“If the fear of God is the concrete in the foundation of the home, thanksgiving is the drywall, the furnishings, and the window coverings of the home! We thank the Lord for one another, precious souls loved by Christ and saved by His blood. We experience a perpetual relief from sins forgiven, divine reconciliation, and an acceptance into the family of God. We are thankful for each blessing, each relationship, every and all evidences of life (spiritual and physical), our eternal inheritance, God’s majestic creation, the water, the sun, the air we breathe, physical protection, and every sign of His kingdom."
I've read a number of books on the family as my young family continues to grow. Amidst the piles of works written to gain either the pay or the applause of people, there are a handful of books that start with the Bible, and teach from there, rather than teaching first and slapping a misappropriated Bible verse or passage on as support. Swanson has written one of those faithful few here. However, be warned, [Family Life] is written to be faithful not popular, which means it will not fit well in the mind of those who are comfortable in the pop-Christianity pseudo-church of modern evangelicalism. Read at your own risk.

[Building a Godly Home] is a wonderful, simple [but not an easy] read on what God intended for the home and family. It is a message that all Christians need to hear in a culture that has defined the family many ways.
Tedd Tripp knows what he is talking about and who he is talking to. He knows children, he knows parents…and he knows the ways of God. [Shepherding a Child's Heart] teaches you what your goals should be and how to pursue these ends practically. It teaches you how to talk to your children and what to talk about. It will inspire you to become a different kind of parent. This is a masterful book.
