I love when I get the opportunity to sit down & read books. Recently I have decided that no matter what I read I will be writing my thoughts down about what I personally took away from the author. Now. the first project seemed kind of weird seeing as how I read a book entitled Impress Faith on Your Kids by Mark Holmen. In these kinds of books I will try to not only comment what I think about the information (since I can't comment on being a parent . because I'm not a parent). Instead, I will try to give some commentary on what I find to be most beneficial from my stand point. I will write reviews according to my knowledge of God's Word & whether such books are deemed, by me, a good resource for ministers who are in similar positions as I - not having kids.
Mark Holmen's book Impress Faith on Your Kids is a great resource for many people - whether you be a minister without kids or huge family. Through the book, Mark offers not only practical advice, but gives ideas for certain practices that can be applied within the home. The advice & practices are all supported Biblically & are presented in a way that makes this book great for personal use within an individual family. If you are a minister in search of resources or need a way to present the D6 model to parents of your congregation then this is an ideal read. Mark also includes very personal letters to the readers & discussion questions that would make this book a good resource for a small group of people trying to implement the D6 model into their families.
Impress Faith on Your Kids is written in a very readable way that connects to the minds of people needing the information from a mind that has digested & lived the information first-hand. From identifying what it is to be a 'great parent' to the transition D6 requires to the problems Christian parents face, Mark discusses very well what the families in our churches in America can establish to start their journey to being a D6 family.
