Defenders of the Family, assemble! God’s magnificent plan for us rests upon the strength of the family. In this engaging children’s book, discover the roles and teachings needed to unite your family, from devoted parents to extended members, all centered on the power of the gospel. Help your children see their families as they can be: incredible, empowered, eternal followers of Jesus.

About the author:
Ben began an epic comic book collection as a boy and always cheered for the good guys like Spider-man. He developed his superpower of dancing and met his beautiful wife Keenan at BYU while part of the International Folk Dance Ensemble. They now live in Utah Valley with their five children where he teaches seminary. Ben enjoys dates with his wife, cheering on sports teams with his sons, and having dance parties in the driveway with his girls. He is also the author of the children’s book “I Hope They Call Me on a Mission.” He has also authored two more books: “10 Questions to Answer While Preparing for a Mission” and “10 Questions to Answer After Serving a Mission.”

From Reidhead Randomness:
This is such a cute "comic strip" like book with an important message.  It is easy for small kids to be able to follow the story and get the message of how 'defenders of the family' should act.  This great book follows the many people in a person's life that can help them...grandparents, friends, Jesus, and parents.  It also talks about some great values and important points from "The Proclamation to the Family."  It also talks about some of the things that can make home life better...Work together, love each other, eat together, say your sorry.  I think it is a great book that could be used as a family home evening lesson, or just a great book to enjoy, and remind us of the things we can do to be a happy family!
