Join Becky and Ruthie for a hilarious look at the roots, shoots and fruits of their own family tree! This mother/daugher writing team climbs fearlessly into the family tree, then bounces around on the limbs to see what shakes loose! The result is the story of a family filled with love and laughter, yet one with its share of challenges and disappointments--and memorable characters.

Mee the Rare Bird, Becky's Dad (Ruthie's husband), who's so perfect he makes life miserable for Becky's husband, Scott. The Jaybird, little 18-month-old Rachel, who disappears one day without wearing even feathers. Uncle Genie, who insists he can blow feathers into a pillow with a vacuum cleaner. The Matriarch, great-grandma Peterson, at 94 the sage and spiritual leader of the whole flock. And all the rest in the nest!

Written with a rare and wonderful combination of wit, keen insight, and a gift for finding fun in even the smallest detail, this book overflows with the joy God brings to families who follow Him.
