A Good Find, A Great Book

I love to read....and when I find a good book, I want to let the world know.

Well, I have....found one.
One Million Arrows is a book that every parent should own and read. Having four children of our own and feeling the cultural battle we face as we strive to train them to love God and serve Him, we understand the fight. It is a fight. Not only is the world blaring their beliefs, but our children are born into sin and have that natural struggle of right and wrong.
As you read this book, you will get energized...to not just settle for kids who love God with their lips. But yearn to raise children who want to make a difference.

Our children can't do this alone! This book gives you the courage and know how to do this, including examples from parents who have raised children to make a difference.

Are you raising fireman? You may ask yourself, "What does that mean?" Julie Ferwerda, invites you as a reader to commit to doing this. She reminds us, using a true story, of the events of 9/11. She reminds us that the firemen who saved people's lives that day went against everything normal, risked and gave their lives for those who needed help. We need to raise our children that way. Head knowledge doesn't matter to our children. "Feet knowledge" does. We must teach them, nuture them, and guide them to do good. Our children need to be reminded, if they are believers, that they have the life saving Gospel that people all over the world are needing to hear.

I promise you, that if you read this book, it will give you the backbone that most of us adults lack. Julie has a knack for giving practical, life-altering truths that will equip us as parents to raise children who will make a difference, who will be arrows launched into a dark place to bring the light of the Gospel that will affect the eternity of many people.

We are given a mandate by God to do this.

Passionately, Julie Ferwerda reminds us of this mandate.
