The bestselling classic that helps children thrive today and experience a special future tomorrow. Now revised, updated, and enhanced for a new generation! Children of every age long for the gift of “the blessing”—the unconditional love and approval that come from a healthy relationship with their parents. This life-changing gift, essential for instilling a deep sense of self-worth and unshakable emotional well-being, contains five essential elements: Meaningful touch, a spoken message, attaching high value, picturing a special future, and an active commitment. Offering solid, practical advice and a fresh perspective on making this gift a bigger part of our families, The Blessing powerfully communicates these biblically based elements as necessary to prepare children for positive future relationships, including their relationship with a loving God. But what if we’ve missed out on the blessing in our own lives? This audiobook gives hope for “reversing the curse” and helps listeners find blessing in situations of divorce, death, desertion, adoption, and blended families. New to this updated edition are practical ideas, questions, exercises, and links for online resources—plus practical advice for planning a blessing event for a child, preparing a keepsake blessing, and living out the blessing every day of our lives.

    " Excellent. I just love the fact that I have personally broken free of an intergenerational curse and now am busy about weaving a legacy of grace, love and friendship to my miracle and blessing, my son Will! Through imparting on him in various ways and in unique measures his intrinsic worth, I am slowing removing the human "spiritual cataracts" if you will of this life, to see a little bit of what the Father's love for all of us is. A fine book. Read it and bless your awesome kids! "
