What Responsibility is Mine?
Providing In The Lord's Way For Our Families
de Cynthia Garritson Ellis - Author and Illustrator
Anciently the Prophet Isaiah spoke of a day of chariots without number. He described men stuffing their faces with one hand, while stealing food from their neighbors plates, with the other.
Are we there yet? The average American family owns more automobiles and recreational vehicles than we have licensed drivers or even children!
Justification in digging a pit for one's neighbor has become an acceptable standard so long as it is within legal boundaries.
Easy Credit and abandoned debt move as a plague across the nation & world. the financial future of our families and nations are threatened.
Beautifully illustrated, this book provides powerful, 'to the point' affirmations, to assist families and individuals in becoming self-reliant socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and economically.
