In the age of political correctness there is supreme importance placed on normality. For parents, there is a very real temptation to produce cookie cutter kids who don't stand out and do not stand up for truth. Raising an Original highlights a critical point, that your child is a unique image-bearer of the Almighty, and it is this originality that should be celebrated and nurtured. If you want to raise children that desire to glorify God by unabashedly reflecting His distinctiveness, buy this book.

What I loved about Raising an Original is that is wasn’t written by an ivory tower member of academia, it was written by a mom. And not just any mom, a mom of eight. Wisdom flows effortlessly from every page from a woman that has walked in the steps of her Savior with her children and had the brilliance to stop and write down all that she has learned. In a time when we fear that our kids are going to end up looking like all their secular peers at school, Raising an Original is a God-breathed love letter to your family.

Julie Lyles Carr speaks to the soul. It’s true she will inform, inspire and challenge you, but she also moves you closer to Jesus Christ. She has filled my pulpit on a number of occasions on Sunday, she has spoken at retreats, and conferences. The daughter of a rocket scientist and daughter of the King. That is an unbeatable combination! You will not be disappointed.
