30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family

I just read 30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family, by Rebecca Hagelin.

30 Ways in 30 Days to Save Your Family

My wife actually got this book from our library for herself, and I got hooked as I flipped through it out of curiosity.  This is how I find many of my more edifying books.

I believe that successful parents, and successful husbands, get that way by trying to get better.   We need to read good material and talk with good people who have more experience than we do.  Even after we know it all, there is great value in reading, learning, and evaluating.  We have so many opportunities and very busy lives.  Our children grow and change, and we must change our rules and parenting strategies to adjust.

Every time I read a book like this, it reminds me of what I already know I should be doing. If it gives me a motivational boost and causes me to evaluate our situations and strategy, that’s a good thing, right?

This book is organized into 30 short suggestions (the “30 days”). Each section has a challenge (problem), suggestions and encouragement, and a call to action, followed by a sidebar with additional helpful resources.  This format makes it easy to read in bite size chunks, or to pick and choose.  All made sense, but not all were really applicable to our family.  This book is an easy read and is certain to have a few gems for your family.

A handful of these suggestions were particularly meaningful to me — I will write more about a few of those in the coming week or so.
