Many of us feel overwhelmed about the prospect of raising children in
our high-performance, rapid-pace culture. Reflecting on difficulties
from our own families of origin can increase our doubt and insecurity
about being a good parent. Positive examples of family life can seem few
and far between.
Mark and Lisa Scandrette understand these challenges,
and in Belonging and Becoming they cast a compelling vision of
what the family can be. They offer wisdom from the joys and struggles
of their own life, and practical guidance for creating a healthy and
deeply rooted family culture. Whether you’ve been a parent for some
time, you're just starting out, or you're only starting to think about
it, this book will inspire you to take new steps toward family thriving.
Now more than ever, we need a new vision for family that is creative,
intentional, soulful, and globally aware. Whatever the make up of your
household, your family can be a space of belonging, where each person
feels safe, loved, cherished and cared for, and a place of becoming,
where each person is supported to to develop who they are for the good
of the world.
