Building Strong Homes

Family Strategies: Practical Issues for Building Healthy Families (20 Audio Messages)

Starts March 1st I am really looking forward to this. Here is  some information from the Vision Forum Website.

strat-e-gies: The art of devising or employing plans or stratagems toward a goal.
If you are a Christian parent living in the twenty-first century, you need to think strategically about your family. Settling for the priorities and practices of the world is a proven formula for disaster. As parents, we must do more than settle. We must self-consciously choose. This requires strategic biblical thinking. It means self-consciously building your family culture. And whether the subject is entertainment choices, home d├ęcor, travel, music in the home, or dealing with antagonistic relatives, it means that wise, Scripturally-informed parents must think creatively as they aggressively engage impediments and obstacles to success.
