God first gave specific instructions for being a parent in Deuteronomy 6. He instructs parents to talk to their children everyday about God and His ways. Everyday Talk offers practical, creative ways to do that. Learn how to use ordinary conversations to show your kids the goodness and wisdom of God. With clear biblical teaching, John Younts illustrates how to lead your children into a greater awareness of the presence and glory of God.
Includes a Foreword by Jay Adams

“Everyday Talk is a masterful book. It provides valuable talking points for conversations about everything from weather, to sex, to music. The two essential features of biblical parenting are properly aligned in this book: penetrating insight into the heart and the centrality of the gospel, not only for salvation, but for life.”
– Tedd Tripp, author, Shepherding a Child's Heart
“This book gives great hope and encouragement to us. It is amazingly practical and refreshingly biblical. It reminds us that our every–day talk influences our children greatly. By God’s grace we plan on implementing Everyday Talk today!”
– Lance and Beth Quinn, Pastor & Wife, The Bible Church of Little Rock
“John has a conversational approach that brings Biblical principles right down to the level of today’s parent. This work can be used for various ages; it is not just for the younger kids. I will recommend it often.”
– Bill Shannon, Pastor for Children's Ministries & Pastoral Care, Grace Community Church
“The careful, straightforward discussion on the influence of music is a must–read, and the challenge about profane speech was full of wonderful wisdom and clarity. If each principle were seriously considered and obeyed the spiritual and practical rewards world be rich indeed.”
– Jerry Wragg, Pastor, Grace Immanuel Bible Church
