Healing Family Relationships
A Guide to Peace and Reconciliation
Steps to Peace and Healing in Your Family
Every family has hurts, and the wounds that come from our relatives can be deeper than all others. Conflict within a family can range from daily frictions and annoyances to rage and hatred and, eventually, estrangement. We all want things to be different, but we may have no idea where to start.
After twenty-five years of ministering to families, Rob Rienow believes reconciliation is at the heart of the gospel--reconciliation with God and one another, including our families. You will come away from this book with specific steps to pursue peace and healing. Each chapter includes key biblical examples as well as present-day stories of families who have experienced God's help--including the author's own miraculous healing of his relationship with his father.
Our families can bring out the best, as well as the worst, in all of us. May this book guide you as you let God make your home and family a blessing in a broken world.

"There is not a family in the universe who would not benefit from this book. It's hope filled, biblical, and practical."--JIM BURNS, PhD, president, HomeWord; author of Doing Life with Your Adult Children: Keep Your Mouth Shut & the Welcome Mat Out and The Purity Code
