Following God’s plan for your family is risky, or is it?
When an ordinary family decides to surrender every area of their lives to the Lord, they discover a “joy that surpasses all understanding.” (Philippians 4:7)
A soul-searching memoir full of life lessons told with wisdom, grace, and humor: Felice Gerwitz’s recollections of growing up in an Italian, Catholic family in the era of 1970’s feminism are dominated by a large and loving extended family. Her young adulthood is filled with dreams of changing the world and the reality of a dad who accepts dates and jobs on her behalf.
As she moves into marriage and motherhood the author recounts her first child’s baffling diagnosis and how that struggle led to family planning decisions that later caused paralyzing guilt and regret. As a result of their spiritual growth, she and her husband decide to surrender their vision for their family and be open to one more child – if that is the Lord’s plan.
This book is a thoughtful and compassionate guide to those wondering if they are following God’s perfect plan for their family.
