The Generational Family
“Today we call the family the “nuclear family” because it is the family in the modern era. The fact is, the nuclear family is the same as the biblical family with father and mother, sons and daughters, grandfathers and grandmothers. The family is the first divine institution, begun by God in the garden of Eden and no other earthly institution has priority over it. It will remain until the end of the age and those who build their homes upon the principles that God has given will be blessed.”
A one year (52-week) Children’s Baptist Catechism is included as an Appendix. The purpose of the catechism is to teach the basic truths of God’s Word in the understanding of child-like faith.
Salvation, Security, & Assurance
“Do you know Jesus Christ as your Savior? The answer to that question is the most important answer you will give in your life. In fact, it is the answer that determines where you will spend eternity. We cannot look for the answer in human philosophy, science, culture, or even religion. If we are to be sure of our salvation, the answer must come from God Himself and we can only find God’s answer in His Word,
“Wouldn’t you like to speak to your loved ones in the future? Dear Grandchild is a collection of letters written by the author to his future grandchildren. Of course, they have not yet been born, so it is a one-way conversation. Written over a ten-year period, Grandfather (as the author sees himself) constantly probes and gently instructs coming generations to continue in the manners and morals of their ancestors.”
“Wouldn’t you like to speak to your grandfather or grandmother even though they have been in heaven for a long time? Dear Grandfather is a collection of letters written by the author who is now a grandfather himself. He recalls his grandfather’s wisdom and relates the culture of the 21st century which his grandfather never saw, and probably wouldn’t have believed if he had seen it. Though grandfathers are no longer with us, their wisdom and loving care speak to us across the years.
These letters show the unique effect that grandparents have on our lives, while also relating to children and grandchildren the importance of these family relationships. Through these letters the reader will be taken back a hundred years, then forward again to today, probing the questions and history that connect the generations.”

“The purpose of this children’s catechism is to teach the basic truths of God’s Word in the understanding of child-like faith.
