Absolutely Inspiring! Feb 5, 2009
In our busy lives, very seldom, do we stop to ask God if we're truly fulfilling His purposes in our lives. "The Mission Minded Family" opens that line of communication between you and God to have a discussion about His will for your life. Ann Dunagan provides a powerful resource in order to fulfill the Great Commission. She has "walked the walk" and offers every bit of fantastic advice that a person can possibly offer, when leading someone to the decision to follow Christ.If you desire to follow Him, let this book be your first step in discovering what you are called to do and allow Ann Dunagan help you on the learning curve of HOW to do it!
If you're simply wondering what God's purposes are for your life, you may very well find the answer within the pages of this book. Don't be surprised if you hear God speaking to you in greater ways than you ever imagined. If you are a church leader, I can't imagine a better resource to promote to your congregation and a better gift to give to your missionary families. Ann Dunagan walks you through her and her husband's lives as a missionaries and sprinkles it with wisdom coming from her young children who have experienced the power of God in and through their lives. The book is not only a resource that provides you with countless "how-to's," but it is filled with the Dunagan Family's missionary experiences that will inspire you and draw you nearer to God.
A great resource for any Christian with a missions heart Nov 23, 2008
I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. This is the first book that I have seen that incorporates both an emphasis on missions and on family. I have noticed that many have a heart for one or the other, but unfortunately they become compartmentalized and separated throughout our lives. The author does a great job conveying the important characteristics of a mission minded family, but more importantly she gives hundreds of practical steps which one can initiate immediately. I myself will implement many of the ideas that she has suggested both now and in the future. I would suggest that anyone with a desire to impact the world with the gospel get this book ASAP.
Give Your Family a Dangerous Destiny! Oct 30, 2008
I loved this book! In a time in our country where the tendency is to keep our money and time and children very safe, this book encourages - even pushes - us to get out in the world and make a real difference with the resources we've been given. Ann Dunagan is no arm-chair missionary...the pages of the book are filled with actual experiences that she and her husband and kids have done for many years. It totally inspired me to take some big risks and help my kids learn to love the world beyond our doorstep.
Educational and Inspirational book about the mission field. Oct 30, 2008
"The Mission Minded Family" by Ann Dunagan is the coolest book! It has everything: hymns, stories of missions, mini biographies of missionaries, skits, a calendar of international holidays and suggestions for how to pray on those days, tools for teaching mission-mindedness, and even practical tips for missionary travel. This is an educational and informative book whether you're planning to be a foreign missionary, a local missionary, or just learn about the field.
