This useful resource belongs in every church library and will be a welcome resource for children’s ministers and Sunday School teachers. Slattery’s clear biblically based answers will prove useful as a springboard for answering questions. This resource is also highly recommended to parents who desire to instill Christian faith in their children. It is designed more as a reference book than a devotional book although it could be used as such. Upper elementary children may find this book useful for personal reading and reference.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

Unfortunately, spring is also just really busy. I usually take a class in the spring time which means I have papers and work to finish. Also May is so busy that it seems each Saturday is gone. An added task this year is that I really want to get the garage cleaned out. I think I might have to get my garden started first and then finish the garage. Now I just need to finish deciding what to plant. If I'm not careful I think I'd be prone to turn the entire yard into a garden.

I love my Christian brothers and sisters who choose to adopt. However, there are so many logical fallacies with the above statement.
1. How many of these 147 million are truly orphans with no parents at all? So many children at orphanages have living parents who believe they can't afford to care for their children. With economic development in their home countries, these parents could keep their kids.
2. If all orphans were adopted, there would just be more orphans. I fear international adoption only increases the number of parents who abandon their children because they feel they are unable to care for them.
3. Let's encourage sustainable, economic development around the world to increase the standard of living and decrease the number of orphaned and vulnerable children around the world. By all means adopt, but let's tackle the needs of orphans and foster children here in the U.S.
