You Never Stop Being a Parent: Thriving in Relationship with Your Adult Children by Jim Newheiser



About You Never Stop Being a Parent

You may have always expected your job as a parent to be done once your children reached adulthood . . . but you're quickly finding out that you never stop being a parent!

Jim Newheiser and Elyse Fitzpatrick ground you in the guidance of God's Word, reminding you that your relationship with your adult children can only be as deep and meaningful as your relationship with him.


“Answers frequently asked questions with biblical clarity, wisdom, and insight. The answers it gives are not only clear and practical, but richly gospel-centered and filled with hope.”

Tedd Tripp, Pastor, Conference Speaker, Author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart 

“The book is packed. No sooner did I think, ‘But what about . . .’ before the next illustration set me off on a wise course.”

Ed Welch, Director of Counseling, Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation

“A very practical book based on biblical principles to help parents of adult children. The style is engaging and the advice very wise. I wish I had had this book years ago!”
