Becoming Forever Families is an intriguing and easy-to-read book that delves into religion, spirituality, and the dynamics of family. The book addresses various ideas about family and what happens to them after their lives on earth are finished.
Becoming Forever Families is the continuation of the story of the Wilkinson Family that the author introduced us to in his previous books. In this newest offering, readers are shown what a “forever family” is as well as showing the reader exactly what the Lord’s plan is for us and our family members as we pass from this life into the next one. Reading the story of Sarah, her new husband Wayne, and her children, Ethan and Alexis, is quite uplifting. The reader will learn how this family came to be and how deeply they believe in the Lord making everything perfect for them and their friends as they move forward.
The connections of a strong family are front-and-center throughout the book and give the reader so very much to think about in terms of what the real purpose of family is and what Christ can do and give to us as we travel through life. It also shows what the plan is for those who may have no actual family in life and how they can become an extended part of the forever family created in the book. There are so many blessings that are bestowed on all of us every day, and Becoming Forever Families describes how to accept these blessings and make them a part of an entire family.
Robert Callaway has given his readers an interesting insight into his beliefs about what the Lord can do for each of us, regardless of the trials that we must deal with and overcome. Becoming Forever Families is a book that will show the reader the huge potential that their future offers if they embrace some of these views. The writing, while it may be a bit simplistic to some, is done well and the book is very well-organized so that readers who might want to revisit and explore a particular idea will be able to do so with ease. The reading guide at the end of the book is a much-needed and well-developed addition to the book and will prove very thought-provoking and encouraging to the reader.
Overall Becoming Forever Families is a good book that will be embraced by many who enjoy a spiritual story that may help them grow in their own beliefs as they read. It is one that will give the reader a deeper understanding of one man’s ideas about Christ’s plan for us and for our families. While I feel it will appeal to a smaller audience, those who are interested in it will adore it and I would recommend it easily to this group.
Quill says: Becoming Forever Families is an interesting and moving look into what one's family will look like after this life. The author presents many interesting arguments that will cause readers to really dig into themselves and think hard.
