About this item
We need to renew our imagination for what family life can be.Many of us feel terrified about the prospect of raising children in our pressure-cooker society, even as we intuitively recognize the value and potential of the family. Reflecting on the failures or missteps of our own parents can add to the doubt and insecurity we face. We may also lack positive examples of what a family can look like.Mark and Lisa Scandrette understand these challenges, and in Belonging and Becoming they cast a vision of what the family can be. They offer wisdom from the joys and struggles of their own family life and give practical, step-by-step advice for making incremental changes toward a healthier 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 and instruct you toward a richer, more deeply rooted family life.Now more than ever, we badly need a new vision of the potential for joy and abundance in the sacrifices inherent in parenting. This interactive book offers just that. Its goal is a thriving family, where each family member feels connected, accepted for who they are, and encouraged to become all they were made to be.
