Families will be strengthened as each member gets involved in the discussions and applications. Now is the time to fortify families and truly embrace the principles of this great proclamation.
MY REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
Although this book is specifically written for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, it is an excellent format for any Christian striving to raise a responsible, Christlike family in today's society. Using the Family Proclamation as a guideline, the author has itemized each step we can take as parents, to ensure our family is spiritually strong and Christlike as possible.
At the end of each chapter, there are questions to ensure the chapter is understood. At the end of the book are appendixes With further Questions and pointers to make sure the book in its entirety, is comprehended and made useful..
As a parent, we often feel overwhelmed with what we are counseled to do to be thorough and effective in our roles, entrusted us by a perfect Heavenly Father. However, we are not perfect. Life often results in illness, financial problems, economical problems in loss of work, etc.
As a young mother I often berated myself and felt hopeless because I was not able to do all the things I was taught in order to live as Christ would have me do.
I feel it is expedient authors realize this in writing. It is important individuals strive to do these things but realize if not all are attained, the important thing is that we keep striving to do our very best, plus more though God's help, then realize we are not perfect and the main point is to keep striving hard and never quit.
The Title is well-chosen and the Book Cover is nice but not very eye-catching to the
