The saying goes that you can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family. How true! And in these candid stories about families and childhood you will see not only functional and dysfunctional families, but you will see how the actions we take as parents can have generational influences and how they can affect not only yourself, but those around you for lifetimes to come. These wonderful books hold a mirror to us and to our actions, and let us learn more about ourselves, what we belief, and ultimately how what we believe and the way we act on it will in fact setup a chain of actions that can sometimes have a surprising outcome.
Take hope from these stories though, because we are not all victims that sit passively by. Even years after, we can make choices and break bad behavioral patterns, and Christ Jesus, who strengthens and comforts us, will show us how to change, learn and grow.
