Here, his sons Tom and Richard Blackaby first establish the biblical case for the idea of experiencing God at home, illuminating how the clear foundation for God’s work in nations and churches around the world is his work in families.
Indeed, healthy families lead to healthy churches, and the Blackabys illustrate that through real-life stories of families that have found ways to experience God in marriage, in choosing life’s direction, in rescuing broken relationships, in forgiveness, in the salvation of loved ones, etc.
Lessons from the Bible support these moving accounts, and the book concludes with resources that will guide individuals families as well as entire churches toward practically experiencing God at home.

Written as part of the Experiencing God series, this book encourages families to bring God into the home and fully experience His rich blessings. Two brothers wrote the book together and bring lots of personal stories and experiences into their writing. It's well written, with a beautiful and practical message for parents.
I enjoyed reading this book, but also learned quite a bit that I plan to incorporate into our home. This is definitely a book I'll be keeping. I would highly recommend this book for families.
I received this book free of charge from Shelton Interactive in exchange for my honest review.

This is a book every parent (or grand-parent raising their grandchildren) should have and read! It is a wonderful, Biblical guide book for raising our children in a godly manner.
The book starts with statistics that are quite sobering. Divorce rates, bullying, addiction are just some of the things facing parents today. Our children are being bombarded by the world from every direction!
Each chapter in this book is full of vital information for helping direct our children in a godly manner. I really enjoyed how the authors of this book shared personal stories of their own growing up years. They share stories of how their father, Henry Blackaby, and their mother showed them Jesus by their actions and deeds. I also love how they share stories from their own families - there's something encouraging about authors who are real and honest about their lives, but give us hope through the Lord.
There are practical steps and insights in this book to help us all be better parents and to show the Lord to our own children. I also thought the "Questions for Reflection/Discussion" at the end of each chapter was really good as it helps us to sit down and really evaluate our parenting and home life.
This book is filled with Biblical principles that will help you to guide your family into a closer relationship with the Lord. I highly, highly recommend this book! Your family will be so blessed by the actions you'll take as you read this wonderful book!
