There's no doubt that your parenting role changes drastically when your kids become adults. You are deeply invested in and affected by your adult children's choices. Parents whose children choose difficult--even seemingly wrong--paths deal with heartache, disappointment, and the danger of strained or severed relationships. You need a robust theology for long-term parenting gleaned from the discipleship model Jesus exemplified, one that will carefully and thoughtfully apply his way of expressing love.

Mary DeMuth has written a gracious, practical resource for wisely navigating the rocky terrain of family conflict. In this book, Mary will help you gain a better understanding of your new parental role, find reassurance that you are not alone, develop practical ways to move forward, and discover a clear path for growing in your own spiritual maturity during this phase of parenting.

Leaning on the truths of 1 Corinthians 13--the "love" chapter--the book reveals that your changing role is not the end of joy. It is an invitation for spiritual growth and a path toward fulfilling relationships with your adult children.
