Book of the Month
This month’s recommended resource is a series of counseling books for children, published by New Growth Press ($12 each). The three books in this series address anger, anxiety, and pride in a way that children can grasp. They are beautifully illustrated and will make great gifts for family members seeking to teach their children biblical principles. For more children’s resources as well as counseling-related resources for adults, please see the booktable servants.
