Building a Family of Faith: Simple and Fun Devotions to Draw You Close to Each Other and Nearer to God

We rated this book:


We live in strange times; today’s culture believes everyone has their own “truths” and beliefs about everything. When it comes to being blessed with a family, be prepared for people left and right to be “offering” their opinions or knowledge about the best way to raise the kiddos. Andy Dooley, leader, pastor, and fitness professional, is a family man who understands how trying to live a Christian life can be much more challenging than going with the grain of secular beliefs and lifestyles.

In Building a Family of Faith, Dooley mentions fifty-two topics and shares the Christian view of them with a Bible passage, diving slightly deeper into the passage’s meaning while relating it to real-life examples, what we can learn from it, a question or two to think about, a short prayer, and several activities or extra things to try with the family to reinforce the topic.

Dooley discusses worldly issues, such as practicing patience, self-control, losing pride, appreciating your family, and mental health, to name just a few. Each issue is explained from a life scenario of the author but ultimately ties back to how to “draw you close to each other and nearer to God.”
