Parenting on Your Knees by Vicki TiedeOver the next two weeks the Cross Focused Reviewers are participating in a book review blog tour for Parenting on Your Knees: Prayers and Practical Guidance for the Preschool Years by Vicki Tiede (Pix-N-Pens, 2013). Excerpts and links to the reviews will appear below as they are available:

“If you are looking for a practical guide that includes basic prayers to pray over your children Parenting on Your Knees is the book for you!”
Megan Martino (

“I recommend this book to families of young children and those who care for young children.”
Rani Grant (

“Being a former pre-school teacher, I feel this book would make a great gift for a first time mom and dad. Parenting can be frustrating as well as the greatest experience of your life. Using this book as a guideline as well as your Bible and God given common sense, you’re well on your way to making a lifetime of great memories…”
Rosemary Swinehart (

“I would recommend this magnificent book to parents who have toddlers, they are expecting their first child, or you’re hoping to have kids someday. This book was an enormous blessing to me and it taught me many things about using my time wisely and praying for my children.”
Andrew Smith (

“I would highly recommend this book to new moms and those that have little ones running around. The chapters will give you solid biblical guidance and wisdom for those those trials and tough moments.”
Amber Ravatsaas (

“If you are Christian parents and have preschool aged children in your home Vicki Tiede’s book will be a help and encouragement to you in parenting your children through those years to and for the glory of God.””
Harold Cameron (

“My assessment is that this book could both really help a new parent or help tweak a more experienced one. It’s so easy to fail at being diligent and to need a reminder. You will get that and some new ideas as well here.”
Jimmy Reagan (

“I enthusiastically recommend this book and urge you to grab a copy for yourself as soon as you possibly can. Sometimes parenting may knock us to our knees, but after becoming equipped with the knowledge in this book, you will have knee pads to land on, as well as the tools to intersperse parts of the changes you desire to see, into the life that you already have.”
Sarah Cobb (

Parenting On Your Knees is an excellent resource for parents, whether this is your first child, or number four, five, six…. I recommend that you pick it up and read it yourself. You’ll be glad you did.” Jeff Randleman (

“I would suggest this as a great addition to the Christian parent’s toolbox. Put it on your “standard baby shower” gift list alongside link-a-doos and cabinet latches and get it in the hands of expectant families. Those that take the time to read it will be thankful you did.” Doug Hibbard (

“The question that comes to my mind is this: “Where was this book when I was raising my own?”… This is a wonderful resource for every mom. I will be recommending this book to all my mom friends.” Joanne Viola (

“While we all know praying for the kids we love is important, this book inspires us to do more than know – it gets us praying.” Joy DeKok (

“The book is well organized and one I recommend as a great reference, kept nearby for those moments when you forget why you wanted to be a parent in the first place, or just need a nudge of encouragement to keep on keeping on” Beverly Terry (

“I strongly suggest this book as a companion to any new mother. It would make a wonderful baby shower gift, a giveaway at your moms group or a great gift for yourself as you travel the road of bringing up your children in the fear and admonition of the Lord!” Tara Kluth (

“Using the delightful writing style God has gifted her with, Vicki comes along side the parents of Littles in her newest book Parenting on Your Knees: Prayers and Practical Guidance for the Preschool Years.” Faith Farrell (

“We all struggle to get through those early years with our brains intact. With God’s enabling and Vicki’s encouraging book you will be on the right track in no time.” Jalynn Patterson (

“When you are not sure what or how to pray about a certain trial or developmental stage – or need a different perspective – pull out this book and read and pray with the author on behalf of your child..and yourself!” Betsy Cypress (

“This is a great tool for young moms who are tired, busy and in need of an a laugh, a sense that they aren’t alone, and some encouragement that what they are doing matters for eternity.” Heather King (
