In a society where time is such a precious commodity, it is not surprising that family members find less and less time to spend with each other throughout the day. How can families come together to share life stories and pass on a legacy of faith? Wouldn’t it be nice that there is reading material that focuses on equipping parents to create such spiritual moments at home?
TBL recognizes the needs for reading material that can fit into people’s busy schedules. In 2018, we entered into partnership with HomeFront Magazine, a monthly spiritual parenting resource magazine, to narrate their articles. Each month, the magazine presents informative and educational articles for parents (and grandparents). It also features recipes, interactive craft ideas and more for everyone in the family. Imagine the difference it will make for your family if you can spend time on a home craft project together or can be engaged in faith conversations over dinner time?
It is also more cost-efficient for us to produce these magazines because of their shorter length. That means we can produce more issues in the same time that it takes us to produce a book. We hope that our readers can access materials beyond books, so they can be better nourished from a variety of audio publications.
The December 2018 issue is already completed and is available at https://www.talkingbooklibrary.org/. As this issue was around Christmastime, it focuses on ways to keep Jesus at the centre of the Christmas season with Christmas-themed craft ideas and Bible verses.
