    My review of the Soul Food and Living Water

    I really enjoy reading devotionals. This book gave me that type of feel. It has short, bite-sized nuggets that are easy to digest. You can read on a daily bases or a chapter at a time. It's also nice to have as a go to resource on different topics. Now days, we can all use a little help rearing our children in troublesome times.

    This book is basically broken into 4 parts:
    1. Our Personal Relationship with God
    2. The Intimacy of Our Marriages
    3.Our parenting and Home Life
    4. Our Cultural heritage and Extended relationships

    At the end, you are challenged to do more for your family or community by accepting the Nehemiah challenge.

    Christ IS the center of family

    This is a biblically based, self-help guide for families. The book is a must-have for families following the teachings of Christ in today's fast-paced world. The Powells offer a fresh outlook, which is rich in heritage and truly anointed in the word of God. Their biblically sound examples and practical applications make it easy to transform your personal relationship with God while expressing love and sharing the word with your family. The authors begin the book focusing on a personal relationship with God. Using biblical principles, the book emphasizes how every aspect of your life is tied to the Bible, even soul food Sunday dinners. The discussion on intimacy in marriages describes personal stories of commitment and provides suggestions on how to keep marriage as a threefold cord. The words are carefully crafted into stories, which present a clear relationship between Christ, husband and wife. Examples on how to enrich your marriage through romantic interludes, husbands leading the family while modeling the principles of Christ, wives modeling submission but still being independent, disciples expressing and sharing God's love to our families. Is it possible for today's African-American family to raise children to be Christ-like? The Powells say YES! They present examples, affirmations, and suggestions on changing from 'world view' to 'biblical view' without compromising commitments to self, family, church or work. They chip away at America's problem, the breakdown of the family, in a way that will transform the world. Soul Food & Living Water is not just a guidebook for reinventing the African-American family; it provides real-life answers to some of today's most complicated questions. As a Sunday school teacher and avid reader of Christian books on family and marriage, I strongly recommend this book to families, book clubs, Sunday school classes, and church leaders, as it will promote discussion while providing a biblical foundation. The word selection and presentation of ideas are skillfully sewn together to be culturally sensitive and relevant to other cultures. If family is important to you, this book should be part of your library. Reviewed by Monique Bruner for Loose Leaves Book Review
