Chapman details five timeless characteristics that create a healthy family environment:
A heart for service Husbands and wives who relate intimately Parents who guide their children Children who obey and honor parents Husbands who love and leadIn Dr. Chapman's own words, "What happens to your family does make a difference not only to you and your children, but to the thousands of young observers who are in search of a functional family."
