Jesus says that if you want to enter his kingdom, you need to be a child again. No doubting the truth, scrambling for stuff, or fussing about the future. Just pure, simple living-and a faith that believes Christ's words, embraces his love, and follows his example. But how, in this complicated world, can adults live like that? According to Johnny Parker, they can listen and learn from the children around them. Kids teach profound spiritual truths. They're the prime example of childlike faith, and their insights transform lives. In this book, Parker shares fresh perspectives on life and God that he learned from watching his sons and reflecting on his own childhood. He has compiled these reminders into delightful, thought-provoking stories that inspire and encourage world weary adults. With Faith like a Child, they'll return to the simple joy of loving God.

From the Back Cover:

"Johnny Parker has a great way of recognizing spiritual truths in everyday activities, and this book captures those moments." Dennis Rainey, president, FamilyLife "Brilliant! Easy to read, yet profound! A breath of fresh air! Using simple stories of our relationship with our kids, Johnny uncovers a deeper insight into how much God loves me-the parent." Susan Alexander Yates, author of And Then I Had Kids Go Ahead. Be a Kid Again Jesus said that to enter his kingdom, we must be like children. We need a pure and simple faith that believes his words, embraces his love, and follows his example. But how, in this complicated world, can we live like that? We learn from the kids around us. They teach the honesty and humility of trusting in the heavenly Father's care and immerse us in profound spiritual truths. They're the prime example of childlike faith, and their insights can change our life. "Watching my sons has given me a rich and fresh perspective of life and of God," explains Johnny Parker. "It's as though I've grown from a water-ski level faith to a deep-sea intimacy with God, being reminded of the simple and the things that matter the most." In Faith like a Child, he shares these reminders in delightful and thought-provoking stories that will inspire, encourage, and draw you close to the Father. So go ahead. Be a kid again. You'll discover the simple joy of loving God.
