ATYPICAL: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON FAMILY
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: NOT-SO-TYPICAL FAMILIES HAVE TOUGH CONVERSATIONS

SERIES OVERVIEW:

No family is perfect — not even the ones that seem “normal” on the outside. No one truly has a “normal” family, and that’s okay! Sometimes it’s the most not-normal families that God uses to make the most not-normal difference in the world. In this 4-week series, we’ll look at four imperfect and “atypical” families from Scripture. We’ll discover that not-so-typical families are often used by God because not-so-typical families pray for each other, have tough conversations, and forgive each other.
