7 Habits of a Healthy Home guides parents through seven of the most essential "family-habits" of a home that produces children of virtue and purpose. Their growth (and often outcome) depends on the ground in which they are planted. Parents are responsible to prepare the ground that allows and encourages their children to put down deep roots, to find adequate nourishment, and grow to their full potential. Written in a practical and up-beat style, this book helps parents practice habits to create a healthy environment to produce; well-rounded, spiritually sensitive, socially productive, and self-motivated children who will develop lasting values. Home should be a place of:

1. Refuge

2. Formation

3. Boundaries

4. Celebration

5. Connection

6. Legacy

7. Purpose

7 Habits is not a "how-to" book on parenting, instead it looks at the why and the what of parenting. It focuses not so much on what the parents do but on who they are as people and how they can (and should) positively influence their children!
-- Family stories to read & practical suggestions.
-- Judeo-Christian values offered throughout book.
-- Reflection questions at the end of each chapter.
-- Inspiring quotation from well-known people.
