Building Family Ties with Faith, Love & Laughter by Dave Stone ~ Book Review

A few weeks back, an online friend mentioned that her pastor had written a new book and it was available for review.  I checked into it and thought the book looked interesting so I decided to get it.

From the Publisher:  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. 

My Thoughts:  This book was a quick and inspiring read with encouraging advice for any family.  Dave starts off by describing "The Joyful Christian Family."  The family who is in danger of becoming an endangered species...succumbing to all the pressures of daily life...entertainment, sports, music, extracurricular activities, all draining us of our excitement and spirit.  Are we having fun anymore?  How do we find that joy again? 

Do you feel this way sometimes?  I know I do!!

Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter gives great tips and ideas to help families find the right direction for them.  I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to all families, regardless of the stage of life they are in.
