In The Mission-Minded Family Ann Dunagan, a homeschooling mother of seven and an international minister alongside her husband, challenges the idea that family life and missionary work are incompatible. When a parent is engaged in missionary work, children need not suffer neglect. They can be a part of the missionary work along with their parents, as a family entity. The book suggests family activities for developing a mission-minded family and the necessity of balancing and prioritizing daily activities.
In a mission-minded family, there's a God-infused energy. There's a focus on God's worldwide purpose and there's a passion for the lost. There's a spiritual depth and hunger that reaches beyond the maintenance mode of cultural Christianity. A mission-minded family emphasizes leadership, calling and destiny. There's a prevailing attitude of self-sacrifice and an emphasis on total submission to God's will. There's an unmistakable and contagious joy. Dunagan, who wrote The Mission-Minded Child, brings the same perspective to what it means to be a mission-minded family. This book includes suggested activities for families to participate in together as well as resources to help families develop the desire to be more missions-focused. She discusses the need for families to balance and prioritize their everyday lives and delves into what a family's finances would look like if they were focused on missions. This practical book is the perfect companion to The Mission-Minded Child. Families who read and practice principles from this book will receive a rekindled closeness as they participate in ministry together.
