Children are gifts from God, but parenting those children can often be a difficult task. In It’s Your Decision, author Ed Grizzle shows how parenting can be successful when it’s carried out according to God’s plan. Using his life’s experiences as a guide, Grizzle explores the importance of making the right decisions in life—from choosing the right lifestyle and the right mate and to raising children according to what God has planned for you.
It’s Your Decision discusses
• planning for children;
• knowing what children need;
• being aware of the important years in a child’s life;
• understanding that children will test parents;
• valuing the role of grandparents;
• dealing with abused children;
• communicating openly and honestly;
• clarifying family roles.
Grizzle presents a guide to strengthening lives and making your family life more enjoyable. He shows how this is possible when you accept Jesus Christ into your life; he will show you the way in the difficult times.
How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
My upbringing was the main reason for the book. It gave me the opportunity to share how Jesus Christ can make a persons life more worth living if they follow him.
When and why did you begin writing?
I believed that my wife Mary encouraged me to write the book. I started it four weeks prior to her passing.
What do you consider the hardest thing about writing?
Since this was my first book, I can’t really answer this question. I felt that there was nothing hard about writing it.
Do you intend to make writing a career?
I don’t consider it a career but instead a nice thing to keep me going since I am retired.
Do you have a specific writing style?
I don’t know other than it is they way I write and I have nothing to compare it to.
