Adopting Grace: A Parenting Journey from Fear to Freedom will be available for purchase on September 12, 2017.
For over 30 years, Tricia Wilson has been a mom - first to three sons she birthed and later to two adopted daughters. The product of a conservative evangelical upbringing, she practiced a much touted legalistic fear based “Christian” parenting model. Things at home rolled along well enough until…the entrance of two toddlers whose earliest months were lived in very difficult circumstances. A decision had to be made. Destroy two children and a family or wholeheartedly pursue and embrace dramatic change. Step by step, she embarked on a journey toward gentle, respectful, progressive Christian parenting. This is the story of a radical changing of heart and mind along with the faith and parenting lessons learned along the way. Grace moved in as fear moved out.
Adopting Grace shares the story of a mom who needed to make big changes in order for herself and her family to heal. Throughout the book, Tricia mixes in real life stories and practical ideas on how to parent with grace, connection, and relationship. Through her parenting experiences, she also discovered and lived into a gentler side of Christianity. This is a story of God’s grace imparted within family.
