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.

Endorsements

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.

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.
