My First Book about the Church (Mackenzie)
The world’s view of marriage can often be very different to what the Bible says. But who is right, and who should we listen to? From a very young age, children are confronted with and can be confused by these conflicts. This hardback, illustrated title helps to explain the beauties of God’s plan for marriage to children of any age, introducing them to a different, counter–cultural way of viewing these aspects of life and faith.
Jani Ortlund is the Executive Vice President of Renewal Ministries. Serving Jesus Christ through writing, speaking and discipling are her chief passions in life. Jani and Ray, Pastor of Immanuel Church, have four married children and twelve grandchildren, and minister in Nashville, Tennessee.
This book introduces children to the beauty of God’s picture of the gospel in marriage and family in a way that children can understand and love.
Russell D. Moore, President, The Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission
Beautifully illustrated, this book shares God’s truth about marriage in a winsome way while dealing with tough issues.
Susan Alexander Yates, Author of 'And Then I Had Kids' and 'Risky Faith'
Jani Ortlund carefully discusses marriage, divorce and same sex marriage in a way that young readers will understand. What a welcome work this will be for parents seeking to train their children that God’s way is indeed always best.

This little book will be a great help to any parent who cares about truly nurturing and shaping their child’s heart. Doing so in the things that really matter and in a day when it matters more and more.
