Total Family Makeover
8 Practical Steps to Making Disciples at Home
Melissa Spoelstra
The most important job as Christian parents is to guide our children towards a relationship with Christ. But often the mundane tasks of life and trying to stay on top of everything gets in the way of the more important things. The author has created a guideline of sorts that will aid parents as they journey through parenting and help them mold disciples for Christ. Each chapter begins with some thoughts on one of the steps toward making disciples. The author uses scripture and personal stories to guide the reader.  The rest of the chapter is divided up into sections labeled modeling and training. There are practical suggestions for implementing the steps into your home. The chapter ends with discussion questions and a lot more scripture.

First - the cover is adorable and definitely  made me want to pick up the book. Second, I loved the author's writing style. She made the information interesting. Her practical advice wasn't overwhelming and I finished feeling encouraged and inspired. While I read the book by myself, I can totally see this being used in a parenting or women's study group. The discussion question really made me think and I loved all of the scripture she used to back up her thoughts. I would definitely recommend this book to any parent who wants a little guidance in the area of making disciples.

I received this book free of charge from Litfuse. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions are my own.
