Is God here for me?

That is a question all kids ask!

A friend who doesn’t keep a promise. A scary storm. A soldier who goes off to war. Saying goodbye to a pet—or a loved one. Every day, children come in contact with scary or sad situations where they can feel helpless and alone. Filled with scriptures, soft illustrations, and sweet, reassuring text, this book will broadly address scary situations and remind children that God is always in control and that He will bring good out of bad things.

This book is aimed at kids ages 4-8, who frequently have lots of fears, and whose parents are always on the look out for way to encourage them to feel safe in God's love. The adorable illustrations and accompanying bible verse, bring to life everyday situations, where God's word can be of comfort. The 

charming verses also allow for parent discussion of similar incidents and occurrences.

This is a lovely book to help explain, when things seem to go wrong, or something, or someone, dear is lost, how it is all in God's hands and there is a plan, we do not see.  It is a book that is great to have on hand, for when your children need the reassurance of God's love! We highly recommend it!
