Keeping our kid’s way pure is difficult at best. We are in a spiritual battle. “Many of us live each day as if we are in natural circumstances, when in reality – the trying circumstance that appears in the natural is a war being waged in the supernatural.” (Tammy Wollner) The fight for us and our children and our purity is supernatural.
I loved reading this book and Tammy makes it clear that, “We as Christians need to wake up each morning, put on the armor of God mentally and spiritually, and be ready to do battle with Satan at any point in our day. Most of all, we need to train our children to practice this.” (Tammy Wollner) I could not agree more. We have a difficult enough time doing the right thing without a war raging around us. Add to our own weaknesses and disillusioned desires, plus the desires of the enemy, and we can never go without our armor. His Word needs to be buried deep within our hearts so we have the ammunition needed to fight the sworn enemy of our soul.
Keeping His Way Pure addresses how this can be done with a great four step plan. Psalm 119:9 says, “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to your word.” That is where Tammy’s four steps come in. The steps are easily laid out and give great pictures through experiences of what each step would look like. I also like that these things are not just her thoughts on what needs to be done, but that scripture is pulled in many times to show that it is God’s word not hers that shows us how to live a pure life.
Along with the four steps Tammy offers sections for when the steps are not working and spiritual warfare. We all know that even if we do all the things that are right by God’s standards, things can still go wrong. Our kids have a mind of their own and a will of their own. And this book doesn’t forget about that and leave you hanging if the four steps don’t work.
What I like most is that while this is written specifically for son’s, it can be used for our daughters and for our own lives. Everyone is called to live a pure life and all of the things taught in this book are excellent things to do for ourselves as well as our daughters and sons.
This book was a great blessing and wonderful surprise. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make sure their children grow in the Lord and live a life of purity in all things.
I was asked to do this review and though I was given this book I was not paid anything for my review. This review is truthful and honest and given freely. Thank you so much for the opportunity grow and learn while reading this book. It was a pure blessing, God Bless.
