The Restoration Series
The Anderson family seems to have it all, when you are on the outside looking in. But, when Jim comes home and discovers that his wife has walked out, he can't understand what could possible have gone wrong in their lives. As he seeks to really listen to his wife and put her needs first, loving her as the Bible talks about, he discovers a relationship he never thought possible.
Based on the principles behind The DNA of Relationships, this series is not just about marriage, but about other relationships as well. Exhibiting through fiction how we can improve those relationships.
In the second book, the Anderson family has weathered some storms and come through. When Jim's son, Tom, looses his job, he keeps it a secret for over 5 months. Hoping to find another IT position before his wife and family find out, he tells lie after lie, little realizing the damage that is being done. When things blow up, he must face the problems he has caused in his marriage as well as those he has with his father.
Both of these books are excellent! I like that they are taking information from a non-fiction book and applying it to fiction, to give one examples of how to improve relationships. I look forward to the next book and seeing where the Anderson family goes from here!
