The glops discovered the truths of Jacob with his family, Jacob with his special sheep, and Jacob with his God. Read The Story of Glops series to learn what the glops experienced.

A new opportunity for children to use their imaginations, while vicariously reliving the biblical story of Jacob! The writing style, photographs, and the glops’ own observations give children an opportunity to imagine how life and family life were in Biblical times. Perhaps life is not so different now, as families still have problems, jealousies exist among siblings, and deceitful behavior is all around us. However, chief messages throughout the book are that God provides for us throughout our trials in life, and that all of us can hold onto God’s promises.
