As a big fan of all things “Family Ministry” I’ve had a great opportunity to read Michelle Anthony’s new book, Dreaming of More for the Next Generation: A Lifetime Faith ignited by Family Ministry. I’ve been digesting this book for the past month, and I’m telling you…this book is a game-changer. It’s been one of the more thought provoking books I’ve read in a long time. Dreaming of More has helped me probe my own expectations of what a successful Family Ministry looks like, and has introduced some new angles that I’ve never thought about.
Specifically I loved the emphasis on teaching kids and students to respond to the Holy Spirit. This is a totally forgotten trend in Family, Children, and Student ministry. We don’t always teach our kids how to listen, wait patiently, and individually respond to the Holy Spirit leading them. It’s not some charismatic, holy-roller concept; it’s the Bible.
I’d love to give away one of the books, and you can enter your name in the drawing below!
