Book Description

How do you captivate the heart of a boy?

With words from a loving God about the courageous man of honor he will one day be. He dreams of imaginary castles, knights, and daring adventures–but he is already the child of a real King, and a part of a real kingdom! In a beautifully illustrated, two-way conversation between that King and his warrior-child, His Mighty Warrior offers the truth about what it really means to grow up strong, brave and true.

From best selling author Sheri Rose Shepherd, here is a thoughtful gift for reading to–or with–that special boy in your life.


From the Hardcover edition.

CHOSEN BY THE KING

My Son,
I have chosen you to do something great for my kingdom. You are not just a boy—you are a child of the King, and I am your Father in heaven. I want you to know that I am the same God who chose King David when he was just a little boy, and I have chosen you to show the world who I am. I will give you all you will ever need to conquer and accomplish the mission I have for you. Never forget who you are or who I am, and you will become a strong and mighty warrior for me.

Love,
Your King and Father in heaven

For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. DEUTERONOMY 7:6

Dear God,
Help me to remember that you chose me and I am yours. Please use each day of my life to prepare me to be great in your kingdom. Thank you for picking me out to be a warrior for you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.




A PLAN AND A PURPOSE

My Mighty Warrior,
I have a powerful plan for you, my son. I know you are just a young boy, but so was King David when I chose him to become the future king. Little did he know while he was faithfully protecting and caring for sheep that I was preparing him to protect and care for my people one day. Right now I have placed people in your life and given you special jobs to prepare you for your purpose in life. Be faithful in the little things and I will make you great in my kingdom.

Love,
Your King, who has a plan for you

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
JEREMIAH 29:11


Dear God,
Help me to work hard and be faithful at all the things you give me to do. Give me a heart that wants to do the
things you planned out for me long ago. I know I’m still young, but I am mighty because of you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treasure October 19, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Today's boys are fascinated by pirates. Best-selling author Sheri Rose Shepherd uses this to great advantage in His Mighty Warrior, a new sort of devotional, filled with 128 pages of "letters from God."

Boys will first be enticed by the 18th century-style map at the front and back of this book, and the imagination-inspiring illustrations of sailors on islands and tall ships by Lisa Marie Browning. Then they'll discover down-to-earth, kid-friendly "letters from God" on each two-page spread, accompanied by a related Bible verse and a simple prayer. For example, here's the first letter in the book:

"My Son,
I have chosen you to do something great for my kingdom. You are not just a boy - you are a child of the King and I am your Father in heaven. I want you to know that I am the same God who chose King David when he was just a little boy, and I have chosen you to show the world who I am. I will give you all you will ever need to conquer and accomplish the mission I have for you. Never forget who you are or who I am, and you will become a strong and mighty warrior for me.
Love,
Your King and Father in heaven"
Deut. 7:6 is then quoted, and a four sentence prayer follows.

Topics in this book include God's purpose for our lives, the importance of prayer, developing character, the power of promises, courage, being tender, the power of words, respecting rules, being your best, fighting the good fight, honoring others, dealing nobly with money, dealing with disappointment and anger, telling the truth, being a server, bragging and boasting, dealing with fear, failure, loving your enemies, giving revenge to the Lord, obeying parents, "when bad things happen," "death is not the end," and much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheri Rose Shepherd "His Mighty Warrior" Is Awesome February 23, 2008
Format:Hardcover
My son, who I struggle with to get him to read, couldn't put the book down. He kept saying "Mom, I'm on page 9!" "Now I'm on page 30"
His eyes were full and he kept smiling. He knew it was God speaking to him telling him what his purpose in life is. That God needs and depends on him. Most importantly, that my son is not in it alone. That God is with him every step of the way.
My son feels so loved from reading that book.
Kids need to feel important by their parents but when they know God thinks their princes and princesses. Wow! Nothing can top that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful way to connect and talk about God's Word February 26, 2008
Format:Hardcover
I bought this for my 9 year old son (and it's princess counterpart for my 4 year old daughter). I have found it to be a wonderful part to add to our bedtime routine that doesn't take long but imparts profound wisdom. The letters to the boys "from God" really speak to their identities as young men and gives a parent the opportunity to put to words the different personality traits we hope our children grow up with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for your son.... May 29, 2008
Format:Hardcover
My 7yr old son and I made this book our Daily Devotional before school each day this year. With about 7 more days to go....on May 14, 2008 my son asked Jesus to come into his heart and decided to accept Him as his Savior.

This book blessed our family in a big way. We've now started from the beginning all over again....and now my son garners even more from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Bedtime Devotional for Little Boys December 10, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am familiar with Sheri Shepherd's "Princess" books for little girls, and "His Mighty Warrior" is equally as wonderful for little boys. This is a great bedtime devotional for little guys from birth through elementary school. Each excerpt is about 1 page long with a short prayer to encourage and help boys to grow up to be Godly men. Illustrations are awesome! HIGHEST RECOMMEDATIONS!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing character tool April 9, 2010
By M. Game
Format:Hardcover
My son is ten, believes in the Lord, but has not asked Him into his heart yet. Despite this, this tool is teaching him character in a loving language. It is allowing us to use scripture and prayer to grow him up and provide us opportunities to talk about these things. I could not encourage a parent of a son enough to get this book/tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect! November 9, 2011
Format:Hardcover
Before I even opened this book I was pleased. The front cover is slightly puffy. I know that's silly to note, but it just gives an extra something special to the book. The cover art is of a boy on an adventure...what young boy wouldn't be intrigued by that! The first thing I noticed upon opening the book is that the beautiful artwork from the cover continues inside. Each page is really a picture in itself with the words set on top.

This book is not a story, but more of a devotional for boys. Each page that you open to features a (fictional) letter from God to your boy, a Bible verse, and a prayer for your boy to pray in response to the letter and verse. It reads like the final words of instruction and encouragement a father would give to a son who is going off on a journey. Each letter encourages or instructs your boy in a way that he should act (be courageous, be a protector, obey the rules, etc.) and is doctrinally strong on points like God's sovereignty and our utter dependence on Him. The content is not dumbed-down, but is still appealing to young, imaginative minds. Here is an example from one of the `letters'...

"You will be surrounded by boys and girls who do not want to follow the rules. I do not want you to be like them. I want you to be a leader, not a follower. A true leader will be strong and do the right thing."

The prayers are fantastic responses to the letters. Each one is honest, often with a confession of wrong behavior and a plea to God for help in doing the right thing. Here is an example of one of the prayers...

"Dear God, I want an awesome attitude. Please help me have a grateful heart no matter what happens. I want to be a hero for you and help others do the same by my example.
