Travis Spencer, pastor at Mattoon, submitted a book by Mark Batterson, Praying Circles Around Your Children, as a great resource in childraising.
"This book has really motivated me and my wife in investing in our children," says pastor Spencer. "This book on praying for your children is inspirational, challenging, and authentic. You can read the entire book in an hour, but then spend the rest of your life apppling it to your parenting responsibility. We literally read it out loud while driving home from vacation. We talked for the next hour about how we can be more intentional about praying for and discipling our children. Great book!"
