Book Review: Setting the Stage for Your Child's Faith by Florence Littauer

Book Description:
In this practical and witty book, popular author and speaker Florence Littauer looks at parenting through the metaphor of a drama--the theme of which is raising children with character and faith. Using examples from the Bible and hilarious experiences from her own home, she shows you how to tend to the plot--set goals and rules, script--have creative and healthy communication, and more.

Setting the Stage for Your Child's Faith also provides you with perspective insight on how to teach children about responsibility, money, courtesy, and prayer. It will remind you that, despite other influences on kids in today's world, conscientious parenting can result in loving family relationships, well-adjusted children, and warm memories of home.

My thoughts:
I have been an admirer of Florence Littauer and her study on the four basic temperaments (Sanguine, Choleric, Melancholy, and Phlegmatic) since I was a teenager and have an obsession with buying her books. I have had Setting the Stage for Your Child's Faith along with another book titled Raising Christians, Not Just Children sitting on my shelf for years. A couple of months ago I was going through my books and realized that they were the same book!

Anyways, I thoroughly enjoyed Setting the Stage for Your Child's Faith. The book begins with setting "The Stage" and explains in detail about the four basic temperaments and how you can apply it to your family. After she sets "The Stage" she then shares very practical and down to earth advice to parents mixed in with humorous and touching stories.


  1. Sounds like a good parenting book. Nice review.. =)

    I have an award for you:
