The bible is filled with stories about family love, unity, strength, and even conflict. Family unity is important to God, but He knows that every family will have problems from time to time.
That’s why I often turn to scripture when I need guidance on how to unite family members when there is strife.
If you’re looking for a way to boost family happiness through scripture, you’ve come to the right place.
