An easy way to help young boys 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 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.
Sample text: 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
I again confess, this is not a book to judge by the cover. Most of the time I glance through books like these, read through them and put them back on the shelf. However, when I recieved this book, I was looking for something for my godson. When I opened it and not-to-my-surprise it was filled topics for different areas of all stages of a Christians life. While the illustrations and simple language was geared more towards boys, I found myself gleaning as well. “A child shall lead them…” and all that you know. 😉
I also love the smell of new books. I am still sitting here sniffing the book. Dont roll your eyes, I’m already doing taht myself. 😉
This book would also be a GREAT teaching tool in those times when all we need is a little reminder. Something to send our kids to think about. Since my own children are learning verses, I can totally see them picking this book up and trying to memorize it. Heck, I can see myself doing it.
Is it one I would normally go to the store and buy? No. Am I sorry I have it? No. I will actually be buying one for my godson and keeping this copy. 🙂
Thank you BookSneeze for providing me with this copy.
