Over the last 17 years of home schooling I have spent many wonderful hours doing family devotions with the children. It has been the joy and the heart of our home schooling. Many women began asking me to write about what I’ve learned over these years, and what I found to be effective. So finally, I put pen to paper and wrote the first volume in a set of four intended books for parents to use in their family devotions.
“Hear O Israel; the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9
“This book is just fantastic – it is everything I longed for as a young parent. Rosie Boom has produced an outstanding resource for parents. As a young mother, I spent many hours scouring bookshops and parenting magazines for help in creating family times with our children. I searched for material which taught Christian truths, was inspirational and which captured the hearts of our youngsters. This book is what I was looking for. Put together with so much love and care, it will be treasured by parents everywhere. Rosie’s passion for educating children, her mother’s heart and her concern for her children’s character all shine through.” – Mary Grant, Co-founder of Parents.Inc. and editor of Parenting Magazine
“What an awesome book. It is practical, honest, and contains such powerful keys to raising children in the ways of the Master. Rosie’s heart is poured out through this book, and the love and devotion she has for Jesus is contagious. We highly recommend this excellent book for every one to read.” – Ian and Jane McCormack, Evangelist and pastor, England
“The Gift of Values has sparked my joy for teaching character-building devotions to my children, and has injected wonder and enthusiasm into the experience. Here is a tool that will help make these precious times even more memorable, fun-filled, and a real learning adventure. I appreciate the honest, real-life touches throughout the book. I’m certain that with the aid of this book, God will draw many little hearts even closer to Him.” ~ Chris Bovill, mother of six and co-ordinator of HEART (Home Educators Annual Retreat)
