“Home Church” Encouraged in 1993

515Q9YXJX5L._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_The concept of a home-centered church is really nothing new. In his 1993 book Raising Up a Family To the Lord, Elder Gene R. Cook establishes such a mindset in the first several pages, as a foundation for the rest of the book. This excerpt shows how he conceived of the concept, and it’s very much what’s being endorsed today.

I’ve always been impressed that this amazing book came out two years before the Proclamation on the Family. My wife and I are going to re-read it in preparation for 2019. To anyone looking for ideas and encouragement for making home the core of your family’s church life, I strongly recommend it!

  1. One of my favorite books! I felt convicted by the quote from Elder Tuttle and it changed my heart forever. I’d love to know how all of Elder Cook’s children turned out and how they’re raising their children.
