This is not another book that shows you how to make the best use of your daily planner or how to de-clutter your house. This is a book that teaches families how to better manage their time so that they have more time to connect as a family, to eat dinner together, to live in accord with their Christian values. The author sets out, in workbook style, questions that families can use to define their values, take steps to bring the time management of their lives in line with these values, and then move beyond the family to bring these values out into the world.

Augsburg is proud to publish Escaping the Family Time Trap from Barbara DeGrote-Sorensen and David Allen Sorensen. Their common-sense approach to the quandry of finding family time will be appreciated by many readers. This isn’t just another “turn-off-the-TV-for-an-evening-and-spend-time-together” book. Instead, you’ll learn ways to get at what’s really important for your family and how to create and keep family connectedness.From the Author:
From David Allen Sorensen: This is our third lifestyle book with Augsburg Fortress. It's been a good home from which to share our hearts. People tell us these books read "like a long letter from a good friend." That's Barbara's voice coming through; she wrote all the really good parts. Each of these books was written from the front lines while we were directly involved in the issues.
Now, with three teenagers, the eldest of whom is about to head to college, we have just come through some years when it has been uniquely challenging to carve out family time. Getting the calendars of five busy people to merge into some meaningful time together is like herding cats. While accumulating and sampling an outstanding personal library on healthy family time management, we feel a bit like yo-yo dieters who have tried it all. But, combined with some of our own original trials and errors through the years, we've ultimately feathered our nest with some things that really work. We are pleased to share with our readers perspectives and habits that give relief in a nation that too often rewards over-scheduled families. As usual, we refuse to shy away from sharing our struggles, failures, and what we have learned the hard way.
We wrote this book because the process of conceiving and generating a lifestyle book is always such a blessing to our own family; we learn far more than we can possibly convey to the reader. But we also wrote it because we have found in our workshops and from feedback from readers that these topics are critical. People long to live in ways consistent with what they really feel is important. If we can help our readers sort through their longings and be renewed in the freedom of a family life steeped in grace, faith, and healthy practices, we will be so very pleased. Peace on the journey.
