Author and father of four Justin Whitmel Earley reveals practical ways to relieve the tension between how you long to be engaged with your family and what your daily life actually looks like. He will provide the tools you need to create daily habits—from mealtimes to bedtimes—in simple and practical ways that will change your family’s spiritual rhythms.
