Summer Book Club: A Family of Your Own

From the LYWB Blog Team: Congrats! You made it to the end of our Summer Book Club study, Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back) by Jessie Minassian. Wasn’t this great book packed with serious truth and solid advice? We hope you’ve learned a whole bunch of lessons this summer that will help you love your family well. Remember: loving your family = honoring God! And if you missed out on this year’s book club, we’d still love to see you get your hands on a copy of Family. Be sure to enter the giveaway at the end of this post!

I don’t know about you, but I’m having trouble accepting that summer is coming to a close! Nevertheless, I do hope this final chapter, “A Family of Your Own,” sparked hope and excitement in your heart as you dreamed about the ways you might use all that God has taught you about family this summer in your future family someday (if getting married and raising kids is God’s “best gift” to you).

Let’s chat!

I’ve had a blast leading the Summer Book Club and learning with you this summer! Thanks for joining me and for all your great comments and questions.

For our last discussion, I’d love to hear how your view of family, or your own family dynamics, has changed since the beginning of the summer, as you’ve chosen to love your family well. See you in the comments!

Here’s to taking all that we’ve learned and choosing to invest in our families intentionally, becoming more like Christ in the process. Amen?

It’s time for the last Summer Book Club giveaway! The last copy of Family is up for grabs. Log in to the giveaway widget and answer the discussion question in the comments below to enter.
