Struggling to find age-appropriate Christian content for your kids? The Towers of Light series is an engaging and educational book series that brings biblical truths to life.
Allen Brokken is a teacher at heart, a husband, and a father most of all. He began writing the Towers of Light series for his own children to help illustrate the deep truths of the Bible in an engaging and age-appropriate way. He’s dedicated 18 years to volunteer roles in children’s ministry and youth development. Now that his children are off to college, he’s sharing stories and clean humor on social media and his blog.
During this episode, Allen shares his personal journey as a father and why he decided to write the Towers of Light series. With his own experiences of struggling to find meaningful ways to connect with his children amidst a demanding job, Allen found solace in storytelling and used it as a powerful tool to bridge the gap. Allen has created a unique avenue through his stories for parents to introduce complex theological concepts to their children effortlessly. Unlike other Christian children’s series, Allen’s books integrate realistic conversations about faith and an unwavering commitment to the truth found in the Bible. This approach eliminates the common pitfall of appearing preachy and allows children to actively participate in unraveling the mystery of their faith.
Allen also offers additional resources to support Christian families. Recognizing the struggles faced by children with reading difficulties or dyslexia, he developed the Pathway audio player. This device, which contains locked-down content, offers a screen-free and distraction-free platform for children to listen to audiobooks and even explore the depths of God’s word through audio Bibles. Allen’s mission is to make discipleship accessible and engaging for all children, regardless of their reading abilities.
Allen’s Towers of Light series and innovative resources can help you draw your children closer to Christ!
