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

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.

Jason Houser, Seeds Family Worship, Nashville, Tennessee

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.
