Generational Faithfulness

The Christian family can be a powerful tool to draw people to Jesus, but family life is hard!  Marriages come under attack, children want their own way and grandparents wonder where they fit into the families they raised! How can we possibly make a difference for Christ through these challenges?! 
Rob and Amy Rienow of Visionary Family Ministries join Chris Brooks on Equipped to guide us toward healthy, Biblical family relationships that will impact the world for generations to come!
