- Publisher "The love of God and children shines through these pages which extend Jesus's call for us to be like children. This book helps us prepare for kingdom entry by both illustrating and carefully describing how and why the spiritual journey begins at childhood. . . . It is open-eyed adventure and deeply fun."--Rev. Jerome Berryman"There is nothing more important than [children's] spiritual formation, yet we often leave this most important function to untrained persons. Dr. Stonehouse's book provides clear and understandable teaching for children's teachers and parents and also for teacher's teachers."--Rev. Marti Ensign"Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey . . . is thoroughly grounded and altogether responsible advice based on scholarly interpretations from the research world and the most careful sort of Christian insight."--Dr. Ted Ward"This is a delightful book....Dr. Stonehouse's personal experiences with children communicates to the reader her value and appreciation for each individual child."--Dr. Virginia Patterson

- Publisher Understanding how a child's faith forms is crucial to knowing how adults can most significantly enhance the child's spiritual development. Joining Children on the Spiritual Journey provides parents, teachers, and Christian education leaders with valuable insights into spiritual formation during childhood. By carefully "setting the stage" through liturgy, sacred stories, and parables, Christian educators can help children meet with God.
