He is also the author of I Exalt You, O God, The Practice of Godliness, Trusting God, Transforming Grace, The Discipline of Grace (winner of the ECPA Gold Medallion award), and The Joy of Fearing God. The Grace Guide helps you reflect on your memories, both joyful and hurtful, and shows you how to extend grace to yourself and others through self-examination, prayer, and remembrances of how God showed up for you in special times. You’ll even be encouraged to write a letter to your younger self!

Always, in the Christian home, grace should abound (Col. ). Another way to think of it is that discipline works from the inside out – changing the heart of your child.
