For The Familys Sake   -     
        By: Susan Schaeffer Macaulay
For The Familys Sake
By Susan Schaeffer Macaulay / Crossway Books & Bibles

For many of us, the word home brings warm thoughts and happy memories-far more than the dictionary's simple definitions of "a place of birth or one's living quarters." It is the secure environment that allows our hearts to develop. A haven of growth, quiet and rest. The place where we love and are loved. Sadly, though, this kind of home is beginning to disappear as our busy society turns homes into houses where related people abide, but where there is no "heart." With Jesus Christ as the foundation, using tools such as commmon sense, realism and traditions, you can build a secure living environment where every member of your family can flourish.
