“Mom! I can’t find my Bible!” I hear this every Sunday. In fact, if I don’t hear it, I get a little worried because it means he’s left it in one place all week, not opening it at all. So, today when I heard my son cry out, it was music to my ears. At least he WANTS to have his Bible for Church and uses it throughout the week and, for that, I’m truly blessed.
My 3-yr-old has been asking me for his own Bible. Knowing he’s not quite ready yet, I’ve got a few other solutions that might suffice. I want him to learn about God daily and I pray he can grow into his Faith and truly trust Him for everything. I’ve discovered two books that will help my children develop their Faith and help me, as a Parent, teach them Scripture, called God’s Promises for Girls and God’s Promises for Boys.
An easy way to help young boys and girls to see God’s promises and how they can rely on His love in their daily lives.
The promise verses in this book are selected from the bestselling International Children’s Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a boy or girl is feeling afraid, lonely, worried, angry, dissatisfied, discouraged, sad, rebellious, impatient, or sick . . . and when they need reassurance of God’s protection, love, forgiveness, help . . . and that He listens when they pray. It’s a great way for children to hide God’s Word in their hearts.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the truth when you feel like you have something to hide. But remember-when it’s hard to be honest: God promises to reward Truth-not Lies!
“You must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days. You must not say evil things. You must not tell lies.” Psalms 34:12-13
Momma Findings Family Thoughts:
As I mentioned above, I seek ways to teach Scripture to even my youngest child. So, when I was asked to review these two books, I knew we could put them to good use. So, what did we like?
- Cute Illustrations: Each promise is discussed and illustrated accordingly with a picture that reflects the scriptures. For instance, when it discusses how we should wear God’s Armor, it shows a picture of a little boy dressed as a Knight.
- Easy to Understand: My 6-yr-old daughter has mastered reading so she reads this book during her quiet time. I like that it’s easy to understand listing different situations and God’s promise to us. I presents an emotion or action, then follows up with a Scripture verse.
- Size: It’s a small book, perfect for little hands to hold.
- Ending: The whole point of the book is to help a child understand how you can turn to God in any situation, good or bad. It also helps memorize scripture, but in the end? It’s all about bringing your child to salvation, simply accepting and believing.
These two books will definitely hold a place on our bookshelf in arms reach for my children. It’s a great Biblical tool to help build a faithful foundation in your family or a gift for that special child in your life.
You can purchase both children’s books in the God’s Promises series at www.Amazon.com for the suggested retail price of $12.99.
