Item description for Gather Round the Dinner Fable: Read Aloud Story Devotions for Families by Steven James...
Overview God knows the tastiest way to serve up truth is with a little story. He knows we learn, think, remember, and communicate through stories. And He knows telling stories is the best way to impact us for eternity. Parables, fables, myths, and fairy tales have always been the most popular and effective way to share a spiritual or moral truth with the next generation because stories connect with both the head and the heart. They fly beneath our radar and move us closer to the place where we can encounter the truth. In Gather 'Round the Dinner Fable, kid-friendly parables and fables told in a witty and heartwarming style make learning biblical truths fun and memorable for the whole family.

Family Devotions Made Simple and FUN! Feb 20, 2007
Buckle up your safety belt, and get ready for the ride of your life, Mom and Dad! Although parenting sometimes feels a lot like riding a roller coaster, it is up to us to not only ride the hills and valleys with our children, but also guide their paths as well. That's where family devotions come into play.
But who has the time for family devotions? Today, many Christian families are simply relying on "lifestyle evangelism" as their only ministry to their children, hoping their kids "catch" their faith like they "catch" a cold.
But that's not enough. As parents we need open the door for our children to not only catch our faith, but grow their own. And it's actually possible with Gather `Round the Dinner Fable by Steven James.
For the past several months, our family has spent one evening a week after dinner reading a devotion from Gather `Round the Dinner Fable, and have seen the positive impact on our kids.
In Gather 'Round the Dinner Fable, kid-friendly parables and fables told in a witty and heartwarming style, make learning biblical truths fun and memorable for the whole family.
There is no parental prep time needed, so you can just jump in head first. The devotions appeal to a wide range of ages, from toddler to teenager.
Each devotion follows the F.A.B.L.E. format: Find this object (prop for object lesson), Ask these questions, Begin the story, Learn from Scripture, End with prayer.
My husband, Mike, and I even have the chance to talk about the lesson of the day from our own "grown up" perspective, and have gained insights as well.
Most of all, we have the opportunity not only impart our faith on our children, but watch them grow and nurture their own.
Gather `Round the Dinner Fable is a MUST for any family with kids seeking a simple way to make family devotions possible.
