"We recently had Dr. Kathy Koch speak to our moms ministry about 8 Great Smarts. This book opened my eyes to the miraculous ways God designed our brains to learn and has been incredibly helpful to me in relating to my family, including my young grandchildren, as well as co-workers and friends. I would strongly encourage everyone to read this book in order to understand how God made us uniquely different."

 Jennine Ulibarri, director of women, La Casa de Cristo Lutheran Church, Arizona

 

"As you read 8 Great Smarts, you are convinced that God Himself knitted together every child in the mother’s womb. You are also convinced that He did not design every child identically. Helping children today requires an understanding of how they differ in the way they receive and digest truth.

I do not know of anyone who speaks to that issue with more clarity and practicality than Dr. Kathy Koch. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know how to effectively present the Gospel gospel to children and how to present Biblical biblical truth in a way that makes them eager to learn and grow. Additionally, Kathy speaks out of vast experience. As a gifted servant of God, she has used the Scriptures and her experiences to teach her how to minister and train tender hearts."

Dr. Larry Moyer, founder and CEO of EvanTell

 

"8 Great Smarts equips parents to discover the unique ways in which each child is smart. Dr. Kathy helps parents identify, nurture, and impact their children’s strengths so kids can understand themselves better and maximize their potential rather than being confined to a limited view of intelligence. Because we live in a culture that makes comparisons a part of life, it’s easy for kids to feel “dumb.” Dr. Kathy, however, leaves parents empowered to help kids understand how they are smart—all without an added tutor, activity, or class."

Marianne Miller, Author author, of The Gift of Enough: Raising Grateful Kids in a Culture of Excess

 

"Dr. Kathy Koch’s 8 Great Smarts is a must-read for every parent. This book will help you identify your children’s 'smarts' in order to equip them to be all that God designed them to become. Dr. Kathy clearly articulates how to nurture your children to their fullest potential. In a world where children are bombarded with who they should be, this book guides you to an understanding of who the Creator designed them to be."

Robyn Terwilleger, chief administrator, International Community School, Winter Park, FL
