Order Now

Raising a family is sacred, God-given work. Parents and grandparents who are physically, emotionally, mentally, and faithfully whole will raise children who honor the same Christian values. Family wellness allows parents and grandparents to form healthy, faith-based relationships with their children and grandchildren. Learn practical parenting styles, tips for handling tough situations, and ways to connect your family to Jesus more deeply.

“Parenting with the goal of forming relationships—WE—requires more than conversation; it requires action that anchors  our verbiage.” 

–John D. Eckrich from the Introduction

What is Wellness?

Wellness is multifaceted: it extends to the emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of children, parents and grandparents. God’s Word explains how He wants families to live in wellness together using five core character values.
