My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Book Description: It has been decades since the family proclamation was first presented to members of the Church by President Gordon B. Hinckley. But despite the passage of time, the counsel provided in the family proclamation is ever more vital in these tumultuous last days. Creating Your Forever Family is an indispensable resource, providing practical application of the nine principles outlined in the family proclamation. Featuring counsel from Church leaders and stories of these principles in action, this book offers ways to incorporate these values into everyday life, from interview questions designed to help kids open up to the game night ideas to fun family dinner conversation starters. Families will be strengthened as each member gets involved in the discussions and applications. Now is the time to fortify families and truly embrace the principles of this great proclamation.
My thoughts: Creating Your Forever Family takes a closer look at nine principles found in The Family: A Proclamation to the World. The principles are: faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.
This book does a great job at discussing how to incorporate these principles in the home and gives ideas how to help children understand them. Rachel Sullivan uses quotes from leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as well as scripture references to make her points. I found some concepts and quotes that I really needed and some that I shared with my son serving a mission.
I found this book to be uplifting and informative. I did do some skimming, so it didn't completely capture my attention. This book is written mainly for families with young children. I am past that, but felt that this book had information that could be utilized for all family dynamics.
This book is written specifically to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
