Spiritual defibrillator for your family…. Very good.

Jeff is young but blessed with wisdom for his generation and many others. Take 2 hours to listen and implement the core focus of this book and your family will be grateful and the Lord will be glorified.

Don’t waste your money / time

It’s clear this author has leftists views and doesn’t really understand traditional family life/values. If your a selfish person who leans hard left you may be able to relate but if you have traditional morals and family views you’ll have to suffer through many straw man and will leave you waiting for the end.

Everyone needs to read this!

I don't say this lightly: everyone needs to read this book!
Wow!
I love the thought behind it, the way it's so well researched and how Jeff includes real life examples, via Spotlighting a family!

This book is brilliant.
God written all over it!
My heart longs for this type of family structure, as my family stands, it's going to be one of the most difficult things to partner with God for our restoration, but I feel hope and am up to it, knowing that out there, many share this God vision and are doing life this way!

There were two repeated sentences that may have been missed during editing, but still worth every cent!

I 100% recommend it!
I was so sad when I got to end!

Packed of wisdom & truth

We are a young family , first generation on my side to raise God fearing children . This blew me away and will be implementing the “team” concept . This book is a prayer answered and a guide on how to raise a United family that will impact generations to come .

Rethink what “family” means

Ive already told my husband he has to read (or listen) to this book, it will definitely make you think about what a family means to you. Bethke does an amazing job writing and narrating this audiobook. I would highly recommend.

Better than anticipated

I was interested in the subject matter as a young mum but sceptical about how relatable it would be for us not living in the US. But I loved the personal stories, the well researched chapters and the practical tips and ideas to use and practise in your family. I plan to read it again when I need inspiration for a family huddle. Grateful to the author for writing this timely book for this generation.
