From Marriage and Family Experts Dennis and Barbara Rainey
Dennis and Barbara Rainey have spent decades helping families find biblical help to strengthen and transform family relationships. Through radio broadcasts, conferences, and other events, they have been teaching on the foundations necessary for building godly families. Now they bring insights and expertise gleaned from those years of ministry, as well as from their own personal experience of raising six children, to The Art of Parenting. Expanding on parenting themes shared with FamilyLife audiences in person and on the radio, Dennis and Barbara offer trusted advice on how to establish Christian values in your home. In The Art of Parenting, Dennis and Barbara will help you to experience God's truth and apply his Word in your family by focusing your attention on four crucial elements in your children's lives:
1. Identity--understanding who they are in Christ
2. Character--learning to live wisely and honorably
3. Relationships--fostering godly connections with others
4. Mission--understanding why they are here When you apply biblical truths in these four areas, you can feel confident your children will have a foundation they can build upon for the rest of their lives.

About the Author
Today Dennis (who serves as executive director of Family Life) and Barbara conduct seminars all over the United States. Thousands of people have benefited from their sage advice on revitalizing family relationships through biblically based principles. The Raineys also host a nationally syndicated daily radio program, and are the best-selling authors of numerous books. Their mission to help couples discover God’s plan for marriage and family has taken on a new urgency in light of our nation’s moral decline. "Families are looking for answers . . . and for hope," Dennis writes. "If we don’t act now, the next generation of Americans (our children) will become the most lost and confused generation ever."
The Raineys’ book, Parenting Today’s Adolescent: Helping Your Child Avoid the Traps of the Preteen and Early Teen Years, exemplifies Dennis’s call to action. In discussing such diverse topics as friends and peer pressure, music and movie choices, and jobs and spiritual growth, Dennis and Barbara present practical strategies that parents can use to help their children make godly, responsible decisions as they grow to adulthood. Also, their many books on marriage offer couples the encouragement and support they need to emotionally and spiritually nourish their own relationship while nurturing their children.
Dennis and Barbara's recent books include Two Hearts Praying as One, Moments Together for Intimacy, Moments Together for Parents, Staying Close, So You're About to be a Teenager, Growing a Spiritually Strong Family, and Building Stronger Families.
The Raineys’ parenting skills are based on years of experience. As parents of six children ranging, they know firsthand the challenges of raising kids in today’s permissive culture. Despite their successful careers, Barbara and Dennis put their children first in their lives. "I am grateful to God for the privilege of public ministry through radio, conferences and writing," Dennis tells Worldwide Challenge magazine. "But, truthfully, all that is a mere shadow by comparison to the ups and downs of love in a real family. One of the greatest privileges of my life is being called ‘Daddy’."
And for those who have been blessed by Dennis and
