Just wanted to drop you a note of appreciation for the Shepherd's Storybook. I am using it with my 10 + 12 year old sons, who love it! Here's why I am telling people that they may want to test drive it with their children:
· They can read the stories &
the Scriptures to their children so that "family time" & story
time are combined. The stories are fun for children, so they soak up the
· There's so much Bible content + good theology + good praxis (in the form of your experience + advice) combined in an easily digestible form. The kids don't even realize how much they are learning.
· It gives them practical orientation + help for current and future ministry, right in their own home. They take in a missional perspective on life + ministry, which can be combined with whatever ministry work they are currently doing right now.
I know it wasn't written for North American kids, but I see it as having big potential for families who want an easy-to-use resource as part of discipling their children in Biblical mission + ministry.
I so appreciate how you are putting so much material online so as to make it available to the world. God bless you & Galen and your team, and please do pass on my appreciation to the Thiessens for this book as well.
