Big Picture Parents Giveaway

For your opportunity to win one of six copies of Harriet Connor's Big Picture Parents: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Life, tell us in 25 words or less why you need some ancient wisdom for your parenting.


Being a parent in the modern world is tough. We are often overwhelmed with fear about damaging our children, guilt about our imperfections, and confusion about our role. Harriet Connor knows these feelings well. But hers is not just another parenting book full of "shoulds and shouldn'ts" to make you feel worse. Rather, she invites you to step back and consider the bigger picture: 

  • What is the purpose of life and parenthood? 
  • What are our human limitations? 
  • How can we cope with our guilt and fear? 
  • What are our family's values and how do we pass them on? 
  • What is our family's structure and place within the wider community? 

When she was desperate for answers, Harriet Connor turned to the ancient wisdom of her ancestors—the Bible. She went looking for little pieces of grandmotherly advice, but what she found was a grand vision—a big picture—that made sense of both life and parenthood. 

Whether you are new to the Bible or have read it before, you will not regret taking time to reflect on its message, which has given comfort and guidance to generations of parents just like you.

Giveaway ends April 30, 2018. Australia and New Zealand addresses only, sorry.
