The parenting books that he has written or co written include Focus On The Family's Parent's Guide To The Spiritual Development of Children, which he co wrote with Dr. John Trent and Kurt Bruner. His parenting books have been well received!
Rick's approach has always been to not only teach parents but also to equip them. So he has also produced, written and/or co written many award winning and best selling tools that help parents teach God's Word to their kids. Each of these tools was designed specifically to help parents in a different aspect of their task.
He has written and/or co-written over 46 books and been part of the development of over 100 other church and parenting tools, books and programs, all dedicated to raising children God's way.
Rick has worked with Focus on The Family, Dr. John Trent, Larry Burkett, Josh McDowell, Campus Crusade For Christ and many others.
He, his programs and/or resources have been featured on pretty much every major Christian radio and television show and magazine that deals with parenting.
His Story of Jesus presentation book, The Most Important Story Ever Told, has had over 50 million copies distributed worldwide in 110 different languages.
Rick is currently working on Partnering With Parents, a Children's Church and Parenting program that puts home and church together in a Biblical partnership. He's also now online where he can encourage, help and equip more Christian parents everyday. rick-osborne.com
This book, The Legend of the Christmas Stocking, is amazing. I was just searching through children’s books and it sounded fantastic. For being a small book the story is really deep and inspiring. I love board books because they will last forever and many generations will be able to enjoy them.
In The Legend of the Christmas Stocking you will find out how the Christmas stocking came to be and also the main character, Peter learns the lesson that Christmas is about giving not getting and how he shared with all that he had.
I highly recommend this book to you because it is such an enjoyable read and the pictures are so beautiful. I also love a book that has a message to share and has something to teach us. This will make a lovely addition to your Christmas book collection. I really am glad I got it.
