Resources for Selected Aspects of Domestic Piety

Here are some practical resources connected to the study. There are, of course, several books on the general subjects of the family and family religion. One general resource is the booklet Covenant Home Training Guide by Bruce C. Stewart, published by Crown & Covenant Publications. (This is part of the package of materials our congregation gives to each new member household.) It includes suggested books for children and for parents as well as a schedule for memorization. Along this line, the Memory Work Notebook by Paul Settle has a memory program of scripture and catechisms. It is published by Great Commission Publications.
