Publisher's Description

Make your home a safe place where trust is built and hope is restored.

God created families as the most basic building blocks of his church. Of course, every family looks different: some with grandparents sharing space, others with adult children at home, many with just one parent, and some with only a husband and wife. No matter the makeup, there are bound to be underlying conflicts, personality differences, and sometimes even serious dysfunction.

Even in these imperfect families, we can find refuge for our battle-weary souls. Within the confines of our homes, we can find rest from the stresses of life if we have fostered an atmosphere of uplifting conversation, supportive prayer, and reliance upon God.
