Heavenly Father's Day
Heavenly Father's Day
How to Develop a Personal Relationship with God
About the Book
Do you treat your Heavenly Father like he’s a dead-beat dad?
Do you think he only wants to see you on Sunday morning?
Do you think he’s off doing his own thing the rest of the week and doesn’t care about you?
The truth is, your Heavenly Father wants to be a hands-on dad. He wants to be there every day of the week.
He wants to give you the benefit of his wisdom. He wants to guide you and help you through the storms of life.
He wants to have a personal relationship with you.
Heavenly Father’s Day is the day set aside to honor your Heavenly Father, spend time with him, and show how much you love him.
So when is that? It’s every day.
What do you give the heavenly dad who has everything?
What does your Heavenly Father want from you?
How can you get to know him better?
Through modern-day parables anyone can relate to, Ms. Hines brings fresh insight to the age-old question of what God really wants from you... and why you should care.
She courageously challenges popular (conservative) Christian thinking on topics such as ministry, gay marriage, the Bible, prophecy, Islam, and the law of tithing.
If you think how you live is more important than what you believe, stick around. You're going to like this!
