About the book:
Total Family Makeover: 8 Practical Steps to Making Disciples at Home (Abingdon, September 2016)
Train children in the way they should go; when they grow old, they won't depart from it. ---Proverbs 22:6
God calls us as parents to be key disciple-makers in our children's lives, but if we're honest, some days it's a battle just to get them dressed and ready for school on time. How can you mold their hearts when sometimes you can't even find their shoes?
In Total Family Makeover, author Melissa Spoelstra gives parents a way---a sort of spiritual track to run on---when it comes to building family discipleship. She focuses on eight key habits of growth:
-Spending Time in Prayer
-Reading God's Word
-Growing Through a Mentoring Relationship
-Finding Community in the Church
-Taking Time to Rest
-Giving Back to God
-Sharing Your Faith
Disciples are made, not born. Whether your children are babes in arms or teenagers getting ready to leave the nest, making disciples at home starts with you! Give your family a makeover with this practical approach to helping your children learn what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

I really enjoyed this book, it was eye opening and also a gentle reminder to enjoy these moments of raising my children and not being too hard on myself. Melissa's book focuses on molding, and raising children to live their lives as disciples of God. This book is divided into eight sections, each focusing on a key habit. One is growing through mentoring and another is serving others. I found that the Sarah covered so much in this book, but I didn't feel overwhelmed while reading it. Instead I felt encouraged to train my children and to allow myself to seek out guidance from others. I really liked how Melissa stressed the importance of mentoring at all stages and this chapter was probably my favorite in the book, as it is an area I want to, I need to focus more on. The layout of this book is also very "user friendly" as it includes reflection questions and practical steps for trying to instill the principles in my own life.
