The Little Boy Down the Road: Short Stories & Essays on the Beauty of Family Life
by:Douglas W. Phillips
The most beautiful and life-changing stories are not found in the pages of newspapers, but in the everyday events in the life of the Christian family.

The most beautiful and life-changing stories are not found in the pages of newspapers, but in the everyday events in the life of the Christian family. They are the stories of boys who long for their fathers, of husbands who become better men because of the love of faithful brides, and of little girls who learn to dream great dreams for God. These are moments that really matter -- the ones that count for eternity. The Little Boy Down the Road is a collection of humorous and thought-provoking short stories and essays on family and fatherhood that reveal the beauty of the Christian household. It is a book about the nobility of the commonplace events in life and the special epiphanies of parenthood--the moments of supreme clarity where parents realize, as if coming out of a slumber--the inexpressible preciousness of the Christian family and the unbounding love of Christ to shower sinful men with such earthly joys. Doug gives readers a very personal look at the challenges, losses, and victories of life with his own family of ten. Discover the blessing of family eccentricities and the gentle art of home school opera. Meet a courageous woman whose decision to choose life paved the way for generations of grateful children. Learn how wise fathers build manly libraries that influence children for generations. Meet an ensemble of animals from Penumbra the Goat to Goose Quixote and Buddy the Hamster, and laugh with Doug as he shares theories on how God uses our children s relationships with pets to teach us important life lessons. And before you leave the Phillips family, take time to remember the ''most important things'' as you meet the little boy who waits faithfully for his father at the end of the road.
