Starting a family is a soul-shaping, world-altering experience. Unfortunately, in a culture of competing values and protracted timelines, couples are increasingly backing their way into parenting or missing it altogether. By the time the average couple tries to have kids, they are often beyond their late twenties and surprised to learn they're sliding past the peak of their fertile years. In "Start Your Family," Steve and Candice Watters encourage couples to be intentional about their timeline in the early years of marriage and to trust God to help them boldly launch their families. Responding to the most common doubts and hurdles, they offer biblical inspiration for the questions, "Why have kids?," "When is the best time to start?," and "How can we fit kids into our lives?" "This book is astutely wise. It cuts against the grain of weak and fearful thinking. It will startle you and free you to trust God with your family and your future. That's when you find what real life is all about. You can "never" afford to have kids--so why not trust God and get started?" --Steve and Mary Farrar, authors of "Point Man" and "King Me" (Steve), and "Reading Your Male" (Mary) "A remarkable, go-against-the-grain book, with wisdom, practical advice, and biblical application bounding from every page. The Watters have written an emotionally aware and intellectually astute book that is as sensitive as it is compelling." --Gary Thomas, author of "Sacred Marriage" and "Sacred Parenting" "Ably written and offering both practical advice and spiritual encouragement, "Start Your Family" should be read by every Christian couple entering into marriage or considering whether to start a family or have another child."--Allan Carlson, president, The Howard Center for Family, Religion, and Society "Just like 'in the beginning, ' the family today is at the center of a great spiritual battle. "Start Your Family" will certainly inspire couples to reclaim the blessing of children and, through that, build a true culture of life."
--Christopher West, Fellow, Theology of the Body Institute, and author of "The Love That Satisfies" and "Good News about Sex and Marriage"
