a beautiful family culture

The title of this post is Stephen Covey's answer when asked what is "effectiveness" of a family? He outlines methods of creating a beautiful family culture in this book:

I, like many of you I'm sure, have read his original book, and this is a follow-up using the same principle habits but focused on family relationships. I recommend reading the first one...well, first. The habits are pretty much the same in both, and it's interesting to see how habits like "Be Proactive", "Think Win-Win", and "Synergize" can take on drastically different levels of significance whether you're thinking of yourself individually or of your family dynamic.

This is a good read, no matter where you are in your family - parent, spouse, sibling, aunt/uncle, grandparent. I hope you'll give it a try, if you haven't already, and let me know how it has helped you better empathize, share, affirm, pray and sacrifice in your family.
