According to Your Word exists to produce and distribute quality Lutheran educational and devotional resources for Christian families and churches for the teaching and training of all of God’s children. According to Your Word is an association of confessional Lutherans who are interested in helping others know their Savior, Jesus Christ, more thoroughly as well as teach others about Him and help them to grow in their knowledge and love. We consider that the best way to do this is the same way that Christians have been doing it for 2,000 years, through catechesis: through teaching and training.

According to Your Word produces catechetical resources, including coloring and drawing books for young children. The Hausvater Project is delighted to assist According to Your Word in advertising those coloring books here.
