About the book:

Becoming a Spiritually Healthy Family: Avoiding the 6 Dysfunctional Parenting Styles (David C. Cook, January 2015)

We all want to guide our children into the abundant life that Jesus offers. But when we pursue the more and better that the world offers above our pursuit of Jesus, we fall into dangerous parenting habits. In Becoming a Spiritually Healthy Family, Michelle Anthony unpacks six common dysfunctional parenting styles that we fall into out of habit, lack of attention, or just oversight due to busyness. If you long to show your children Jesus but don't know how to do it, you'll find hope in this practical guide to creating a relentlessly grace-filled home that is focused on God as first in charge.

Includes Scripture guides, reflection questions, ideas for family rites of passage, and other real life family examples.

My Review:
Michelle Anthony's "Becoming A Spiritually Healthy Family" is a must-read parenting book for all parents!  This book is such an encouraging and uplifting book that will boost your determination and convictions in regards to raising your children.  I find myself getting caught up in the busyness of life and the every day routine that it is so easy to let "little things" slide and picking and choosing battles, but ultimately choosing the easy way more often than not.   This is just the book I needed to really encourage me to stay strong.  There are sections devoted to 6 dysfunctional parenting styles and what consists of those.  Then there are ways to avoid these styles and better ways of parenting.  I found this book to be extremely useful and encouraging and I know I will be rereading sections and referring back to it time after time when I feel like I may need that little extra boost and encouragement.
