In our attempts to pass the baton of truth on to the next generation, nothing could be more important than for our children (and their parents!) to be grounded in their understanding of the character and ways of God. Godís Names is a wonderful, Scripture-saturated resource for those who desire to plant seeds of faith in the hearts and minds of the children they love and influence.

I don't know who will read this but I just had to let you know, I absolutely LOVE this book!!!
I got this to go through with my 7 year old. We've been working our way through it slowly. I often take several weeks on 1 chapter because I try to help my son, Mark, see the names of God in action as we are going about our busy day.
Because my son is growing up in a Christian home and Sunday School and because he is now in a Christian school (7 hours a day) that daily teaches from a Bible curriculum, it's been a challenge to teach him something "new". Last night, we got to the chapter in God's Names, on The Most High, El Elyon. What wonderful questions!!! And, as we discussed this chapter and I started talking about King Nebuchadnezzar and his dishonoring God with his pride, he looked at me and said, "What, I've never heard that story!"
So, I pulled out an NLT sitting nearby and read him the story directly from Daniel and he was mesmerized. So much good discussion followed. THANK YOU!!!!
Thank you for staying faithful to the Word. Thank you for helping me make the Word of God come alive to him. I cherish those moments where I can profoundly pass my faith in such a great, big magnificent God on to my little one.
I can't wait for the next book and I'm most definitely passing this on to my friends!
God bless you guys for your work. There is so much 'fluff" out there for kids and I know they can handle deeper truths than that. We need this ministry in the body of Christ!!!!
THANK YOU for your faithfulness.
