Parenting is no easy task and takes courage. Steve and Teri will gently guide you down a biblical path to raising your children who won’t rebel.

Written for parents of young children to teenagers, this book shares the joys and outcomes of our vital priority--keeping our children's hearts. Rebellion and immorality are common among teens even within the Christian community. Does Scripture offer any path of hope for more than this for our children? What can parents do to direct their children toward godliness rather than worldliness? When does this process begin? What is the cost?

The most complete and most balanced book I have read on how to raise children who won't rebel! Dr. S. M. Davis

Steve and Teri Maxwell believe the key factors in raising children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4) are whether or not the parents have their children's hearts and what they are doing with those hearts. Having raised eight children to adulthood without rebellion, they have experience. Keeping Our Children's Hearts offers hope, direction and encouragement on this critically important topic.

Included in this book is a chapter co-authored by all the adult Maxwell children concerning their thoughts, feelings, experiences, and outcomes of growing up in a home where their parents kept their hearts.

What might you lose if you delay? What might you gain if you start today?

"We were having a huge struggle with our oldest daughter who is now 13. When she turned 11, she became destructive, rebellious, etc. We were distraught about it and tried talking, punishing, etc. I decided to fast until we received an answer. Right after that, a friend told me about your books and website. I ordered your book, Keeping Our Children’s Hearts, and both my husband and I read it. We made a lot of changes in our family, and God has blessed us abundantly. My daughter has made a complete turnaround. I thank you for what you have taught us and what you are teaching others. Thank you for your faithfulness to the Lord."

"I must say that Keeping Our Children's Hearts has changed our whole family's lives for the better!! We have been working on the many aspects you mention and have seen a complete turn around in our children's behaviors. I feel like this book had many of the answers we've been questioning the Lord about concerning raising our children. I am so eager to see the Lord work in our family as we walk out God's will for Biblical family life."

"I have read most all of the 'good' books on child rearing and they are all great, but this one is different ... it touches on the most important issue of all that is so easily overlooked in the day to day! I can't say enough good things about it. It is the BEST EVER!!!!"

The First Book to Buy by Conservative Christian Mom:
"After falling in love with the Manager's of their Homes book, I realized I wanted to read more of the Maxwell books. Keeping your Children's Hearts was actually on the bottom of my list. I felt like I had done that and I knew how to do that. However, I ended up reading this book because my aunt gave me her copy. This is my favorite of the Maxwell books. It is the foundational book, in my opinion.
I think I always understood to shelter my children from the bad, but this book really brings out doing things with your children that are not only wholesome, but edifying. It has literally changed my entire perspective on parenting!
I think the download is an excellent accompaniment as well!"
