It's All in the Family . . . The word "family" has a very different meaning today than it did not much more than ten years ago. It used to be the "family" meant two parents and their children all living together, often with the father being the provider and the mother the homemaker. Today, fewer children live in that kind of family. No doubt in your class you have some kids who live in single-parent homes or step-families, or at least one child who is living in an abusive situation. In America today, many millions of our children are experiencing great stress in the setting that God intended to be the source of love, security, and teaching about life. Even children who live in two parent families are often anxious about the possibility of a divorce happening in their families, and those who have experienced divorce or abuse struggle to cope with their situations. This unit will address some of these issues, giving your students a safe place to talk about any concerns they may have about their families. It will also present perspective by reassuring them that there are no perfect families and that they can enjoy living in their families when they learn that everyone has to work hard to make a family special. You will also have an opportunity to share with them the privilege they have to belong to God's family, and show them how they can respond to God's invitation to do so. and

The True History of God's Words. There is not one history of the Bible, but two. One is a history of God preserving His words through His people. The other is of the devil using the Roman Catholic church to pervert God's words through her scholars. Written in a down-to-earth style, and packed with cartoon illustrations by Jack Chick, Daniels shows that the Bibles Rome gave us are really clever counterfeits, designed to eliminate God's preserved words in English, the KJV. You will see why the KJV is the only Bible you can trust.

Consider the Stars will not only be a delight to read, it will be a valued experience to be shared over and over again. Whether you make reading the seasonal stories a tradition or use its lessons to supplement your Bible study, church service or simply entertain your youth group, Consider the Stars will be an active tool in your library. In addition to the sketches and correlating lesson plans that make up the majority of the book, a short study of acting is included at the end of the book with its focus bent toward the Christian actor by understanding that everything a person chooses to do or not to do is based on a belief system. Why is drama important in presenting moral principles? It’s often difficult to repeat what was preached even a moment ago, much less apply it, yet we can all recall a song or story that we heard even decades ago. Likewise, whether you believe he is who he says he is or not, Jesus is remembered mainly because he didn’t tell us which way to go...he showed us through the stories he told and the life he lived.

Most Christian books have a problem. For they speak from an “adult perspective”, and not a child’s. They leave out, the most important aspect of the foundation when walking with God, and that is the child. They say. do ABCDE, to get a better walk with God. That’s fine, but we forget about the growth of the child and there characteristics, is the Christian life template for an adult to look at and learn from. This is the reason why children come before adults; it’s so we can see who God sees. God doesn’t see us as we see each other as adults, in arrogance. God doesn’t care about your social status, or you can have more degrees than a thermometer, you are his child. God sees adults as tall children. So now let’s look deeper into a child’s life, and how it relates to Gods foundation... the family. Understanding the child, then you will understand yourself, and what God wants from us as adults. Looking at the genesis of a child we can see many attributes and characteristics of a child that God wants to see in us. We can shadow, and be a reflection of “childlike”, not childish as Jesus said in the book of Mathew. Jesus clearly states ‘unless you’re like a child, you shall not enter....’ Right off the bat, Jesus is drawing the line in the sand. Children have many characteristics that we miss as adults, and forget that we went through these same characteristics ourselves. From looking up, having child like faith, being able to be led, humility, believability, no pride or self righteousness etc. This fascinating book being different, will enhance any reader/parent to take a stronger look at their own Christian life, and check off the boxes to see if there in alignment with Gods standards. There a chapter on being blind when your awake, yet we trust him in sleep, and other great gems of wisdom.
