    I had never heard of either of your books which is a shame because with a four year old and an almost two year old I could use the help when it comes to FHE and teaching about the Gospel. I'm particularly interested in the section on President Hinckley's Be's in Adventures with the Word of God.

    I think that the testimony chapter from Adventures with the Word of God sounds good because kids have such a hard time telling their spiritual stories.

  35. I think the chapter from Family Home Adventures on Reverence looks interesting.

    I like you on facebook.

    I like either Reverence or Charity in the Adventures With The Word Of God. As a member of the LDS church,it is interesting to see that your contest has less entries than the others, even though you do not have to buy one of your books. It shows you that the world is scared or turned off by LDS members.
