I can choose by Ann Elizabeth Higgins

This is a wonderful way to persuade your kids that Mommy or Daddy knows best. In this book a child is shown 2 choices: to do what his parents said or not too. When the child chooses not to do something there are consequences(example: not wearing a raincoat and they get wet); when the child chooses to do what his parents say the result is good(example: wearing the raincoat and staying dry). Several situations are given in this book but most of them are typical things that parents remind their kids of on a daily basis.
The text is simple and the explanation is clear to the child. The illustrations are simple yet complimentary of the topic.
This book would be good for ages 2-6 or for kids with special needs.

Me? Obey Him? by Elizabeth Rice Handford

This 95 page book is great for those who are getting ready to be married or who are already married and struggling with submission to their husband.

At first I felt a little intimated at the thought of reading a book I knew would speak to my heart. Because I love my husband and because I love my Lord I decided to give this book a try.

This book includes the following chapters:
 1-Why did God command a wife to obey her husband?
 2-What do the scriptures say about a wife's disobedience?
3- Does God really mean what he says?
4- Are there any Bible examples?
5- Don't I have any rights?
                                                                               6- But what about the problems?
                                                                               7-How to enter in: unconditional surrender
                                                                               8-The far reaching consequences

The author uses lots of Bible references to support the lessons in the book, along with Bible and personal examples about submission. In my opinion this book is a must for those engaged to be married and would be a great resource for premaital counseling.
