Great Christmas Presents for Christian Parents

Great Christmas Presents for Christian Parents - Parenting Like HannahDo you have Christian parents on your Christmas list? Are you looking for a great gift for your spouse? Are you thinking of ideas for presents friends and relatives can give you? While the Bible is always your best resource for finding the answers you need in life, sometimes it helps to have some extra practical ideas or encouragement from someone who has walked in your shoes.

Below is a list of some of my favorite books for Christian parents. Not all of them are specifically Christian and I may not agree with 100% of everything in them, but there is so much value, they are absolutely worth reading. (Most of these books I have reviewed individually on this blog at some point, so feel free to search this site for a more detailed review.) I have found they have a lot of practical ideas and encouragement in my Christian parenting journey. I have also included links to Amazon so you can read more details and start comparing prices to your favorite booksellers.
