The Rag Doll
Carmichael, Stephanie; Green, Jessica
As a father of three young children, I can’t think of a better way to teach and train my kids about how we serve God than through conversations on the simple things in life. Stephanie Carmichael’s books are wonderful tools to both remind me and teach my kids who God is. Just the other day, when our trip to the park was canceled because of rain, we reminded our complaining children of the story we read in Grumpy Day and how he gives us the rain for a reason. Each of her four books reminds my wife and I of ways we can bring up God-talk in the everyday happenings of life. As an added bonus, my kids love the books. Claire, my oldest daughter, callsThe Rag Dollher favorite book. In short, these books are great take-home tools to apply the thinking of Trellis and Vine. And also great fun for kids to read while training parents in vine work. A perfect tandem."- Marty Sweeney, Executive Director, Matthias Media North AmericaSee All
"During our Trellis and Vine workshops, one of the biggest mind-shifts that need to take place is on the location of disciple making. The default position for most is that discipleship happens only in the classroom or structured one-to-one meetings (accountability partnerships). But as most people intuit, discipleship happens best in the day-to-day happenings of life. As we apply God’s truth and wisdom to our lives&mdsah;our work, our dinner conversations, our reactions to unexpected events, big and small—we begin to see maturity develop.See All
Buy them. Read them with your kids. And be ready to answer their questions about the God who made us and loves us all."- Tony Payne, co-author of The Trellis and the VineSee All
