Pleasant Family Life

Family Has Always Been
At the Center
of Our Private Lives.
Even as the World Changes All Around Us,
the Importance of Family Does Not.
Neither Do the Challenges.

Dear Friends,

Living happily with a spouse or partner, raising and educating children, dealing with aging parents, and maintaining our homes are all parts of life that bring us both joy and problems. If the challenges and happiness of family life are important to you, wouldn’t it be nice to have a website you could turn to for help and sage advice?

Visitors of this website and subscribers to Home Family and Beyond will find a friendly world and meet a wise old man who walks through life as if walking through a beautiful garden.

Today he might offer you a nice picture book of flowers.

Tomorrow he may visit his old friend and provide advice on a book about Arthritis and Depression.

He might hear about the problems of a neighbor’s kids and send you a guide on how you can paint a smile on your child’s face. He might also enclose a selection of bible stories and prayers that you can share with your children when they are finished playing computer games.

He has help for your cousin who is unemployed and looking for a job because he has edited a guide for job hunters.

Through personal experience with sleeping disorders, he has studied the methods and medicines that are available and discovered the value of natural medicine. He is happy to share with you what he knows and the resources he has found. is an interactive website that was created to foster communication. I look forward to hearing your reactions, questions and opinions. The online forum will allow you to express your ideas and get the best advice and information the editor and contributors can offer. It is our goal to help you have what our name implies, a Pleasant Family Life.

Visitors can use many of the recommended resources for free. Anybody can try and use them for his/her benefit.
