Reviews - What do customers think about Growing a Spiritually Strong Family (Family First)?
Cheat notes for the biggest test of your life as a parent Jan 11, 2008
This book is short, sweet, & to the point. It is filled with ideas, tips, & personal stories and examples. It has ideas for immediate, practical application in your life. As a fairly new Christian, it really hammered home the incredible responsibility to our children that my husband and I have beyond food, shelter, caring, discipline, education, etc. It opened my eyes to how important it is we lead our kids toward Christ in the early years so they won't stray too far later. We have to remember we are not raising children, we are raising adults. This book also emphasizes the importance of putting your marriage first, which too many people, myself included, forget to do. This book would be a great gift for newly married or expectant parents.
Wonderful foundation for a family! Jan 7, 2008
What a wonderful book full of powerful, basic principles for shaping a healthy environment for your marriage and children. Information like this could change our cultures family crisis!
You never graduate from the basics Nov 21, 2003
The book is filled with lots of fun stories from the authors' experience and many references to the Scriptures that back up the suggested principles. It focuses on "ten critical factors in raising a spiritually strong family." Although some might consider the listed principles and habits to be basic, I know from personal experience that they still take effort and intentionality to actually live out and that they will have powerful effect if practiced consistently. I hope to regularly review the suggested habits in this book and consider how I am doing at applying these biblical principles and practices.
Speaking of which, the introduction states, "This book also includes ten `spiritual seeds'- practical and uplifting activities for you and your mate that will nurture your family's faith." I found this statement to be very true and appreciated these simple practical "action points" highlight in each chapter as well as the many other specific and practical suggestions listed throughout. Since it's a short book, it's great for time crunched people in our overly busy society.
Food For Thought Feb 7, 2003
As a busy Mom with 6 young children I do not have a lot of time for leisure reading. The size of this book is perfect for me! It fits in my purse so I can quickly pick it up between dropping off and picking up the kids from extracurricular activities. I am always looking for small pieces of "food for thought" to ponder thoughout the day. Deepening our family's bond spiritually is a goal for me and picking this book up periodically throughtout the week helps to keep my thoughts focused on that goal.
