God's Grace for Every Family

Biblical Encouragement for Single-Parent Families and the Churches That Seek to Love Them Well

«'Many tears welled up reading this unique, important book on an underserved theme. Tears of pain for the journey single families walk. Tears of lament for the way leaders like me have been complicit in the loneliness and isolation. Tears of hope because of the stories of light beyond the loss. Tears of thankfulness, because, as Anna testifies, the enough-ness of Jesus really is enough. This book is equal parts storytelling and Bible study, everywhere soaked through with the gospel. Every pastor...no, every Christian, needs to read it.'»

«'This book takes me back... back to my parents' divorce when I was fifteen, and then the subsequent years living with my now single mom. The Scriptures and stories are honest and unfiltered. Without superficiality or pat answers, Anna continually points us to the hope, strength, and healing that only God can provide.'»

<b>Dr. Rob Rienow, Founder of Visionary Family Ministries</b>

«'I don't know of a church without single-parent families and yet I know of very few resources on how churches can actually minister to those families. In this book, Anna Meade Harris doesn't treat single-parent families as a math problem--a mere subtraction of one parent. With biblical knowledge and personal experience, she shows us the unique ministry needs single-parent families have. And she gives us solutions and ideas. This is a welcome book for Christians who want to welcome the single-parent families they love.'»

<b>Russell Moore, Christianity Today</b>

«In God's Grace for Every Family, Anna Harris has given a gift to single parents and to the church. Having been a single dad for a period, I can attest to the numerous and often unnamed challenges, even within the church. Harris lifts up the discouraged and weary single parent with biblical truth and offers gentle, encouraging correctives to the church so we can love and care for the single-parent families in our midst better as the family of God. I am thankful for the ministry this book will do to encourage and restore hurting people and strengthen the Church.»

<b>Barnabas Piper, Pastor and author</b>

«'Anna Harris has written the definitive book for single parents. In a corpus of literature that tells weary single parents to pick themselves up by their bootstraps, Anna points them to the Lord Christ, who carries their load. This book is a well of hope, relief, and mercy, all grounded in Scripture. No better Christian book for single parents has ever been written.'»

<b>Cameron Cole, Chairman, Rooted Ministries</b>

«'No two single parents share the same circumstances. But they share many of the same needs from their brothers and sisters in Christ in the church. Anna Meade Harris offers gospel-centered perspective that will not only encourage her fellow single parents but also equip the rest of us to love them well. This book is full of godly counsel and hard-earned, practical wisdom.'»

<b>Collin Hansen, vice president of content and editor in chief of The Gospel Coalition, author of T

«'God's Grace for Every Family is the gospel-centered, grace-filled book needed for every single parent longing to lead their families well and each church body coming alongside. As a single mom, I felt understood in a way no other book on this topic has addressed, while also finding practical, Biblical help for the struggles and burdens of single parenting. Weaving together story, scripture, and research, Anna Meade Harris answers the question every church and lay leader should ask: how can we embrace and love single parents in our community? God's Grace for Every Family will be a powerful resource for so many!'»

<b>Lisa Appelo, Single mom to seven and Author of Life Can Be Good Again: Putting Your World Back To

«'I began God's Grace for Every Family, identifying immediately those who would benefit from reading it: my recently divorced neighbor, my recently widowed friend. When I finished this book, however, I'd gained a much deeper appreciation for the gospel comfort it offered to all kinds of readers. Through stories of single parents, Harris helps us trust God's plentiful provision and presence in seasons of need. Moreover, she inspires and instructs the church to act as God's hands and feet. As a book that is biblically faithful, intensely practical, and personally vulnerable, I have many reasons for heartily recommending God's Grace for Every Family.'»
