Publisher's Description

Starting a family is a soul-shaping, world-altering experience. Unfortunately, in a culture of competing values and protracted timelines, couples are increasingly backing their way into parenting or missing it altogether. By the time the average couple tries to have kids, they are often beyond their late twenties and surprised to learn they are sliding past the peak of their fertile years.

In Start Your Family, Steve and Candice Watters encourage couples to be intentional about their timeline in the early years of marriage and to trust God to help them boldly launch their families. Responding to the most common doubts and hurdles, they offer biblical inspiration for the questions:  Why have kids?  When is the best time to start?   How can we fit kids into our lives?

    Though I felt it targeted Generation X, as a Gen Y'er 'Start your Family' opened my eyes to the conditioning I've received from society to think of parenthood as optional and to think that the convenience factor should be the deciding factor as to when you start having children. I also liked the chapter that dealt with reconciling with your parents to give your children the gift of grandparents. Hard to hear but good to do! Although I found some of the arguments compelling I was still left wanting more answers than this book could give. But for sure this is not your mothers How to Start Your Family book! It was an easy read and thought-provoking.

    I purchased this book for my son and daughter-in-law who were looking for guidance in making the decision to start their family. They have both remarked about how the author must be "just like them". They are really identifying with the male/female comments respectively and it is helping to solidify their future plans.Thank you for having just the right tool that they were looking for to guide them.
