by Rhonda Rhea

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Rhonda Rhea puts the fun and the faith back into family life! Each page in this delightful book will either cause a chuckle or give pause for thought. The author has a sound understanding of Scripture and she seamlessly weaves biblical principles around family pandemonium. The result is a view of life as it was meant to be lived.

Readers are guaranteed to see themselves and their families within these pages. The writing style is like that of a dear friend. The authorís love of the Lord, love of families and love of laughter combine in a meaningful way. Each short chapter begins with a humorous family situation that serves as a springboard for unveiling an important biblical principle. A quick and memorable visit with the authorís family leads to a renewed understanding of what it means to be part of Godís family.

The topics covered include everything from marriage to parenthood to faith. Yet, even though these issues are serious, there is a perfect balance of Scriptural truths and lighthearted fun. The author truly has a gift for cleverly using words and expressing ideas. As a pastorís wife and the mother of five children, she also seems to have a steady supply of anecdotes!

The author suggests using this book for fun family devotionals on busy days. An insightful readerís guide is included for personal study or a group setting.

Rhonda Rheaís sense of humor and godly common sense will be a welcome addition in every readerís home! -- Joyce Handzo, Christian Book
