  • This book is helping me understand some of my own issues; the underlying reasons. What a powerful book for any parent on how to raise your children and what you should give them emotionally leading up to them leaving home and doing life in the real world. I would recommend for all parents and also for people like me that missed the blessing and had no idea I had until reading this book. I am now more at peace with my emotional makeup and know that, with this information, I can work to change some of my hangups.

  • In our world of fast everything, do we really have the time to bless our children, spouses, families and friends? I know my own time management is stretched to the limit with keeping our home, educating our children, being an involved wife, and so much more. So, how do we bless others? Why is it so important?

    In The Blessing (revised and updated), John Trent and Gary Smalley introduce us to 5 biblically proven ways to bless our children and others. With many examples, both from scripture and the counseling practices of the authors, the elements are not only defined, but also put in context for us.

    "Children from every age long for the gift of "the blessing" - the unconditional love and approval that come from a healty relationship with their parents.

    Meaningful touch
    A spoken message
    Attaching high value
    Picturing a special future

    Each biblical element of the blessing is discussed and modeled in the book In this revised edition, the authors have included practical ideas, questions, exercises, and links for online resources. There is a section for planning a blessing event for a child, preparing a written keepsake blessing, and living out the blessing every day of our lives.

    For adults who have missed out on the blessing in their own lives, ths book includes hope for "reversing the curse" and helps readers find blessing in situations of divorce, death, desertion, adoption, and blended families.

    I especially liked the chapters "If You Missed the Blessing" and "Reversing the Curse." I know many adults that didn't grow up in a loving environment and continually seek the blessing in any way possible - not all healthy ways, either. This cursed can be reversed, and these parents can bless their children!

    I learned many ways to bless my children and family from this book. This book is one that I will refer to often. I read (and reread) parts of this book over 3 week's time. The Blessing is a book that you read in small chunks and mull over each point.

    I highly recommend this book for every parent ----- no matter the ages of their children!

    My rating: 6 out of 5 stars

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from booksneeze.com, a part of the Thomas Nelson Publisher, for my honest review.

  • This is an excellent, thought-provoking book on how parents can assure their children that they are truly loved. Even when their children grow up and become adults, parental blessings can be a source of renewed confidence and peace. I especially liked the way the author gave examples of how parents could express their thoughts

  • I had to read this for my Christian counseling class. I wasn't completely thrilled, but after finishing it, I was very glad that I did! This had some great information that I think every parent or grandparent should read! Will definitely be loaning this out to my clients.

  • This is a wonderful book that every parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, and teacher should read! It can have a profound effect on every child that you come in contact with. It contains the 5 things that a child must have from a significant adult in their lives. Definitely for every parent to read! And it is beneficial for those who work with children.
    And if you did not receive the Blessing from your parents, there is information about how you are able to receive the Blessing as an adult!
    We even have a small group of ladies who studied this book together and we have become a Blessing Bunch that meets weekly. We are in our second year of giving the Blessing to others!

  • This should be mandatory reading for every parent. Raising children with your intentional , thoughtful blessing on their life and who they are can mean night and day difference in their own self-perception, their confidence, their decision-making ability and their ability to successfully transition to adult life. The Blessing is a small investment in money and may require
    a meaningful change in how you view and raise you children. But is it ever worth it!!

  • Couldn't get any better....well worth the purchase....please, please get this book...it does not only apply to husbands and wives. Do you have a relationship with someone? child, co worker, buddy...then you need this book!

  • Beautifully written! Geared toward parents, but it can be for anyone. Very thought provoking. I loved it.
