Our Home is Like a Little Church

Post image for Our Home is like a Little ChurchI'm excited about Sojourn’s first children’s book, Our Home is like a Little Church, (formerly titled Pastor Daddy), written by Lindsey Blair and Bobby Gilles with illustrations by Tessa Janes.  It is now available to pre-order from Amazon.com.  The book has been published by Christian Focus Publications. From the preface:Our Home is like a Little Church was written to teach preschool children the Christian doctrine of the home as a “little church” where the father teaches his family God’s commands and leads them to worship the one true God.”

Commendations: One of the most  important features of a father’s leadership in his home is his responsibility to train his children in the Scriptures and the Christian faith, and to  nurture them in knowing and loving God.  In this sense, fathers are  pastors (i.e., shepherds) to their  children, and they would do well to embrace this truth as their own.  Our Home is like a Little Church helps both children and fathers see some of the beauty and richness of this relationship.  How good it will be when an increasing number of Christian fathers own their roles as their family’s pastors.  May this little book  be used by God to serve that end–Bruce A.
