Parenting in the Pew: Guiding Your Children Into the Joy of Worship

Front Cover
InterVarsity Press, 1993 - Children in public worship - 125 pages
Sunday morning isn't a success if we have only managed to keep the kids quiet. And there's more to church for kids than trying out their new coloring books. Children are at church for the same reason as Mom and Dad: for the privilege of worshiping God. Burning with an infectious passion for worship, Robbie Castleman has learned how to teach children to praise God. She shows us how important it is to take our children's worship seriously. And then, with nitty-gritty advice and a touch of humor, she shows us how we can help our children (from toddlers to teenagers) participate in the most worthwhile and exciting act anybody can do.
