Family Devotional

I love getting new books for my kiddos that teach them biblical truths {can I get a second to that?}. I found out that Westminister Bookstore is running a sweet, budget friendly, deal on this book. Right now it's $6.99 {without sale it's 19.99}.

This is a devotional book for the family that is set up to help parents teach biblical stories to their little tots in ten-minutes. Check out the description here.

The following are two endorsements from men I admire greatly:

“This is simply an outstanding book, and Christian families need it right now. I have never seen a devotional book that is so well suited to family devotions and to children, even as it is faithful in relating biblical truth. This book will help any Christian parent lead family devotions that will be memorable, faithful, and practical for Christian living. I’ll admit this too—parents will find that they love the stories, illustrations, and learning suggestions along with their children. Marty Machowski has written a wonderful book.”—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary {My husbands school!}

“Parents, you know that teaching your children God’s Word—especially with children of varying ages—is never easy. But Marty Machowski has just made it easier. Long Story Short guides your family through Old Testament stories, each one highlighting the love and faithfulness of God and the hope of a Savior to come. To use this guide is to have an experienced father and pastor assisting you every night. These moments together, informed by Marty’s book, will help your children understand and be amazed by the grace of God as revealed in the Old Testament.”—C.J. Mahaney, President, Sovereign Grace Ministries

Just wanted to pass this along because it looks amazing and it's super cheap now {the sale is possibly ending in the morning} I'm ordering mine in a few minutes! You can purchase the book here.

  3. I was just talking to a father yesterday at church on how he feels they fail at family devos. I will suggest this book to him. Thanks!
