Book Review - Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter

About the Book
Creative ideas, real-life stories, and Scriptural guidance for being the family that loves being together.

Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter is the second in the Faithful Family series where Dave applies his practical, conversational, and humorous approach to the challenge of building strong spiritual ties to each other as a family. Topics include: Contentment, Security, Loyalty, Gratitude, Spontaneity, Communication, and more.

Preaching is his gift, but Pastor Dave Stone's family is his life's blessing. And after raising three kids of his own, as well as shepherding the diverse families of his congregation, his heart and passion for building strong families rings louder than ever. He knows that raising faithful families is a key to the future of the church.

Parents can follow easy, practical suggestions that will transform their families such as:

  • creating a family mission statement 
  • practicing intentional spontaneity 
  • pledging to enjoy family dinners together on a regular basis 
It’s never too soon, or too late, to begin applying the tried and true wisdom this veteran of building strong families has to share.

My Take on the Book
Any parent hopes for a family that runs smoothly without strife, anger, resentment or any other negative issues arising, but inevitably these issues do rear their heads every now and again , and in some families more than others. This book takes a look at how you can do your best to bring your family together and build memories that will last a lifetime. The book is completely practical and easy to read. You can easily get through the entire book in a very short amount of time, and when you are done you have so many resources and tricks that you have been given to try with your own family. What I loved best about the book were the stories that were shared. Most of the stories were very touching and even humorous, but more together, they showed families working, and these examples are ones that can help families that are struggling come back from the edge of crisis (if they are there) or more into an even keel. This was a great book that I would highly recommend!
