I need all the tips I can get to help keep my family running smoothly. When I came across Total Family Makeover: 8 Practical Steps to Making Disciples at Home, I knew I just had to read it. I love how there are tips throughout the book and each chapter ends in a spiritual phrase along with an exercising question. There were some great pieces of advice I could incorporate with my family that I knew they could adapt to. I would suggest reading this book if you have young kids to get them trained at a young age about how to work together as a family thru Christ.

About the Book

God calls us as parents to be key disciple-makers in our children’s lives, but if we’re honest, some days it’s a battle just to get them dressed and ready for school on time. How can you mold their hearts when sometimes you can’t even find their shoes?

In Total Family Makeover, author Melissa Spoelstra gives parents a way—a sort of spiritual track to run on—when it comes to building family discipleship. She focuses on eight key habits of growth:

-Spending Time in Prayer
-Reading God’s Word
-Growing Through a Mentoring Relationship
-Finding Community in the Church
-Serving Others
-Taking Time to Rest
-Giving Back to God

-Sharing Your Faith

Disciples are made, not born. Whether your children are babes in arms or teenagers getting ready to leave the nest, making disciples at home starts with you! Give your family a makeover with this practical approach to helping your children learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
