Reviews - What do customers think about What is a Family??

A MUST Read for Anyone With a Family!  Nov 12, 2003
This book is excellent! The author uses incredible imagery to exemplify her points. Anyone with a family will appreciate this book. Reading it made me think a lot more about what real quality time is all about. It made me think about the things that are truly important! I would recommend this book to anyone I know!
Wonderful  Mar 7, 2002
Everyone who cares about having a wonderful family life should read this book. It is packed with great ideas to enhance every moment of each other's lives - even when someone is sick. Mrs. Shaeffer is very open in describing their family and how they made things special but not to the point of making their life seem perfect. One of her best chapters is about creating a "Museum of Memories" by choosing to create positive memories instead of just plowing through one more day. I highly recommend this book!
What a lovely book  Sep 29, 2001
This book is lovely. Each chapter explores what a family is and the place of the members in the family. It makes me proud to be a mother and house wife. It makes me look at my place in the family in a new light- I'm a historian, a confidant, a friend, and more. What an uplifting book.
the beauty and importance of family  Feb 28, 1999
This is an inspiring and wonderful book. Edith Schaeffer makes the reader love and appreciate the importance of family. It is a unique perspective. Each chapter decribes the family in a different way. For example, there is a chapter called, "A museum of memories," which explains the importance of making happy memories for your children and some ideas on how to do it. Another chapter is called, "A perpetual relay of truth." The chapter, "A shelter in a time of storm," makes one feel honored to be caring for a sick or needy family member. She has other chapters defining the family in other ways, including a place of education, an economic unit, etc. On the days I had time to read even just a bit of this book, I went about my tasks as a wife and mother joyfully and with contentment.
