MY REVIEW

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

What a special book! You would think that fish celebrating Easter and miracles might be odd but it shows that everyone is special in God’s eyes.

God’s Easter Miracles is a good book to read to young children because it has a lot of bright colors that will keep their attention. It also teaches the importance of sharing, treating everyone the same, and trying to live as Jesus would.

Now is the perfect time to get this book to read during the Easter season!

I Have Faith

Title: I Have Faith
Author: Davin Whitehurst
Publisher: Childlike Faith Publishing
Pages: 26
Genre:  Children

Are you ready to get your child excited about faith? “I Have Faith” puts your child right in the footsteps of Danny as he begins to learn about faith. Danny and his older brother have been wanting a dog, but both know their parents don’t think they are ready for a dog. When Danny’s mom begins teaching him what the bible says about faith, he puts his faith into action. After praying and releasing his faith for a dog, doubt and even his best friend keep telling him that he will never get a dog. Over time Danny never loses his faith in the promises of God and finds that God is faithful and that faith works. Come along on this journey that is a real life event that took place in the author’s life as a child.

This book has great illustrations that support a wonderful story about finding faith in God. As you are teaching your child about principals in the bible; this book will help you teach faith. What a wonderful experience it is when we can see our children begin to develop their faith in God, and grow from a tiny mustard seed to a firmly planted tree. The back of the book has a parent/child discussion which will help children gain understanding in faith and some scriptures that Danny’s mom used to get him excited about faith.

My Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I Have Faith is a nicely illustrated book with text that is easy for young children to read. It teaches them about having faith in the Lord and that He hears and answers our prayers. It’s a great book for teaching children about faith but it doesn’t explain that even though God hears our prayers, sometimes His answer is no. I think it would be important for parents to address the fact that faith is important but even with faith, you may not get a puppy (or whatever your heart desires at the moment).

At the end of the book are questions for discussion between the child and parents, scriptures relating to faith, and a parent guide for help in answering the discussion questions. All of these are great additions to the book.

I Have Faith is a good book to start teaching children about faith.

 

Book Excerpt

“Hi! My name is Danny.” This is how I learned to trust God and believe His word.

It’s called faith, and you have faith too.

He is releasing his first book “I have Faith” in May of 2016 but has so many more that are in the making. The motivation behind the books are deeply rooted from in his own past. He is a living testimony of Proverbs 22:6.

Fast forward into his late twenties and God brought him back with a powerful calling. He and his family have been faithfully serving at Seed of Abraham Christian Center International for over seven years now. Proof that when we teach our children the way they should go. When they get older, they know where to turn and will not depart from God. Davin wants each book written to be a resource that parents have to help train their children in the way they should go. He writes stories in a simple way that will be fun and practical for every child. He wants children to get excited about faith and the things of God.

Book Review: Girls Who Choose God by McArthur Krishna & Bethany Spalding

securedownloadTITLE: Girls Who Choose God

AUTHOR: McArthur Krishna & Bethany Spalding

Page Count: 48 *Hardcover 10 X 10

Publication Date: August 18, 2014

Book Description

From Eve to Esther, from the Samaritan woman at the well to the widow with her two mites, many women in the Bible have made courageous choices. All through the ages, women have chosen to help, to solve problems, to stand up for others, to strengthen families, and to follow God no matter what. Girls Who Choose God invites young readers (and those who love them) to make important choices of their own, following the examples of great women in the scriptures. With breathtaking illustrations, beautifully told stories, and insightful discussion questions, this delightful book is perfect for sharing, reading aloud, and drawing children into the scriptures.

Review

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review,

Girls Who Choose God is full of stories of women from the Bible from the Creation to the Resurrection. Each of these women made a difficult choice and the authors ask which would you do?

At the end of each story is the scripture that that story was based on. There are also beautiful and colorful pictures to go along with each story.

This is a great way for children to learn about some of the women of the Bible. It is written for children, encourages them to think about making choices, and has the pictures that will help keep the interest of younger children.
