Dr. Mark Hamby, founder of Lamplighter Publishing, joins Yvette Hampton to kick off our family series with a lesson on parenting like a shepherd.
"The very first thing you learn as a Christian is you learn how to fear God. You learn to hate what God hates and love what God loves, and your character starts to align with that." - Dr. Mark Hamby

Here's what we cover with Dr. Hamby in this interview:
- Dr. Hamby shares about his experience as a shepherd and the lessons he learned about parenting from that time.
- How tragic death and miraculous births in his flock taught him to parent like a shepherd.
- How can we restore our relationship with our kids even when they hate us and it seems like all hope is lost.
- How applying lessons on humility and grace ended up saving his family, his sheep, and his health.
"If you prepare your children to search for wisdom more than hidden treasure and more than silver and gold, you will understand the fear of the Lord, find the knowledge of God, and knowledge will become pleasant to your soul." - Dr. Mark Hamby
