Wonderful for families
June 4, 2013
Written as part of the Experiencing God series, this book encourages families to bring God into the home and fully experience His rich blessings. Two brothers wrote the book together and bring lots of personal stories and experiences into their writing. It's well written, with a beautiful and practical message for parents.
I enjoyed reading this book, but also learned quite a bit that I plan to incorporate into our home. This is definitely a book I'll be keeping. I would highly recommend this book for families.
I received this book free of charge from Shelton Interactive in exchange for my honest review.

This book is part of the Experiencing God series that is written for specific target audiences. Using the same 7 principles familiar to those who have read the original book by Henry Blackaby, his sons now speak to parents on how to use those principles to raise children in homes that honor God and are God-centered. Briefly, the 7 steps they cover are God is always at work around you, God pursues a love relationship with you, God invites you to become involved with Him in His work, God speaks by the Holy Spirit, God's invitation leads to a crisis of belief, you must make adjustments, and you come to know God by experience as you obey Him and He accomplishes His work through you.
Filled with a lot of anecdotal stories of personal experiences and examples from the Bible, the emphasis is on the importance of a parent's involvement in a child's life. Listening to your offspring and taking time to answer is vital from an early age so the pattern is already established as your child grows older and has more important decisions to make. I especially liked the 'Questions for Reflection/Discussion' at the end of the chapters. These make this book useful for personal use, but also beneficial for small group study. I think this is a great book for anybody who is raising a family. Mine are grown, but I still got something out of the book. Even if you don't have children or grandchildren, there may be young people in your life that you do have influence with and who come to you for advice.
