"Working families provide serious love. Members learn self-love and self-worth in functional families. Most importantly, a persons self-esteem is heightened in a family that is goal-oriented with members who are about the business of making life better. Families do fruitful things together, thereby giving their members a sense of oneness and collective doing. Families represent a lifeline among skyscrapers, clear water in sewage.
Families live in houses or apartments that they make into homes. A family's home is a refuge from a hostile world. When a person returns home, it is expected that he or she will find peace, welcome, warmth, food for body and mind, protection, love, support and rejuvenation. It is said in Afrika that living is worthless for one without a home."
