"The Adam Family, Part IV, Raising Cain and Other Kids"
Genesis 41: 1,2
We've been talking about the Adam Family in recent days. Three weeks
ago we spoke of the purpose that God has for all of us and the
partner that God gave Adam in the home and it is to be a place of
encouragement and she is to be a helpmeet. We talked the next week

help of the Lord I have brought forth a man." And later she gave
birth to his brother, Able. When the children came, just think,
