Total Family Makeover

Train children in the way they should go; when they grow old, they won’t depart from it. —Proverbs 22:6

God calls us as parents to be key disciple-makers in our children’s lives, but if we’re honest, some days it’s a battle just to get them dressed and ready for school on time. How can you mold their hearts when sometimes you can’t even find their shoes?

In Total Family Makeover, author Melissa Spoelstra gives parents a way—a sort of spiritual track to run on—when it comes to building family discipleship. She focuses on eight key habits of growth:

—Spending Time in Prayer

—Reading God’s Word

—Growing Through a Mentoring Relationship

—Finding Community in the Church

—Serving Others

—Taking Time to Rest

—Giving Back to God

—Sharing Your Faith

Disciples are made, not born. Whether your children are babes in arms or teenagers getting ready to leave the nest, making disciples at home starts with you! Give your family a makeover with this practical approach to helping your children learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

This book is so awesome and so necessary for families! I think sometimes, we get so busy living life that we forget the most important things. We want what is best for our families, but sometimes we just don’t know where to start or how. This is where Total Family Makeover comes to the rescue! This book lays out simple, do-able,  yet absolutely necessary steps and ideas for the spiritual growth of our families. Not only does the author share personal stories and experiences from her own life, but she also backs up her techniques with Scripture. Parenting does not come with a manual but next to the Bible, this book is a great resource for families. As I read, I was encouraged, inspired, convicted and excited to incorporate the things I learned into my own family. This is one book you are not going to want to miss!!!
