Many feel bombarded by images and experiences of broken families. This is not how God intended families to be! So often we examine the traits of unhealthy families, but Gary Chapman paints a biblical portrait of what a loving, stable family looks like. This books is not just to be read, but experienced. Chapman details five timeless characteristics that create a healthy family environment:
- An attitude of service
- Intimacy between husband and wife
- Parents who teach and train
- Children who obey and honor parents
- Husbands who are loving leaders
In Dr. Chapman's own words, "What happens to your family does make a difference not only to you and your children, but to the thousands of young observers who are in search of a functional family."
