Most times, when parents curtail some of their children's excesses or scold them for wrong behavior, their children complain that their parents are annoying and do not love them. In the true sense, it is because of this "annoying love," as termed by the author, which has their best interests at heart, that parents do this. Annoying Love is a non-fiction work by Jamie Pettit that speaks more on this love and how parents can build a family of faith while following God's design or outline for a family.

Having served over thirty years in both pastoral and administrative settings and also being the father of four adults and now their grandchildren, Jamie shares in this book a ton of experiences and virtues about how he and his wife did their best to be available for their children while they were growing up. First, he explains the mantra of "annoying love" and how it doesn't make you a bad parent when your children call you annoying; rather, parents should do what is best for their children. He emphasizes the importance of the presence of parents in their children's lives, as some parents try to supplement their presence with other superficial resources. Read Annoying Love by Jamie Pettit to get full details on these important aspects, secrets, and tips for building the perfect faith family.

This book is a must-read for parents and young people who will eventually be parents, as its contents have proven invaluable. The author is quite concerned with spiritual growth and how we can include Christ in our homes. It is a concise, eleven-chapter work on doing the right thing in our homes and for our families. Jamie uses word of mouth and infuses biblical teachings to back his points. I learned a lot from him, and this book was truly refreshing to read. The vocabulary was easy and would be simple for all to understand. The writing style was instructive—not too harsh or too lax. The book was truly well structured, and I enjoyed my time with it.

I acquired no dislikes after the time I spent on this book, which is much due to the fact that all advice and instruction were virtually important and not-to-miss. Following his words, the author also shares his life experiences with his family and how he and his wife raised the children in love and unity. I witnessed the importance of homeschooling and availability on the part of the parents and how this impacted them positively. I encountered two minor errors while reading, but it didn't stop me from acknowledging that this book was professionally edited.

Due to its overly important theme and likable agenda presentation, Annoying Love receives a 5 out of 5 stars from me. I recommend this book to audiences interested in spiritual growth and building faith families. Parents and young people would also learn a lot from reading this book.

This is a great review. The author is right. A lot of parents are not physically, mentally and emotionally available for their kids. They try to compensate with material things, all these will later tell on the children. Good job!

Annoying Love by Jamie Pettit is a book that is very relatable with each and every human being. There's no one that'll say he or she has never felt this way about how we were raised growing up as kids.

Reading this review I remember when I was a child I would always complain they never loved me but growing up now I realized they only wanted the best for me. Most times after going through some stuff I just go back and hug my parents cause I'm really grateful they never for once gave up one me despite being stubborn .
I must say a parent's love is always like the biggest blessing

Most times, children do not understand why their parents take some certain actions until they have grown up into adulthood. Annoying love is another eye opener, on how the parent-child relationship works. I like how Jamie extensively talks about these lingering issues.

The author is absolutely right, it's because of parents annoying love that we are who we are. Although we couldn't comprehend it when we were young,we now understand everything they did was in our best interest.

Every child can attest to calling or thinking that their parents are annoying especially when they are corrected. Books like this touch social issues and goes a long way. Great review.

When sometimes we feel that our parents are annoying but in a deeper meaning, it shows love for us because they want us on the right path; following God's teaching. I like this book since the author has so much experience on the matter of the book with backup scriptures. It sounds like a good fit for me. Thanks for your amazing review!
