God-Confident Kids: Helping Your Child Find True Purpose, Passion, and Peace by Cyndie Claypool de Neve

God-Confident Kids: Helping Your Child Find True Purpose, Passion, and PeaceABOUT THE BOOK

Today's children and teens are growing up more anxious, depressed, and fearful than previous generations. But if we help this generation, often called "Gen Z," to discover true God-confidence, instead of chasing the illusive self-confidence, we can empower them to embrace their uniqueness and find their purpose, passion, and peace as they grow into humble, compassionate, and resilient young people.

Cyndie Claypool de Neve, an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, shares her personal journey from feeling anxious and suicidal to learning God-confidence. She explains how parents and youth workers can use these principles to encourage this next generation to discover the purpose for which God created them. God-Confident Kids is filled with stories, Scripture, psychological insights, and practical tips to help families move from fear-based parenting to faith-filled parenting as we claim Ephesians 2:10 for our kids: "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."


In a world filled with bullying, school shootings, drugs, and a constant barrage of unrealistic images from social media, it is our young people who are suffering. They are becoming depressed, anxious, and even afraid. Family therapist Cyndie Claypool de Neve believes that today's youth need to develop a confidence that comes from them knowing God personally and a belief that He has created each of them for a special purpose. In this new book she shares practical advice and professional knowledge to create a wonderful resource for parents. God-confident kids should be the goal of all Christian parents and the tips, stories, and Bible scripture found in this book are great tools to help achieve this goal.

I recommend God-Confident Kids to parents, grandparents, and anyone who works with young people.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher Baker Books but a positive review was not required and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts.
