synthesis of theory, practice, and practical ideas with examples in action and explanations for the Christian family wanting/needing advice.
I’ve had seven kids, two in their 20s, the rest at school, and this was still so useful for me! I wish I had it when my big boys were little!

I bought a hard copy to refer to and highlight. Would also make a perfect addition to a baby hamper!
