Evy's Endorsements...Books Worth Reading!~

Mother by Kathleen Norris

Women! Moms! Daughters! Here’s a WONDERFUL book for you! Have you forgotten where joy can be found in the everyday, mundane life of helping children, runny noses, diapers, mounds of laundry and endless cooking? Are you a daughter chaffing at the dull and uninteresting way life seems to be going for you, as you grudgingly help your mother in the daily routine of family life? Is there restlessness in your heart about the unending effort and sacrifice as a wife and mother? Does home making seems so commonplace, the bearing of children so ordinary? Read on, friend, if any of these things have crossed your mind, for you and Mother’s Margaret have some things in common! This wonderful story of a young woman's journey from discontentment to understanding joy in everyday life is tops on my list of great books for women, moms and girls. Margaret sees her godly mother sweetly spending her life for her family, yet perceives it to be slaving away for a husband and family, utter drudgery, being tied down in a servant- like existence as a wife and mother. Walk a ways with her and learn what she learned in this very readable and heartwarming story that could easily change your heart!

Happy Reading!

Family Discipleship

We have been on an amazing journey. God has opened our eyes to personally discipling our children. In fact, we don't know how we were so blind to this before, but we were. Now we realize that we need to be intentional for it to happen, to be intimate with Christ ourselves, and to cut out distractions that are stealing our time away.

Statistics show that if we leave the discipling of our children to the church, many of our children will not walk with the Lord when they are older. Most youth today do not even have a grounded biblical worldview.

How does one get started? What is a biblical worldview? How do I disciple my children? Check out the books below. They are outstanding resources that will help you gain a greater vision in shepherding the ones God has entrusted to you and how to get started. These could be a life-changing gift for your family or someone you love who has children or has a heart to impact children for Christ.

God bless,


"These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up." Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Disciple Like Jesus for Parents

by Alan Melton and Paul Dean

The church is losing over two million children every year and they are not returning. What can parents do about this? Jesus showed us the way. Immediately following three years of making disciples, Jesus commanded us to do the same. Disciple Like Jesus For Parents offers practical, creative ways to make disciples of your children. Learn how His approach can transform your family into the image of Christ and allow you to enjoy the great blessings of children.

"Get your highlighter ready. This book is an easy-to-read, enjoyable, truth-filled book. I hope to pass this book on to many parents, whether they homeschool or not, because this book urges us on in discipling our children right where we are at. Then God will progress us as we grasp the vision for our family and children. I love this book!" April, Books on the Path

Family Driven Faith

by Voddie Baucham, Jr.

Family Driven Faith equips Christian parents with the tools they need to raise children biblically in a post-Christian, anti-family society. God has not left us alone in raising godly children. He has given us timeless precepts and principles for multi-generational faithfulness, especially in Deuteronomy 6. God's simple command to Moses to teach the Word diligently to the children of Israel serves as the foundation of Family Driven Faith.

"Voddie Baucham has written an insightful and convicting book challenging parents to prioritize the spiritual development of their children. Only read this book if the salvation and sanctification of your children is of the utmost importance to you." Tony Evans, pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas

Bold is definitely a word to describe this book. Voddie unashamedly promotes homeschooling and the re-thinking of youth groups. His practical tools for beginning to disciple our children are extremely useful. He explains what a Christian biblical worldview is and how to begin teaching our children these truths. This book is not for the faint-hearted.

Two other great books that we have previously written about in this blog are Everyday Talk and Training Hearts, Teaching Minds. For those reviews, please click on their titles in the category menu. Two more wonderful tools!
