:Many of us feel overwhelmed about the prospect of raising children, especially if we're in demanding jobs or having to deal with the pressures and stresses from everyday lives. Reflecting on difficulties from our own families of origin can increase our doubt and insecurity about being a good parent. And 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 towards a thriving family. Now more than ever, we need a new vision for family that is creative, intentional, soulful, and culturally aware. This book offers just that. Its goal is a strong, enriched family where each member is loved and supported to become all they were made to be, and enabled to thrive.
