Raise Your Teens on a Rock-Solid Foundation

As children mature, it’s important for parents to prepare for the unique changes and challenges of adolescence. With so many cultural pressures and influences vying for teens’ attention, parents need a secure foundation for creating an environment where faith can flourish.

Parenting with Hope invites you to anchor your hopes and expectations in Christ—the true source of wisdom, strength, contentment, and fruitful parenting. Integrating sound biblical teaching, insights from developmental experts, and her own experiences as a teacher and mother, Melissa Kruger will wisely guide you through today’s most common concerns. Emphasizing principles over prescriptions, Melissa will help you to understand how you can build up and bless your teens in God-honoring ways.

When you recognize God as the ultimate parent, you'll begin to truly understand that he is presently at work in the hearts of both parents and teens. This encouraging and practical guide will equip you with the wisdom to cultivate a Christ-centered household, passing on a legacy of faithfulness to your teenage children.

“Parenting with Hope is the parenting book for teens that we all need! With wisdom and experience, Melissa Kruger offers practical help founded on solid, biblical truths. I can see myself revisiting this one again and again!”

—Hunter Beless, founder of Journeywomen; author of Read It, See It, Say It, Sing It! and Amy Carmichael: The Brown-Eyed Girl Who Learned to Pray

“Mike and Melissa would be the first to tell you that they are not perfect parents, and that’s what makes this book so great. It’s about flawed (though very good) parents pointing flawed children to a perfect gospel. Melissa shows you that when you are at the end of your parenting rope, that’s when God’s promises of grace abound all the more. You, after all, are not writing your kids’ story, God is. And that’s good news for us all. Having had the chance to pastor two of their kids during their college years, I can commend not only their teaching on parenting, but testify to the fruit. This book is practical and deeply convicting. Our battle against our kids’ idols begins in our own hearts! What a gift to the church, and it will be to you also.”

—J.D. Greear, PhD; pastor, The Summit Church, Raleigh-Durham, NC

“Parenting with Hope is a much-needed infusion of gospel-drenched confidence for parents with teenagers.”

—Ruth Chou Simons, mom to six; Wall Street Journal bestselling author, artist, and founder of

“As a mother on the cusp of raising teens in the coming years, I cherish Melissa’s timeless wisdom she generously shares in Parenting with Hope. Melissa’s words are wrought with deep conviction that God’s Word is an unshakable foundation for our lives and our parenting. I’ll be returning to this book often for encouragement and practical advice on how to raise my children with my hope fixed on Jesus.”

—Gretchen Saffles, founder of Well-Watered Women; bestselling author of The Well-Watered Woman: Rooted in Truth, Growing in Grace, Flourishing in Faith

Parenting with Hope…excitement and joy!

Stirred up emotions of joy as I think about God’s plans for my children as they parent. Melissa Kruger is so encouraging, warm, inviting, transparent, and full of grace…exactly what parents need. I loved that Melissa began her book with “The Basics: Foundations of a Christian Home “, and ended with “Set your hope on Jesus…Jesus is the reason we can parent with hope”. I had a hard time putting Parenting with Hope down, and when I finished reading the last sentence I felt overwhelmed with excitement and joy! I have purchased 10 more copies of the book and study guides to gift to my grown children, young moms at church, and grandmother friends! Becky R.
