It Will Be Okay
Today I have a children's book to share with you. It is called It Will Be Okay-- Trusting God through fear and change by Lysa TerKeurst. About the book:
In the end, it will be okay because God is always with us.
Whether we like it or not, growing up brings change. For many children, this conjures fears that are sometimes real and sometimes imagined. How can kids learn that even when they face new and unfamiliar situations, they don't have to be afraid?
Little Seed and Little Fox are facing changes and brand new circumstances-and they don't like it one bit! Through this unlikely friendship, children will discover that no matter how new or fearful their circumstances, God is always with them. The whimsical art by Natalia Moore will put a smile on kids' faces and put their minds at ease. Just as Little Seed and Little Fox learn to trust that the Farmer is good and kind, children will also learn to trust God.
Written by New York Times bestselling author Lysa TerKeurst, It Will Be Okay will help kids discover that the end, it really will be okay because we have a God who is good and kind and always with us.
About the Author:Lysa TerKeurstis theNew York Timesbestselling author ofMade to CraveandUnglued. She isn't shy about admitting what a mess she can be. But she's been learning God's lessons and sharing them on her blog (www.LysaTerKeurst.com) and in her books. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and writes from her sticky farm table in North Carolina where she lives with her husband, Art, five kids, three dogs, and mouse that refuses to leave her kitchen.
I thought this was a cute book with a great message that is relevant for children today. Children face many fears, changes, and challenges as they grow up. These changes can be scary. In this book the child will see how they don't have to be afraid as they follow along the story of Little Seed, Little Fox and the Farmer.
The illustrations are enjoyable as well and add to the beauty of the story. Also, I liked that at the beginning is a list of verses to memorize about trusting and not being afraid. This is a good book to read to your child.
If you have a young child in your life, this book would be a nice one to add to their library.
