Kent, Ohio, April 7, 2021 – A new author and founder of a children’s storybook publishing startup is helping parents disciple their young children by using story and Scripture. Author, Floyd Gary Pierce of Storybook Discipleship recently released his first storybook, “Broken: The Problem of Sin” to give parents of 2- to 8-year-olds a simple nurturing way to share the Gospel with their kids at home.
The storybook features two lovable sisters who discover the reality of being broken by sin when they lie to their mother about breaking a beloved picture frame and blame their sleepy cat. Their mother lovingly points the girls to Romans 3:23 after they admit to lying. She helps them understand that everyone is broken by sin and in need of Jesus. The sisters hear about God’s grace for them in Ephesians 2:8 and the Gospel is summed up for the sisters in Romans 6:23. By the end of the storybook they realize that because of Jesus, the sisters aren’t broken anymore.
“I trust my storybook will help parents feel at ease when sharing the Gospel with their kids.”
“It was so much fun writing this storybook with input from my wife, Emily, and our two daughters, Lily and Ruby. One of my goals in writing this storybook was to give my daughters the opportunity to participate in Kingdom work outside the church walls. They both actively serve as greeters at church. By including them in the process of writing and editing, I am showing them they can serve God in many ways. Ministry is part of life, not just something for Sundays.” Floyd Gary Pierce
