At The Good Portion Books we delight in the doctrines of God because knowing God is what we were created for. God reveals himself to us through the pages of Scripture so that we can know him. This is true no matter how young or old we are.
We’ve written our series to encourage women to immerse themselves in the depths of Christian doctrine for the enjoyment of knowing God. Women from 12 to 112 will benefit from our books. But you can never start too young on the quest to know God. That’s why we want to recommend a new book for toddlers and preschoolers by Bethany Darwin, the former children’s ministry director of the United Christian Church of Dubai. It’s called Sing and Play Big Bible Truths, and it covers many of the doctrines that we cover in The Good Portion Series.
In Sing and Play Big Bible Truthsyou’ll find songs, stories with hand motions, games and activities, short Bible verses, themed snacks, and simple arts and crafts all working together to reinforce big Bible truths—doctrine. With chapters like “The Bible is God’s word,” “God is good,” and “Jesus died on the cross,” your child will be a theologian in no time.
As a brand-new, twenty-something Christian, spending a year doing intern youth ministry, I had just shared the gospel to a class of jaded twelve-year-olds, when a boy swamped in an over-sized school blazer approached me. By the look on his face the cogs of his mind were spinning fast. He politely asked if he could ask me a question and said, “What if you’re wrong? What if it all just isn’t true?”
Mothers who delight in the doctrines of God are gifts to their children and models for younger women. At The Good Portion Books we want to increase your delight. So to celebrate Mother’s Day, we are having a drawing to give away two sets of the 4 books currently in our series.
To enter the drawing, Like our Facebook page and tag one other woman in the comments on the Mother’s Day post. You’ll be entered into the drawing along with the mother, daughter or friend you tagged, and if your name is drawn both of you will win the books!
You may enter as many times as you like, as long as you tag a different person each time.
Going to The Gospel Coalition’s Women’s Conference this June?
Join Keri Folmar, Margaret Kostenberger, Jenny Manley, Courtney Reissig and Mary Willson as they discuss why understanding doctrine is crucial for life and ministry.
Do women in your church seem to be living for the moment instead of in light of eternity? Does your small group Bible study skim the surface without going deeply into the Word? Do you want to help women know how to suffer life’s trials with joy?
If you google the phrase “mom saves child from cougar,” you’ll
find stories of other heroic mamas. One mother used a
camping cooler, and another a water bottle to rescue
their children from an attacking cougar. One brave mom managed to save her
child but died
from her own injuries.
