Sometimes parables communicate truths better than any self-help book. Meet the Millstones. Jason and Sarah and their three children are just the sort of Christian folks you'd want for next-door neighbors. Or so it seems. As the story unfolds, the "good" family takes some wrong turns. Petty theft, online affairs, bad lifestyle choices, and troubling attitudes show that things are far from well in the Millstone family. As the pages turn, readers discover practical concepts such as change can be good but is often painful; marriage requires constant maintenance; crisis can be opportunity; actions speak louder than words; and love for your children and spouse means commitment and sacrifice. As they follow the parable of the Millstone family, readers will see these truths illuminated in a fresh new way that will help them strengthen their own marriage and family.
