Most likely you’re just like most anyone else. When the sky grows dark and a cold wind rattles the window of your life, you seek the refuge and warmth of relationships.
And that’s fine. For where else could we turn to? God created us for relationships. Two of these involve that of the husband-wife tie (marriage) and the parent-child link (parenting).
Different people see marriage in different ways—heaven, a lottery, a monopoly, a bargain, a tomb, hell. Others see it as “a fever on the reverse—starting out hot and ending up cold.” Or as a bird cage. “Those outside the cage, they observe, want to get in as quickly as they can. But once inside, they desperately want to dash out!”
However, marriage can cope with perverted perceptions so rampant today. And the Christian marriage can be all that God designed it to be.
And so can the home. Have you ever wondered why Jesus, God’s only begotten Son, was lodged in a home with parents and siblings while here on earth? Why not in a school? Or in a temple?
“Home,” says the author, “is God’s intended place for passing on the foundation of our value system, of character building.” In this book, she tells you how that’s done.
