Parenting and home schooling boys is an adventure in itself! Since our family is very involved in church and AWANA, missions have been something they have been taught early on. However, as my oldest was growing older, I knew I wanted to add more readings about heroes from our past. I wanted him and his brothers to know what sacrifices for the Lord our real heroes had made. I wanted my kids to be able to name folks like Gladys Alyward, DL Moody, and many others. When my kids think about who to look up to, I don’t want them immediately turning to the worldly, secular movie and music stars that many teens idolize today. I wanted them from a young age to know in depth our missionaries.
When we were living in the DC area a few years ago, I attended a home school conference, and YWAM was there. They were having a massive conference sale, so I bought the entire set! It was one of the best investments I have made. YWAM is an amazing and Godly company who has a heart for the gospel. They are the producers of this wonderful series.
We have enjoyed every single book in this set. My oldest is now able to listen in church and know the references to missionaries that are spoken of. He even knew one his Dad didn’t! That was pretty amazing for him. (Boys like competition too! lol) Recently, I was contacted by YWAM and asked to do a review and also a giveaway. It is my honor and privilege to be giving away not just one book, but the entire first set of this series. This giveaway consists of books 1-5!! This is a GREAT start to anyone who has a heart for missions and wants to pass it down to your children!
Have fun and many blessings as you learn about Christian Heroes!
