Thank you.... Jul 8, 2008
Karen Cooper has done an awesome job in describing her family. There was so much to learn about them. Faith can at times be seen in a negative light when it involves raising a family. Much of our culture teaches our children that divided families are ok. Although the brown family deals with a single family issue, they are never truly single. God provided a father figure when it was needed. What a legacy!
In these times structure can also be seen as negative. It was very encouraging to see structure in the home. The brown family exudes with love during trying times. Instilling discipline early resulted in life principles that has catapulted their daughters success in life. This a true testimony of how God can work in the lives of your children when you let him lead.
Their father, Wilbert Brown Jr. has truly fulfilled Ephesians 5. This world needs more stable Godly role models such as him. Men who courageously lead their families in a Godly manner.
Excellent!! May 6, 2008
I read the book in one day. Karen Brown-Cooper is an excellent storyteller. The way she connected scripture to everyday life lessons is amazing. It is a wonderful read, even for someone without a Bible based background. It actually makes you want to get the Bible out and read more about the Bible passages she refers to in the book. The dedication and faith this family displayed is impressive. It is clear "The Word" is not just words but a way of life when you are "Growing up Brown".
