Love Your People Well
Resources for Christian Family Life
family life starts here
Don’t deal with your family struggles alone. Christian family life is hard work! I’ve written these devotionals from my 10+ years of experience as a Christian counselor helping marriages and families thrive. Each devotional brings biblical wisdom into a common struggle of everyday family life.
Whether it’s a prayer journaling template, biblical affirmation cards for kids, or family Bible study guides, you’ll find a quick, printable resource to help you in everyday family life.

bring on the books
I used to work with a counselor who would say, “A $10 book can be worth ten counseling sessions.” It’s true! Books are the cheapest, easiest, and one of the best ways to grow.
- Get a Bible you like.
- My favorite daily devotional is Nancy Guthrie’s The One Year Praying Through the Bible for Your Kids.
- Robert McPhee’s book Search for Significance: Seeing Your True Worth Through God’s Eyes is one I recommend all the time as a counselor. (The book includes a workbook for going deeper.)
- Gary Thomas’s “Sacred” series is great: Sacred Marriage and Sacred Parenting, as well as Sacred Search for those dating or engaged. They are easy to read and Christ-centered.
- Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No, To Take Control of Your Life as well as the other Boundaries books by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend are all really helpful.
