Item description for Shaping Your Family's Faith: One Family's Story of Growing Strong Together by Jack Eggar & Dona Eggar...

Sometimes parables communicate truths better than any self-help book. Meet the Millstones: a good family that takes some wrong turns such as online affairs, bad lifestyle choices, and troubling attitudes until biblical truths begin transforming their lives.

Publishers Description
Sometimes parables communicate truths better than any self-help book. Meet the Millstones. Jason and Sarah and their three children are just the sort of Christian folks you'd want for next-door neighbors. Or so it seems. As the story unfolds, the "good" family takes some wrong turns. Petty theft, on-line affairs, bad lifestyle choices and troubling attitudes show that things are far from well in the Millstone family. As the pages turn, readers discover such practical concepts as: change can be good but is often painful; marriage requires constant maintenance; crisis can be opportunity; actions speak louder than words; and love for your children and spouse means commitment and sacrifice. As they follow the parable of the Millstone family, readers will see these truths illuminated in a fresh new way that will help them strengthen their own marriage and family.

Reviews - What do customers think about Shaping Your Family's Faith: One Family's Story of Growing Strong Together?

Good read for your family  Jul 17, 2007
This short and easily readable book is divided into two parts: a fictional story that reveals the principles Jack and Dona wish to teach, followed by a brief discussion guide to three key principles of raising your family effectively.

Jack Eggar serves as president of Awana Clubs International, a curriculum and program for training children according to Biblical values. Churches around the world use Awana Club materials as key components of their ministries to children and families. In this new book, Jack and Dona Eggar extract some of those primary ideas, framing a fictional tale about a family that discovers it is headed in the wrong direction.

Life for the church-going Millstone family seems to be fairly normal, yet actually it's going from bad to worse: small-time theft, on-line immorality and infidelity, and more. Instead of the perfect family they appear to be, the Millstones are struggling without a firmly grounded faith. Yet by discovering the truth and responding in obedience, the adults in the Millstone home are able to salvage their relationship and begin again.

Well-written and effectively told, the Eggar's contemporary fable invites the reader to consider his or her family in light of Biblical truth. Rather than focusing on outward appearances, the book issues a call to a heart made right with God. In conclusion, the authors invite parents to train their children to love and obey God for a lifetime.

Note about the reviewer: Dr. David Frisbie is executive director of The Center for Marriage & Family Studies in Del Mar, California. A frequently consulted expert on families in crisis and transition, David and wife Lisa have authored eight books and numerous articles on family life.

Armchair Interviews says: Readers will learn from this family's story.
A great read for any family!  May 14, 2007
This is a very cool book that will appeal to a lot of people. There are two things that make it so good.

First, the story itself is very entertaining. The plot has a lot of interesting twists and turns, and the characters are believable. Trust me, you'll start recognizing people from your own family as you read this book!

Second, this book helps me appreciate my family more. The principles Mr. Eggar puts in are definitely sound, but even more than that, I found myself getting caught up in the story. I could see some of my own flaws, and it really helped me want to be the best Dad I can be.

Give it a try!
