What valuable life lessons can you learn from a stray dog? What do you do when the piano you just purchased vaults over the sides of the truck and somersaults noisily into the street right in front of the seller’s house? How do you handle the news that you and your entire family are being unfairly kicked out of the bowling alley? God is present in every chapter of our lives waiting to grow our witness and draw us closer to Him! These stories focus on three generations of the same family, so the reader becomes more involved with the recurring cast of characters. Even more importantly, the stories focus on God’s unconditional love for His children. The anecdotes combine wisdom, humbling experiences, victory over adversity, and hilarious adventures into one volume that focuses on meaningful relationships and identifying God appointments. Susie says, “Luckily, I serve a God of mercy and forgiveness Who picks me up, dusts me off, and sends me right back out in public, so I can try and do better tomorrow! (He’s much braver than I am…) I am so grateful for His patience and guidance!”
Susie’s simple, conversational style is punctuated with funny reminiscences and thought-provoking observations. This book is perfect for home groups, families, book clubs, and Sunday School classes. The Family Tree features 52 weeks of devotionals that begin with relevant scriptures and contain at least two additional scriptures as the life lesson unfolds. The end of each story includes space for guided journaling, making this an excellent choice for small group discussions or personal reflection.
