Read full description of the books The Family You've Always Wanted: Five Ways You Can Make It Happen:Is your family all that it could be?
Many feel bombarded by images and experiences of broken families, but this is not how God intended families to be!
So often we examine the traits of unhealthy families, but Gary Chapman paints a biblical portrait of what a loving, stable family looks like. He details five timeless characteristics that create a healthy family environment:
A heart for service
Husbands and wives who relate intimately
Parents who guide their children
Children who obey and honor their parents
Husbands who love and lead
In Dr. Chapman's own words, "What happens to your family does make a difference not only to you and your children, but to the thousands of young observers who are in search of a functional family."
This book is not merely for reading, but for living. Experience God's design for family.
