A Vintage Look for the Modern-Day Family
SUMMARY: FAMILY IS NOT OUTDATED! BUT CAN IT STILL BE DONE WELL?
In The New Vintage Family, Drenda shows you how to embrace God's design for family and how to refashion your family while pursuing your destiny together. In a world that has traded the ability to mentor children God's way for a world of fast-paced instant gratification, we need real answers to the modern day struggles we face as parents.
Drenda combines her wit, humorous stories, and dynamic teaching to equip you with the tools you need to make parenting fun again. Learn to use the four pillars of family, to effectively communicate, and to fit the pieces of family mentorship, business, and home life together for success.
REVIEW: Family is not just something you do on the weekends and holidays, but every part of every day. Drenda includes stories from her husband and five kids about how they did life and business together. She and her husband, Gary, included their children in their business ventures, traveling across the United States in a camper when Gary had business trips. They home-schooled their children and had them help around the office, using each child's talents and strengths. She shows you that struggles are real but they can be weathered and overcome, whether it is a lost job, health issues or a wayward child when they are faced together.
As a parent of grown children, Drenda offers advice for all stages of life: from newlyweds to new parents, toddlers, pre-teens and teens, and empty nesters to grandparents. She shares bible verses and stories of how God works in your life, your family's lives and those around you, encouraging you to keep striving for a God-centered family.
If you are longing for the "good ole days" of close families and were wondering how to try to recapture those times, this book is a good place to start.
