Families Where Grace Is In Place: by Jeff Van Vonderenl
Author: Jeff Van Vonderen
|Building a Grace-Filled Marriage and Raising Creative, Contented, Capable Children Without Legalism or Manipulation.|
You put your best effort toward having a good Christian marriage and raising good Christian kids, but you often end up feeling less-than-perfect—more like a failure. Why is that?
Jeff VanVonderen, a board-registered counselor who regularly appears on A&E's reality television series Intervention, believes that the letdown comes from focusing too much on controlling others' behavior and attitudes. When people spend their lives trying to transform or "fix" their spouses and their kids, the natural result is exhaustion, depression, and an overall sense of hopelessness.
Here is a message about how God's grace can transform these relationships. The key is learning the difference between God's job and ours. God's job is to fix; our job is to depend on Him as we nurture and encourage our families. By discovering God's plan for your family and following the example of His grace, you'll learn the importance of controlling yourself so your family can be all it can be.
This practical and insightful discussion of grace, which includes a study guide for small groups and individuals, is one you won't want to miss.
