This book isn’t just for minister’s families, of course, but I believe every minister's wife should read it. How to Build a Strong Christian Home blessed, encouraged, and inspired me as a mom, and renewed my vision as a pastor’s wife. An excellent resource for every family library!
In fact, my favorite chapter of the book may be the chapter on "The Imperfect Home." June clearly reminds us that no home or family is perfect, and is in fact filled with sinners! However, even when we fall short and fail to be perfect mothers with perfect homes, God can redeem even our weaknesses and failures and transform our homes and families by His grace into a source of beauty and blessing!
That's why this book is so encouraging -- while it gives many wise exhortations and practical steps for creating a godly home -- it doesn't rely on our efforts alone but on the unfathomable grace of God!
Highly Recommended Reading for ALL Christian wives and mothers! This book contains short, but meaty, chapters that can easily be read during little snatches of time squeezed out of a busy mothe'rs day! There are also Challenge questions at the end of each chapter to help make practical application.
Those who grew up in a Christian family can easily take their rich heritage for granted and imitate the traditions of their parents simply because they don’t know any different. First generation Christians (such as the author herself), have their work cut out for them in a different sense. What is the role of the husband? What does biblical submission look like? Does the Bible say anything about education? How can I leave a legacy for my children and what should that look like?
How To Build A Strong Christian Home is an exegesis of the Biblical prescription for home life that Christian families on every stage of the journey would benefit from reading. It explores the role of husbands, wives, parents, children, the family’s place within the local church and how it ought to function within society. Patterning our habits in the home after those we find in God’s Word is an essential part of Christian living, and this eBook is a helpful resource for those who yearn to live a holy life in dependence on God’s grace.
I love how she clearly points out that none of us are perfect parents, and none of us have perfect homes. However, with the help of God, and with His grace, He can use our imperfections to help us grow more like Him, and depend on Him.
Some of my favorite parts of the book are the reminders and tips about supporting our husbands, and her words of exhortation about not being robbed of the simple joys of life. Chapter 6 talks about teaching God's Word in our homes, and shepherding the hearts of our kids. Those two things are SO foundational to all that we do as parents. It's something we probably know, but can always be reminded of!
For me the biggest challenge was the reminder of where MY heart is as a mom. It's not enough to work to win my kids' hearts; it starts with my heart being turned toward them.
"We must understand that ministry is taking care of our families, and we must guard it with all that we have."
What a great resource for keeping us challenged and excited about the wonderful opportunity we have to bring our children up in the strong, Christian home.
