About the Book 

What kind of character defines the Translation Generation who will be privileged—by the Spirit and power of Elijah—to proclaim a finished work, the “sealing truth” for this hour? Where are to be found the inspired messengers who are qualified to bring the closing truth, which is to breathe new hope, life, and power into a beleaguered, weary, but still patiently waiting community of faith? And where shall we look for the living testimony promised for this last generation and for the one who is “filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb … to make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1: 17, 76–79)?

Here the author sets forth—gleaned through a lifetime of observation, study, and practical experience—some of the foundational principles that provide the key to the long-expected restoration that precedes the promised outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon a humble and repentant people. We discover that, “in the time of the end, every divine institution is to be restored” (Prophets and Kings, 678) and that “the great reformatory movement must begin in presenting to fathers and mothers and children the principles of the law of God” (Testimonies for the Church Vol. 6, 119).

Character by Design aims to reveal the starting place—the Christian Home—beginning with committed parents and the babies in their arms. “Time is too short to accomplish that which might have been accomplished in past generations … but because time is short, we should be in earnest … to give the young an education which will be consistent with our faith” (Counsels to Parents, Teachers, and Students, 179).

Available in PAPERBACK and eBOOK formats.

Growing up during the Great Depression, Jeanne Shafer learned at an early age what it means to work together as family and community in sacrificial love. Jeanne attended Pacific Union College, where she met her husband, Gordon.

Hearing God's call to simple Country Living, they determined to establish an environment where they might act more intimately with their Creator in daily life. Through the years Jeanne has relied on a rich heritage in the divine educational principles and a unique practical training to help other parents searching for guidance in "[training] up a child in the way he should go..."

  2. I highly recommend this beautifully written book. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2019

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    "In these pages I discovered God’s own design for the family and the Christian home. In a simple and practical way the author has brought to life the government of the family and its relationship to the heavenly Father and His church. The emphasis is on the application of these principles in the everyday life of the family, and with the Holy Spirit's influence the desired character may be developed from the very start of life. The author also reinforces the fact that Love is the fulfillment of the Law in the home and family, as it is in heaven. As a mental health counselor and mother, I highly recommend this beautifully written book that reveals the precepts of true education and will produce lasting benefits to any family."
