    Book Review

Reviewed by Anne Boling for Readers' Favorite

Fighting For Your Family by Steve Carlson was written with a focus on men however; many of the points in this book smacked me up side of the head. Carlson begins his book by sharing with readers the day that his wife told him it was over. He was shocked; he had no idea why she wanted a divorce. It was at this point in his life that he realized he was an imposter. He went to church and went through all of the motions but was not spiritually connected to God. In front of others he lived what appeared to be a Godly life but behind closed doors he led anything except a Godly life. When Steve took the focus off of himself he changed. “Jeremiah 10:23 I know O Lord a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his own steps.” Carlson continued to share how he truly surrendered his life to God.

This book touched me. Steve Carlson used scripture to support his beliefs. His writing style is conversational and easy to understand. This book is superb! Most women wish their husbands would read this book. Carlson turned his life around. It was too late for his first marriage but God blessed him with a second marriage. The fight Carlson refers to in the title is not a physical fight but a Spiritual one. This book is a tool to prepare us to fight the fight. Scripture calls man to be the Spiritual Leader of the home and yet few men truly step up to the plate.I admire Carlson for sharing his life with others. His story is a warning to others to prepare, stand strong and begin the fight before it is too late. I suggest using this book as a small group study. While there are no discussion questions it would be easy to draw individuals into a dialogue. Thank you Mr. Carlson, for sharing and caring.
