Thom Mollohan is an author, speaker, writer, teacher, pastor (of a wonderful family of Believers in Pathway Community Church!), former campus minister, previous church planter… blah, blah, blah. What he is especially proud of being, however, is a father to four awesome kids and a husband to an amazing woman! What he is most unworthy of being called is that of child and servant of God (Ephesians 3:8). Thom is the author of THE FAIRY TALE PARABLES (Classic Fairy Tales Pointing to God's Love and Truth), CRIMSON HARVEST (a Christian thriller novel on the power of God’s grace to overcome darkness), and A HEART AT HOME WITH GOD (a collection of "kingdom of God lessons" learned in the context of family life.
How do the stories you tell your children - or even tell yourself - glorify God? In what ways do they encourage (or discourage) one's walk with the Lord?
The Fairy Tale Parables
On occasion, as my wife and I share a fairy tale with our four wonderful children, I am struck by the truth hidden within the old stories. Such tales remind me of the “parables” that Jesus used in teaching people how to understand God’s Word, His will, and His ways. It seems to me that the fairy tales with which we have all grown up are so ladened with spiritual significance that the pearls of wisdom and hope within them must be shared for there is a deep hunger for hope in the world today…a solid, eternal hope that can only be found in Jesus Christ.
