Publisher's Description

Our Home is like a Little church was written to teach preschool children the Christian doctrine of the home as a place of worship where the father teaches his family God's commands and leads them to worship the one true God.
The home is the front line of ministry to children-not the Sunday school or public church gathering. All the practices present in a Christian worship service-the Scriptures, prayer, and praise-should be present in the home as well. Our Home is Like a Little Church teaches this truth by repeatedly putting church and home side by side-on adjacent pages.
God expects parents to teach their children when they sit down for meals, when they drive along the road, when they lie down for bed, and when they get up in the morning. These "pastoral" duties can be daunting so this book also serves as a reminder that these duties are done in light of God's grace shown to us through Jesus' work on the cross.
Parents and children together can read this engaging little book in order to discover what God's plans are for worshipping Him inside their home.

Editorial Reviews

This is an excellent book and I have sought to get a copy into the hands of every family at our church. It is a story about fathers leading their families at home as the pastor leads the church. The great old concept of "every father the pastor of the church meeting in his house" is portrayed here in an engaging and compelling way. The left hand pages comment on what the pastor does at church. The right hand pages then comment on how the dad does a similar thing in leading his family at home. Reading this then will urge fathers forward and give them some built-in accountability as children will look to see that the things read about are actually done! The book is simply written in a nice rhyme with nice illustrations. This little book has the potential to accomplish much good. I encourage you to get a copy for yourself and then get copies for families you could give it to.
Our Home is like a Little Church beautifully illustrates the Biblical role that each father is called to play in the lives of his children. The apostle Paul states in 1 Thessalonians 2 that he has dealt with the Thessalonian church the same way that a father deals with his children...."encouraging, comforting and urging [them], to live lives worthy of God." I pray that every father that reads this powerful little book will have the courage to lead his family to live life for the Glory of God and nothing less. I LOVE the book because it provides a beautiful picture of what it looks like for a father to be the spiritual leader in the home. It simplifies this profound truth in a way that can be easily understood by everyone in the family.
