A short, warm video accessed at www.thefamilyvision.org quickly provides an overview of the wonderful, free benefits of The Family Vision Library, the only one of its kind (to our knowledge) in the United States of America.
Located on the western edge of the St. Louis area, those families who participate give it “rave” review! It is consistent … and a wonderful resource … for families who want to enrich their children … and not have any concerns regarding the “safety & quality” of what goes into the minds of their children.
President John thrower of the Library is for real … a fine, Godly man! He could be doing a lot of other things, but he chooses for his life to honor Jesus by serving as a significant part of enriching and growing Christian families … and for providing an atmosphere that points all participants to grow in their faith.
From www.thefamilyvision.org: “Our library is housed in our 12,000-square-foot facility in St. Peters, Missouri, [west part of the St. Louis region, just west of the landmark Baue Funeral Home on the north side of I-70]. It features plenty of comfortable space for reading, study, and visiting. It’s free to get a card in our library. And there is no residence restriction, so if we’re within driving distance for you, we’re your library!”
The Psalmist in the Word of God notes that … “Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel [advice] of the wicked … (Psalm 1:1). Bad, ungodly advice is to be avoided at all cost.
The Family Vision provides such an atmosphere to advance this wisdom.
For people around the country, materials from the library can be ordered and checked out on line, and shipped nearly anywhere. (Visit http://www.thefamilyvision.org/christian-books-library/library-online/
