DOES YOUR FAMILY NEED TO BREAK THROUGH generations of dysfunction like ours did?

What if your family could win the fight against dysfunction? What if you could write the remaining chapters of your family’s future? What if you could describe the freedom your family found, freedom your family restlessly sought for generations? What if “the journey your family is on” is not destined to crash and burn?  What if your family could be rerouted onto a road of healing more than you ever dreamed possible?

Generational dysfunction destroys the fabric of the family. It is oppressive cancer that multiplies stress and anxiety. It smothers our last ounces of hope, ambushes our most precious relationships, and embezzles priceless time that can never be recovered.

Examining dysfunction through the lens of scripture, author Francie Willis, along with six of her grandchildren, transparently and courageously tell their story with newfound clarity to make what could have been a tell-all tirade into a heal-all love letter.

Read their book and discover how you too can:

  • Learn to speak a truth that heals
  • Adopt a no-shame no-blame policy
  • Regain power by releasing control
  • Make a new message out of an old mess.
