Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"After 25 years in Christian ministry, Dr. Michelle Anthony developed a ”parent-powered” family-friendly approach that nurtures authentic faith. In this refreshing new construct she emphasizes the importance of the Holy Spirit as teacher—with parents the primary instructors, not the church or Sunday school. Her expressive voice describes practical, creative ideas that encourage and motivate children and teenagers to ”listen for” the Holy Spirit’s guidance. Her speech is warm and rhythmic as she uses stories that reflect today’s issues to illustrate encounters with the Holy Spirit. Children and families learn to ”flex their faith muscles” with this new tactic, supported but no longer controlled by the church."

    A sermon on love from brian to adam

    This is for you adam. Love jesus loves you and i dont mean lightly i mean he was willing to die type of love this is actually what he did for us, die on the cross. In first corinthians 16 verse 14 " let all that you do be done with love. And there are people out there like you adam that have just given and given untill they just snaped. Like my dad he was the kindest person ever but he just kept giving and giving until he snaped and broke becouse he tried to give to much and forgot to refill his cup. Im not trying to say giving is bad im just trying to say make sure you refill and relax in gods presence once in a while. Just remember god loves you and let no one tell you diffrent adam. Its ok to relax for a little while no one is perfect and can keep going and going. Just trust god and he will make sure everything turns out all right. REMEBER we all love you and are always there for you expecally god. My love be with you allways adam.
