Overview

Our Journey Home by Gary Lee Bauer, Gary Bauer

When even Hollywood starts valuing family over careers, you know a movement is afoot. According to author and family advocate Gary Bauer, "After decades of living for the moment, we are beginning to rededicate ourselves to family and faith. Many of us are on a homeward journey to regain the self-discipline and idealism that once built strong families and a strong nation."

Hard-hitting, but hopeful, Our Journey Home catalogs the grim results of a "thirty-year binge of values-bashing" that has virtually brought our families to their knees. There is good news, however, says Bauer as he reports on the latest surveys and from his on-the-scene experience in the nation's capitol, where policies that affect the family are made.
