Shaping Your Family's Faith
One Family's Story of Growing Strong Together
Meet the Millstones, a nice, average Christian family. Jason and Sarah and their three children are just the sort of 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. The Millstones want to blame their church. After all, isn't the church responsible for their children's spiritual development? But a surprise adventure in the Fiji Islands and a chance encounter in which Jason becomes a hero may change the way the Millstones relate to each other and to God.
In this engaging story, you'll discover such practical concepts as: Family changes can be good, but are often painful, how to help your child craft a moral compass, responsibility for your child's faith is not the church's, marriage requires constant maintenance, crisis can be opportunity, actions speak louder than words, love for your children and spouse means commitment and sacrifice.
In these pages, parents will find practical, biblical solutions for helping their children develop a strong, lasting faith while enjoying the adventures of the Millstone family.
