Dave Stone has written another essential book for parents looking to create strong family bonds. Building Family Ties With Faith, Love & Laughter is the second in his Faithful Families series and is published by Thomas Nelson

Building Family Ties with Faith, Love, and Laughter, Dave Stone

This book is a quick read with a lasting impact. Even though my kids are young, Dave Stone has provided ideas for laying the groundwork for their spiritual growth and the growth of our family. One of his suggestions is to come up with a family mission statement. I have heard of mission statements used for corporations before but never thought about using them in a family. But it makes sense doesn't it? Stone believes that the family should come up with the mission statement together and check in once in a while to see how they are doing. What a great way to have an ongoing dialogue with your kids.

In Building Family Ties With Faith, Love & Laughter, Dave Stone stresses how important it is for families to be able to laugh together. He provides some great examples of things he has done with  his family that makes me wish he would adopt me! I confess that I am a big planner and this book really touches on the importance of being able to be spontaneous. I will certainly be using some of Pastor Stone's suggestions for ways to have more spontaneous fun with my family.

In our home we make it a point to try and always have dinner as a family. This has involved shifting some schedules around a bit, but I feel it's worth it. Dave Stone agrees and has some pretty powerful statistics to back up how important family meals can be.
