The Most Important Place on Earth Jan 17, 2007
This book is an absolute must for any Christian home. I love it!
I'll read this again... Jan 11, 2007
I loved this book, so much that I'm buying it for gifts! Written with the traditional family in mind, Robert Wolgumuth uses honest,personal examples & stories from his own life to illustrate much needed do's and don't's for successful family relationships. Along with the Biblical references and explanations, this book is a "must own" encouragement for every family. Reading it was like talking with a friend. I was deeply moved.
Uplifting, encouraging and challenging - great read. Jun 26, 2006
An absolutely outstanding read - very uplifting, very challenging. Author of She Calls Me Daddy!, Wolgemuth explores the various unique elements that make a Christian home different than just any other home. While the book has many practical suggestions that Wolgemuth shares from his own experience (good and bad), the primary emphasis of this book is to get the reader to feel, not think, about the importance of the Christian home. Wolgemuth begins with the smell of a Christian home - the aroma that brings back memories of family, food and fellowship within the home. He talks about the words that are used in the home - how they need to be encouraging, loving and tender. And he talks about the home being a safe place, one where children feel like they can be themselves, even if that isn't always perfect.
Wolgemuth probably says in the book a dozen times that he's "old school," and he is. He believes that the family ought to sit down for dinner together, he believes that electronic devices (TV, video games, etc) disrupt family conversation time and result in disconnected children, and he believes that the parents should view themselves as the "priests" of their home. I guess I would have to say that I'm "old school" as well and wish that more people would be!
Wolgemuth is also very honest about his own learning curve as a parent and gives numerous examples of where he blew it as a dad and a husband. The book is an excellent read - slows down a little in the final couple of chapters, but still one of the best books I've read on the importance of the home and the family...especially in our culture today!
A book rich with motivating encouragement for the home Jun 3, 2006
I am only halfway through this book, not because it is a tough read, but because everytime I pick it up, I read something that calls me to get up and go do something. This book is so rich (the best word I can use to describe it). The author, Robert Wolgemuth, uses a very casual tone and talks about what works to build a Christian home in everyway. It really is motivating and it gives good reminders and habits to practice everyday. I would recommend this to new parents, old parents, and basically anyone who comes in contact with children who want to be of Christian influence. Wonderful! I will try to read it every year.
A "must have" for any family wanting to have a christian home. Mar 26, 2006
From the very first page in chapter one "Why a Christian Home?", Robert Wolgemuth captures the readers attention to the value of being a believer and practicing ones faith as a testimony to your family, neighbors, friends and others. Mr. Wolgemuth discusses in 223 pages (10 chapters) the essentials of a home where Gods' essence is there to witness to those who enter the home, "there is something different about this place". Chapters cover topics on bringing your children to Christ, how to help them memorize scripture, and how to see "by example" what being a christian truely is. Even those without children are benefited with powerful testimonies throughout the book, counsel on how to work with your mate. I wish I had had this book some 30 years ago when we were first married. A Spirit filled and moving book, needed in every home now days.
