I am blessed to be a rabbi at Congregation Beth Yeshurun in Houston, Texas. As the old saying goes, "Everything is bigger in Texas." My congregation has over 2,100 families, making it one of the largest synagogues in the world. The members of my congregation are some of the warmest people you will ever meet. So many of them have set an excellent example for my wife and me of how to raise children well, enjoy a successful marriage, and get the most out of life. For the answers to questions about life, Judaism directs us to those who have done important things well. We are to seek their advice and welcome their guidance-to sit at their feet and listen. So that's what I have done. I have whittled down the Jewish wisdom collected from many happy and longtime married couples in my community for you in six short, simple, and inspiring keys to living a good family life. In a day and age when so many people are seeking practical advice on living a good life yet unsure where to find it, I have found some answers. These six keys to living a good family life have helped these couples, they have helped me, and my prayer is that they will help you, as well.

Grace Coulter has been hiding in the kitchen of her family restaurant since she was eight years old. That's when the name-calling began. Stretch, skinny-minny, boy in girl's clothes, all because of the slender height that had her towering over even the tallest boys in the class. Now, nearly thirty years later, Grace is head chef of the failing restaurant and still hiding in the kitchen. Like many businesses during the current recession, Coulter's may have to start laying off employees or even close. But Grace has a plan to save the restaurant and the people she's known all her life; a plan that will force her to go out into the world and face her fears.
