Being Thankful!

Thank You, God, For  Blessing Me!
by Max Lucado 

A very colorful board book with delightful illustrations that reminds us that God has blessed us in so many ways!  It further shows us our responsibility to live a life that pleases God, so we can show Him our appreciation of His many blessings.

I feel that it is so important to instill thankfulness in children.  So many times in life we forget to stop and thank God for the beautiful world that He prepared for us, family, friends, the daily provisions, and His greatest gift the plan of salvation!

Brighter Days for Katie Ann!

The Wonder of Your Love
by Beth Wiseman

This book has many twists and turns, rather unpredictable.  I haven't read many books by Mrs. Wiseman, I know the story would mean more to you if you had read all of her other books first, but it stands on it's own as a good read.

The main character, Katie Ann, has faced hardships, embarrassment and disappointment, and is due for some better circumstances. 

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, I feel well acquainted with these folks and am interested in following their lives.

God made us special!

Hermie,  A Common Caterpillar
By Max Lucado

We need to realize we are blessed, even though we may not be able to slam dunk a basketball, cook a delicious meal, deliver a powerful sermon, paint a beautiful painting, etc., God has a purpose and plan for each of our lives, and when we find that purpose, and are doing God's will, we can be happy and content knowing that God can work through us.  We need to pray and ask God to use us for His purpose.

This book shows children that we are all special to God. This edition is a level two reader with easy print for children learning to read with colorful illustrations.
