Jane5 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring and motivationalMarch 22, 2020JaneQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This parenting book is based on Bible truths. Personally, I don't think it's just for parents, it's also for those who have passion in teaching the next generations. I love the book with the devotions. It gives a more concrete idea how to start. Throughout the entire book, the tone of encouragement is very urging. Right at the beginning of the book, it already challenges us to readjust our attitude in worshiping God. The example the authors gave is very down-to-earth and honest to self. When we have a worshipful heart, we can build and establish our children in a worshipful way. I really highly recommend this book.
smiliejen5 Stars Out Of 5Great faith based resource for families!March 11, 2020smiliejenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Ruth and Troy Simons co-wrote Foundations to share 12 foundational truths they have focused on in bringing up their six boys. They are honest and humble, making it known that they are not parenting experts, but that in all their years of parenting, these foundations are what they feel have shaped their family's faith the most. It is their heart's work to guide parents to train their children to know and love God and to instill a deep rooted faith in their families. Foundations is a book that spans all ages so you can go through it chapter by chapter as a family. Each chapter has 5 parts and contain scriptures, devotionals, discussion questions and worship with Ruth Chou Simon's gorgeous artwork woven throughout the pages. As a mom of 4, I highly recommend this book, especially to those with large families and large age ranges. It is a book we will come back to again and again.
Mom of 25 Stars Out Of 5Great resource for family worshipMarch 8, 2020Mom of 2Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are like me and have always wanted to do family devotions but did not know where to start, this is the book for you! This book is an excellent resource for family worship. It breaks down the 12 foundations into 5 short devotionals that your family can read together. It is easily understood (even for kids) without watering down the truths. Each daily read includes a thought to ponder and a Scripture to memorize together.
My family has started reading this together. The discussions it has stimulated have surprised me. My kids have been in church most of their lives, but we have never done family worship. I have often wondered how much they are getting out of church and whether they truly understand the Gospel and our faith. After the first week of reading this book together I can see that they understand and are hungry for deeper discussion and study. The daily devotionals in the book are just the starting point for us.
This book is well-written and has beautiful artwork throughout. It is practical. It is helpful. I would recommend this book to any family or small group to study together.
Kay Wolfe5 Stars Out Of 5Extraordinary and Beautiful resource for you or your familyMarch 4, 2020Kay WolfeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Foundations, by Ruth and Troy Simons, is a beautiful book of wisdom, truths and gorgeous artwork (by Ruth) that will bring light and inspiration to you and your family.
Offered as a family devotion/conversation starter, by using twelve resolutions, or biblical foundations, I loved the versatility of the content and how easily the authors guide you into intentional praising, believing, honoring and remembering the Word of God. Ruth and Troy share personal stories, reflections and questions to draw you to a place of connection to each of the twelve points. Every foundation is broken down into five topics, or days, to further contemplate the importance of each one as it becomes a natural, ruling nature in your own heart.
Whether you use this beautiful resource as a personal growth tool, a family discussion reading, or within your faith community, you and those you care about, will be transformed from the inside out.
As parents of six boys, Ruth and Troy reveal 18 years of their efforts to raise their family as a work in progress by enlisting simple steps of prayer, listening, example, and engaging and relevant interaction. These things will lead you, or your family, to better understanding and connection among each other and God's Word for you.
