The first chapter was a bit hard to read but afterwards I couldn't put the book down. This book is also encouraging not to be afraid of struggles, misunderstandings and the hard things in life, that come through husband/wife relationship, parents/children, father/son, siblings, different generations...she gives insight and wisdom how to master it without a stiffness and dead religion but with compassion, picking up our cross, and sacrifices, loving God and the world around us. She describes the difficult moments where we know we are supposed to serve and be humble but when we can't because of our immaturity and pride. Honesty! and asking for forgiveness and forgiving, ... in daily life
Are you trying to raise kids that will have a solid relationship with God as adults? Then this book will help you. The chapter on Family: A Perpetual Relay of Truth alone is worth the price of the book.
