Today I’m reviewing How Many Times Do I Have To Tell You by Rachael Carman.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
“I remember the day you were born.”
“Turn down the music!”
“This is going to hurt me more than it’s going to hurt you.”
“Hold my hand.”
You’ve probably said these things to your kids, but have you listened to
what you’re saying?
In fact, your heavenly Father wants to tell you many of these same things.
Rachael Carman knows how noisy it can be when you’re raising children—she has seven!
But this lovely devotional book will help you to hear God’s still, small voice amid the chaos of carpools, cut fingers, and carpet crawlers.
You’ll learn how to recognize God’s instructions for you, even as you seek to follow His example as a parent.

The author gives her readers a challenge — list the top 10 things you hear yourself say most often to your kids; then ask your kids to list the top 10 things they hear you say most frequently.
Rachel say the resulting lists will give you a starting place to explore the things God wants you to hear.
Did you take the challenge? You really should, you know…
Throughout the book — each chapter — Rachael speaks of God; his amazing love, his blessings, the salvation that is meant as a gift for each of us.
Since I am sure of my salvation, perhaps the most important message in this book for me, is the suggestion to focus on communicating God’s love and your love to your children (and grandchildren), giving them a foundation of a real, lasting and perfect love — God’s love — before discussing behavior.
Maybe this is what the whole world needs… to truly know God’s love — the real… lasting… perfect love of God. Unfortunately, most parents speak mostly of behavior, giving their children a deep-seated feeling that their parents’ love depends on their behavior.
This is a wonderful book! Full of encouragement, reassurance, inspiration and reinforcement — it prepares you for life!
I’m not kidding… in every chapter — everywhere the author could think of — Rachael reminds you to be sure of your own salvation, your own relationship with God.
Because only then can you be fully prepared… for anything!
