Product Description

52 Weekly Devotions for Families Called to Serve helps parents develop in their children a lifelong love and relationship with God. Its easy-to-follow format with short Scripture readings and quick devotions builds foundations of faith through family interactions. Optional hands-on activities and chat prompts help parents carry the thoughts throughout the week to intentionally share Jesus in daily life.

This book helps us understand the uniqueness of families who serve others in many different capacities. Though the book does specifically address families that serve in the military, as firstresponders, and in other “front line” ways, it is applicable for EVERY family that is serving the Lord and others in their home, church, and community. This book is a great encouragement to be a family with the heart and commitment of Joshua 24:15 “As for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.”

Each devotional also includes “Frontline Tips” that address both families with someone on the frontlines as well as ALL families. Sample “Frontline Tips:”
• Discuss the choice to serve in a more dangerous career because of God’s calling.
• Make sure each child knows how to make an emergency call. Post the numbers in a place where every family member can see them.
