Awaking Wonder: Opening Your Child's Heart to the Beauty of Learning

Awaking Wonder: Opening Your Child's Heart to the Beauty of Learning

As a parent, you want to send your children into the world with healthy minds and vibrant faith. You want to develop a strong foundation for them. But in our fast-paced, outcome-based, technologically driven society, it's easy to lose sight of the innocence, potential, and uniqueness of each child. Childlike wonder can become lost in the fog of formulas that view children through the distorting lens of social expectations.

Awaking Wonder
helps parents unearth the hidden potential of their child's imagination, learning capacity, and ability to engage authentically with the world.

Bestselling author Sally Clarkson will help you reach your child's heart of wonder through the principles that guided her in raising four children, all of whom made it into adulthood with a vibrant faith intact and are now flourishing in creative, high-performing professions. Through these pages you will
- gain confidence in your role as a God-designed guide and teacher for your children
- help your children awaken to the wonder all around them
- develop healthy minds that can stand up against societal norms, providing them with a life-giving education and a love for learning

The companion guide, The Awaking Wonder Experience, will help readers apply the principles in practical ways.
