This resource is produced by The Christian Counseling and Education Foundation (CCEF). To find out more visit their website at www.ccef.org.
The question was never whether or not your child would get into trouble. The real question was whether or not you would get the chance to respond. Right now you have that chance!
William P. Smith explains that your child’s trouble is a God-ordained opportunity for you to pursue a bigger goal than raising a child who behaves. Right now you can demonstrate what God’s kindness and grace looks and feels like. By applying biblical principles as you respond, you can help your child to experience the life-changing reality of God’s perfect love in the midst of personal failure.

About The Christian Counseling and Education Foundation
Since 1968, the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation has set the pace in biblical counseling. We teach people how to explore the wisdom and depth of the Bible and apply its grace-centered message to the problems of daily living. Simply put our mission is to Restore Christ to Counseling and Counseling to the Church.
CCEF exists to Restore Christ to Counseling. We have a passion for personal change that is centered in the person of Christ. We have seen him bring significant change to individual lives. This passion is our heritage and heartbeat, and it leads us to constantly revisit the question, “How do the riches of the Gospel impact my life and my efforts to help others?” Everything we do flows from our desire to equip Christians to live and love in a Christ-centered way.
CCEF also exists to Restore Counseling to the Church. We believe that the body of Christ is God’s primary context for change, the community God uses to transform his people. CCEF’s mission is to equip the church to be this kind of transforming community. We see ourselves as an extension of the local church, and we want to serve and promote its ministry.
We accomplish our mission through a unique synergy of counseling, courses, publications, and conferences. What ties these strands together is our passion to equip God’s people to experience Christ amid the challenges of daily life.
