"Raising children in a hostile world is more difficult than ever before. Apart from a biblical worldview it's not only difficult but impossible. That's why parents need the proper

tools to help kids navigate through the murky waters ahead.

Jen Alward has masterfully addressed the issues confronting kids and parents in her book, Hope and Healing at Home.

As a mother, grandmother and great grandmother, I highly recommend this book. It offers not only creative and fun ideas, but hope, healing, and practical godly wisdom to those seeking transformation and redemption in their homes."

"Hope and Healing at Home is one of the most useful parenting books I have read!

Jen dives right into practical activities and strategies that any parent can incorporate to build a positive, more connected family where every member feels like they belong and can contribute. She offers great advice for taking care of not only each other but ourselves too, as we do the most important job there is, raising healthy humans. I highly recommend it."
