Paperback - 32 Pages
Micah and Eileen Bickford write:
“We often talk about our church as a family, but did you ever think of your family as a church? Just as a pastor has the God-given responsibility to faithfully teach God’s Word to the church, so parents also have the God-given responsibility to shepherd the hearts of their children. Our Home is like a Little Church is a book that helps both children and their parents understand their joyful endeavor that reaches week-long. This little gem waters the beginning seeds of a Christian worldview by intertwining ideas that could easily remain separate in the mind of a child–and all too often, our own thinking. Each spread opens to a simple yet profound comparison of events and principles learned at church that extend to the home and back again. Child-like drawings and a rhyming rhythm hold great appeal for young readers and listeners, while reminding adults that worship is not just restricted to the adult realm. Every father should read and reread this book to his children, to encourage him to fulfill his calling as a Pastor-Daddy by the grace of God.”
