Big Beliefs! Small Devotionals Introducing Your Family to Big Truths (Paperback)
It is a wonderful privilege to watch children start to grasp the precious truths of Scripture. Parents may hope to see this in a family devotion time, only to become overwhelmed and exhausted by the daily difficulties involved. We need help!
Big Beliefs! is a devotional expressly intended to enable parents to succeed and children to grow in grace and knowledge. Three weekly readings accompanied by suggested Scripture passages introduce and simply explain thirty-three key theological concepts found in the Westminster Confession of Faith (included in its entirety, in modern English). Questions following each reading will help you to start a conversation about what you have learned each day. This nonthreatening, encouraging devotional will make a comprehensive beginning to your child’s understanding of Christianity’s big beliefs.

“Big Beliefs! is a great book: (1) it’s faithful, telling children the truth about God, his Word, and what his people must believe; (2) it’s substantive, not dumbing down doctrine to present it to children; and (3) it’s realistic, providing language, illustrations, and lesson length that will work for real families who have real children.”
—Starr Meade, Author, Training Hearts, Teaching Minds: Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism
“A family devotional teaching the most important truths in the world in simple bite-size chunks with up-to-date illustrations and stimulating questions. Why didn’t someone think of this before? I commend this excellent resource to all Christian families.”
