    I remember those TV families of the 1950s. The dad was a strong but compassionate father, the mother stayed at home, and all the kids worked together and got along well. Is it possible to have families like that today?

    Keesee says it is. To have that kind of family, however, one must have the principles that go along with it. She has written this book to share the vintage family model and the principles that make is possible.

    There is a great deal of information in this book that modern families could use. We start by focusing on what really matters. There is an emphasis of turning to God and focusing on Him. He has the wisdom needed so we must prioritize a relationship with Him. We must also understand how Satan is working to destroy the family.

    The four building blocks Keesee uses are discipline, love, faith, and example. She has a great chapter on discipline, why it is needed, and how it can be done in today's society. It is not a popular topic today but it has the power to make or break a family she says. She gives plenty of suggestions on how to establish discipline and stick with it.

    I really liked her section on example. Kids model what they see and they should be seeing evidence of God in our lives. Keesee home schooled so her children saw their parents and how they lived their lives every day. Part of that was an entrepreneurial spirit and the children grew up being involved in the parent's business. There is a chapter emphasizing how that worked in their family.

    Developing a family the way God designed it to be will not happen by accident. I can tell from reading this book that parents must put much prayer, thought, and action into it. It takes work to set boundaries and stick with them. It takes conscious effort to model the kind of adult you want your children to be.

    This book is not a how to manual for developing a godly family. It is a revelation of how the Keesee family did it with plenty of stories and examples of how principals work. You'll still need to decide whether to home school or not, whether to allow your kids to date or to encourage courting, etc.

    I recommend this book for parents of all ages - there is even a chapter on grand parenting and one for the parent of a prodigal. Reading this book is an encouragement. It is possible to develop a family the way God intended, raising godly adults. Reading this book will help you get on the right path.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Son Studios for the purpose of an independent and honest review

    Drenda Keesee in her new book, "The New Vintage Family" published by Free Indeed Publishers gives us A Vintage Look for the Modern-Day Family.

    From the Back Cover: Family is not outdated! But can it still be done well?

    In The New Vintage Family, Drenda shows you how to embrace Gods design for family, and how to refashion your family while pursuing your destiny together. In a world that has traded the ability to mentor children Gods way for a world of fast-paced instant gratification, we need real answers to the modern day struggles we face as parents.

    Drenda combines her wit, humorous stories, and dynamic teaching to equip you with the tools you need to make parenting fun again. Learn to use the four pillars of family, to effectively communicate, and to fit the pieces of family mentorship, business, and home life together for success.

    Starting with Adam and Eve The Family has always been the foundation on which tradition and values were to be passed down. Lots of elements, television, our fast-paced society take our time with our children away from us and leave the mentoring elsewhere. Ms. Keesee sees this as a challenge and has provided us the tools that we need to reclaim our ability to mentor our own children. There are four pillars of family: 1: The Modern Family...Recognizing The Problem, 2: A Vintage Life...Principles That Will Change Your Family Life, 3: Your Vintage Family...The Dynamics That Make It Work, 4: Your Vintage Legacy...Navigating To The Finish Line. Once we understand how God designed The Family then all these pillars fall into place. Ms. Keesee is not dogmatic even with a lot to say and she is fun. She lays out the foundation for parenting and then provides the necessary tools. At the end of most chapters questions are presented for us to think about and answer. I recommend answering these questions before moving on to the next chapter. At the back of the book she provides: For more tips, resources, and downloads visit The Vintage Family.org/bonus. I think Ms. Keesee has given us a great resource! I also think this would be a great gift to family and friends to help them with the tools they need for their parenting.
