This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Can the next generation become passionate followers of God, equipped and ready to fulfill their destinies? Christian parents and mentors are entrusted with the call to nurture and train hearts, releasing children to excel in loving and seeking God. In Raising Burning Hearts, Patricia Bootsma draws on her experience of raising six children and mentoring many others, and shares the profound and hopeful news that this calling is not beyond our reach. Combining practicality and spiritual understanding, Patricia covers important strategies that are often overlooked, like the power of blessing our children, of prophetically declaring truth over them, and of teaching young ones how to hear God's voice, seek Him in the Word, and be constant in prayer. Sharing tangible applications and real-life testimonies, Patricia assures us that parents and mentors can fulfill their heavenly mandate—to raise up and release next generation lovers of God into their epic purpose.
A Must Read for Parents and Mentors
Raising Burning Hearts is one of the best books on how to raise up the next generation with a deep and powerful love of God. Patricia Bootsma will give you great examples and practicals on how exactly a parent (or spiritual parent) can equip their family to obtain the sacred fire in their hearts. I have learned a lot from this book, including many new insights that I did not think of. Bootsma gives many parenting tips that aren’t taught typically such as blessing your children, prophesying over them, teaching them how to listen to God in the place of prayer. These truths, when applied properly, will surly bring the children forth in their destiny. With this guide book, the next generation will truly have their eyes set on God and a fire will be blazing in their hearts. I recommend all parents, grandparents, legal guardians, mentors, spiritual parents, or even those who will one day be parents, to read this book and help raise up burning hearts.
