Our Special Christmas Sale Helps You Do What Really Matters with Polar Bears, Purple Gallinules, Numbats & More!


This morning I'm sharing a bit from a blog post from a year ago about why Children's Ministry matters to me. I wrote, "Today I'm inspired and motivated by remembering Juan, my children, and my grandsons and by knowing the children in my church and community and in yours, are loved by Jesus even more than I could ever love them! Children's Ministry matters. We need to have vision, passion and a plan so our ministries reach children TODAY!" We certainly are able to also be inspired and motivated by this to hand down confident faith to the children we love - yes, it absolutely matters today what we do with them to hand down confident faith - the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books will help you do exactly this!

Barna's studies show we are losing Gen Z at double the rate of any previous generation - it matters what we do today to help the children and young people we love know God loves them and they are able to know and love Him back. It matters what we do today to help them know they are able to believe God is real and God and science DO go together. It matters for us to hand down confident faith, so when we talk with them about interesting, surprising animals and how they help us see these things about God and science, we are doing something which truly matters - we are handing down confident faith!

For example, in Polar Bears, Purple Gallinules, Numbats & More! children will learn about a truly surprising fish - the Psychedelic Frogfish - have you heard of this fish before? Well, it is extremely rare . . . it is only found in the waters around Bali and Ambon Island, Indonesia. You may think it swims in the ocean, it is a fish after all, but it does not. It uses its fins to "walk" along the bottom of the ocean, or it "bounces" like a big beachball to get where it is going! This fish's orange and white markings help it blend in with the coral where it lives and each fish's swirls are unique to them - like our fingerprints are to us. When you learn about creatures such as the Psychedelic Frogfish, you are able to see how God planned for it to be just as it is. When you talk about this with the children you love, you will be able to help them have a confident faith!

Our world is filled with interesting and surprising animals - and when we learn about them we will find we are better able to understand how God is real and God and science DO go together! You will find all of the Life on the Goldilocks Planet  books on Amazon and at this link - and they are currently on sale. Please share this post with the parents and grandparents you know. (And the answer to the question is - Polar Bears! You will find out about them - and Amazon Pink River Dolphins and Blue-Tongued Skinks - and Hairy Armadillos, Purple Gallinules, Javelinas, Otters, Opossum, Chilean Flamingos, Sunfish, and Numbats in Polar Bears, Purple Gallinules, Numbats & More!)
