Defenders of the Family, assemble! God’s magnificent plan for us rests upon the strength of the family. In this engaging children’s book, discover the roles and teachings needed to unite your family, from devoted parents to extended members, all centered on the power of the gospel. Help your children see their families as they can be: incredible, empowered, eternal followers of Jesus.
A picture book with comic book style illustrations, Defenders of the Family takes Family: A Proclamation to the World and breaks it into understandable verse for even the youngest reader. We used the hardback as a read aloud to reinforce principles such as enjoying activities together, work as a family, strong marriage and the eternal nature of gender. The target audience are children of the LDS faith, but all readers would enjoy the vibrant colors and timely message.
