Why Read Family?


Are you tired of fighting with your family? Do you feel hurt by your siblings, or mistrusted by your parents? In the pages of Family: How to Love Yours (and Help Them Like You Back), I want to walk with you through some of the tricky parts of navigating family life. Whether your family is close to perfect or completely messed up, God wants to use the people you call family to make you more like Jesus.


Family is written to come alongside your daughter* and equip her as she navigates her roles, responsibilities, and responses from a Christian perspective. With tender, funny, and hope-filled insight, Jessie Minassian digs in deep where parents sometimes struggle to be heard. Jessie offers trusted advice and wise, Godly counsel for a young woman to honor her closest relationships, see her family’s dynamics in new ways, and have some fun along the way!


Whether blended, adopted, traditional, or broken, one thing is certain: Every young woman* in your group has a family, and she can use some help figuring out how to navigate those relationships in light of God’s purpose and design. Family is perfect for small group discussion, with application chapters at the end of each section to make your job easier. See bulk discounts here.

*Recommended for young women ages 10-22
