Summer Book Club: The Family Secret

From the LYWB blog team: Happy Monday to our amazing readers! Thanks for kicking off the 2018 Summer Book Club with us. We hope you’ll grab a copy of Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back) for yourself and start reading one chapter each week! (PS: These chapters aren’t big and scary—they’re like chatting with a big sis who has lots of practical tips and biblical truth to share!) Let’s dive right in.

Welcome to the 2018 Summer Book Club!

I’m so honored to return to the Lies Young Women Believe blog to be your host through my book Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back).

Whether you’re determined to deepen your family relationships this summer or just looking to survive more time with your parents and siblings, I hope you’ll join me on this journey of learning to love your family well (and make it easier for them to like being around you in return).

So without further adieu, let’s dive into chapter one!

Don’t forget to join the comments below to answer these questions:

  • What do you hope to accomplish in reading through this book?
  • What do you hope to see change in your family—or in you—this summer?

I hope you enjoy chapter two of Family: How to Love Yours and Help Them Like You Back, “Dreams, Meet Diaper Rash.” I’ll see you again next Monday for another installment of our Summer Book Club!
