Jerry David and his wife, Susan, have been married for 48 years and have raised two children. They founded and pastored Lincoln City Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. This book is drawn from their upbringing as well as pastoring. The principles found in this book are a result of those childhood years, the raising of their own children and countless hours and encounters with families in distress as a pastor. Sarah K. Mwania and her husband, Solo, pastor a thriving congregation in Lincoln, Nebraska. Her influence through her coaching and social media content, Our Tribe of Many on YouTube, has benefitted thousands with weekly insights into managing a home with 11 children. Shirley David and her husband, Al, enjoy an honored place in a family that produced four children, 12 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren. Shirley’s insight and creativity in raising her children has produced a legacy where all the generations still seek her advice and common sense.
