To strenthen and celebrate our families--Wellness & Recovery

So much of who we are and how we live has been shaped by our families. Unfotuately, modern family life often seems characterized more by distance and dysfunction than by nurturance and trust. The results for ourselves, our relationships, and our communities can be disastrous.

The readings in Today's Gift nuture family self-esteem and strengthen family ties by encouraging discussion, self-expression, and mutual respect. Insightful, challenging, and caring quotations--from ancient proverbs, nursery rhymes and cartoon characters, and from figures such as William Blake, Anne Frank, Tille Olssen, Albert Einstein, Erma Bombeck, M. Scott Peck, and many more--are accompanied by a thoughtful reflection and an inspiring affirmation.

In the midst of our hectic lives, Today's Gift offers families "a chance to share a few minutes with one another--to renew our mutual trust and understanding and to take advantage of the wisdom we have to offer."
