I’ll confess that when I received a copy of Fight For Her by Plumb my expectations weren’t that high. Not that I didn’t think she was capable. But, my training and interests are in biblical studies. I love to read theology. And, I’m a guy. The prospect of reading a book by a mom for…

In her book, Parenting in the Pew: Guiding Your Children into the Joy of Worship, Dr. Robbie Castleman has many insightful and informative things to say. One chapter that I found particularly helpful and practical is called “Sunday Morning Starts on Saturday Night.” The core truth is summed up in the chapter title, but if you…

Parenting in the Pew by Robbie Castleman

The fun title and light-hearted cover design of Parenting in the Pew disguise both the breadth and substance of its wonderful content. So don’t be fooled into thinking it’s only relevant to you if you have young (school-aged) children. And certainly don’t be fooled into thinking it’s not worth every penny you invest in purchasing…
