Dr. Dale and Stanislaus State College



Doc had gone to Stanislaus State College, at the time a small college in the California state system.

Thanks for your prayers. And if you haven’t order this book yet, please go to (www.ThePray-ers.com) to do so. You’ll save $8.00!

Our Children’s Book

Cover-with outline-2inWide

Our Children’s book is the first of three planned. They come from a children’s book of verses written in 1887 called Rainbows of Promises.

The verses in the book are written in “children-ese” and so we kept the graphic from 1887 and added a simple prayer on the facing page that corresponds with the verse. Thus, children learn to associate prayer with the Word of God. See below for a sample 2 page spread:


We think these will make great stocking stuffers. Buy them here, and check out the Christmas Sale Priceing.
