We hope you’ve been on this journey with us as we are learning together. Maybe you’re thinking… how do I start shaping my family to reflect God’s heart for justice? Diversifying your children’s library is a place to start (many of these would make great baby shower gifts)!
Don’t forget to check your local library for these titles as well!
