"Provides help for families who want to honor the Lord through structure in their homes. The Hughes family, though they are not perfect (and they are the first to attest to that fact), speak from their own spiritual experience and growth. We are fortunate that they share their insights so others can profit."

I wish I would have read this book years ago when my kids were still young. It was an easy read with great practical advice to help you raise kids that love God.Published 17 months ago by Deborah K. Carter

A great summary of the biblical view of family. Using it in a Sunday school class we are finding that it captures the fundamentals of Christian Family Living.Published on December 27, 2011 by L. D. Russell
