    The Spiritually Vibrant Home

    Product Description

    We all long for homes where we can thrive and flourish. What does it take to have a spiritually vibrant household?

    Don Everts invites us to contemplate what the Bible says about households and consider what a new research project has revealed by pulling back the curtains on everyday households of faith. Original research from the Barna Group and Lutheran Hour Ministries shows that some of the healthiest, most vibrant homes extend beyond the nuclear family and include people that may not be biologically related but feel like family. These households have vital practices of spirituality, hospitality, and community that make them delightful places for living and thriving.

    In the end you might just be surprised by how God wants to work in and through your household. And you’ll have practical steps for nurturing a vibrant household of faith, no matter what stage of life you are in.

    Foreword: Brooke Hempell, Senior VP, Research, Barna Group

    Introduction: Why Do We Get So Emotional About Home?

    1. Homelife: Recognizing the Spiritual Significance of the Mundane

    Notes

    Don Everts is reluctant to call himself an evangelist, but for decades he has found himself talking about Jesus with all sorts of skeptical and curious people. He is a writer for Lutheran Hour Ministries and teaching pastor at Bonhomme Presbyterian Church in St. Louis, Missouri. He has also been a speaker and trainer for Alpha and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. His many books include Jesus with Dirty Feet, I Once Was Lost, and The Reluctant Witness.

    Don and his wife, Wendy, live in a wonderfully messy multigenerational household in the St. Louis area with their three children and Don’s mother, plus a dog that thinks he’s a cat, and a cat that spends time in the neighborhood sewers.
