About the Author
Wayne A. Mack has lived in Pretoria, South Africa for nine months out of the year to teach biblical counseling to pastors and aspiring pastors in the region. Wayne is an elder of Grace Fellowship and is on the board of Tsholofelo orphanage.

He and his wife, Carol, have 4 adult children, three daughters-in-law and 14 grandchildren.
As a husband, father of four, and family counselor, Wayne A. Mack knows what makes families tick. Here he offers biblical insight and practical wisdom into two crucial areas of family life: communication and conflict resolution. Alerting us to the pitfalls of faulty communication, such as “undertalk,” “overtalk,” poor listening, forms of falsehood, and “circuit jammers” to communication, Mack examines why families fight and explains the key to turning family discord into harmony. Firsthand success stories and highly practical application questions give hope and clear direction to all who wish to build stronger families God’s way.
The author gave many thorough and enlightening illustrations on how communication breaks down & what to look out for. After reading & self-examination, one could identify the areas for improvement & learn from the methods prescribed. The first part identifies the types of relationships within the family. The second on developing God-honouring relationships, dwelling mainly on the subject of communication. I was very much enlightened by the types of circuit jammers within the family. Part three expounds on sustaining Godly family relationships. It explains why families fight & how to turn discord to concord. I am very much encouraged & edified from the reading of this book.
