You're willing to do whatever it takes to ground your children in a faith your parents never embraced. Or maybe you grew up in an outwardly religious home that lacked a foundation of Christian grace and moral values. If you're the first generation in your family to embrace a relationship with Christ but aren't sure how to give your children a foundation of faith, find guidance in BUILDING THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY YOU NEVER HAD.

Author Mary E. DeMuth understands firsthand the fears, frustrations, and anxieties of those who lack role models of faith-based parenting. In BUILDING THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY YOU NEVER HAD she provides needed encouragement, practical tools, and crucial strategies. You'll learn how you can. . .

* shield your children from the negative influence of family members who undermine your values
* cope with criticism and objections to your faith-based parenting decisions
* honour (and forgive) your parents without endorsing their behaviour
* find positive parenting mentors

This inspiring, down-to-earth guide will enable you to provide a spiritual legacy of security and strength for your children as you lead the way through BUILDING THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY YOU NEVER HAD.
