John’s New Book, The Bible Parenting Code, Now Available!

John’s new book, The Bible Parenting Code, is now available for purchase!

Don’t let the title fool you. This is not one of those dubious works in which the author claims to have discovered a cryptogram hidden in the Old Testament that reveals God’s plan for surviving the coming apocalypse, or some such thing. John uses the word “code” in its original sense: referring to a set of principles that guide proper behavior relative to some purpose. In this case, the purpose is the proper raising of a child.

When Paul, in his letter to the Ephesians, says that children should be brought up according to the “training and instruction of the Lord” (6:4), he refers to God’s parenting code, which John lays out in the pages of this book, written in his usual eye-opening and engaging style. Of the forty scripture contained in the code, most seem, at first glance, to have little if any bearing on the raising of a child. Take Jesus’ command that we love our neighbors as we love ourselves (Mark 12:31), for example. That fundamental Christian precept has direct bearing on parental responsibilities and John explains how. Learn why the discipline of a child is a form of spiritual warfare! Find out how Ecclesiastes 3:1 – “There is a time for everything and a season to every purpose under heaven” – applies to parenting matters!

The Bible Parenting Code has a built-in study and discussion guide, making it ideal for use in group settings. This latest addition to John’s ministry to parents and families, he says, “Will help parents align themselves with the only parenting plan that really and truly works.” As with everything else under the sun, God has the final word on the subject!

The Introduction and first chapter of The Bible Parenting Code is available here.

Transform your parenting journey with personalized advice

Personal Consultations With John

John is licensed to practice psychology and he is currently available for personal consultations with parents.

Please note, John does not employ psychological theory or psychological methods in his counseling. For example, he does not test, render diagnoses, or recommend psychiatric medication, nor does he speak with children.

John speaks directly – in most cases, by phone – with parents about a broad range of childrearing issues regarding children of any age. At the first session, which generally lasts 90 minutes, John begins making corrective recommendations. More often than not, three phone sessions are sufficient to putting plans in place and “tweaking” their effectiveness. John does not charge for relatively brief phone calls or emails in between scheduled appointments.

Hear From Our Satisfied Customers

What a joy it was to host John here at Church of the Savior over these past few days. The numerous positive responses I have already personally heard and the vivid response seen in the number of books sold are a testament to the importance of his ministry. At last count 561+ people heard him speak in his various seminars and close to 1000 people who attended our regular Sunday services heard his important message as well. As youth pastor here at Church of the Savior – and I speak for our Children’s Ministry Director as well – we are excited to see the fruit of his message and teaching over the years as parents put into practice all they have learned this weekend.

Youth Pastor, Church of the Savior, Nicholasville, KY

Thank you SO much for your advice. Things are going much better. A lot of the drama and stress has been cut down and both kids (2 and 15 months) are happier. I have been praying about it and seeking Godly counsel from a mother in my church who parents the “old school” way. I am all for the old-school way that John teaches, and I have seen it work. I am trying to raise my kids that way. I made two lists and put them on the fridge for when I am too tired to remember. One list has the issues we are working on and then the consequences. The other list has important things written down, such as put God and marriage first, use few words, be confident, don’t let kids frustrate you, etc. These lists and the wisdom you have shared have worked. We are still working on my daughter’s (2 yr) attitude problem but a lot of the other issues are clearing up. She is now totally diaper-free and this morning woke up for the first time totally dry. Thank you so much for listening and giving such good advice.

C.L. (Parent)

We attended one of John’s small-group parent retreats in the Spring of 2019 and it completely changed our family for the better. We had one daughter at the time (who was in the midst of the “terrible” twos), and have since welcomed a second daughter. It is such a relief to no longer be sifting through psychobabble. We watch our friends struggling to potty train 3-year-olds, struggling with children who refuse to sleep in their own rooms, etc., and are so grateful that whenever discipline issues arise in our home, we have tools to get things back on the right track.

“I enjoyed this weekend seminar very much! I came away with a lot to consider and also some very relevant guidance on specific classroom concerns. I found the parenting advice to be clear and concise, and I look forward to implementing the ideas at home and with our parent community.”

“You were direct, informative, engaging, approachable, yet no-nonsense. What you have shared with us will be of real practical help to many people, and I can’t wait until the next time we will hopefully be able to invite you back to Full Circle. Thank you for sharing your experience, time, and wisdom with us.”
