The promise verses in this book are selected from the best-selling International Children's Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a girl 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: Monsters. Spiders. Being alone. Do any of these things make you feel afraid? When you start to feel fear, hold on tight to these words: God promises to take your fear away!
"So don't worry, because I am with you. Don't be afraid, because I am your God. I will make you strong and will help you. I will support you with my right hand that saves you." Isaiah 41:10
I loved this book. As a kindergarten teacher, I feel that it's right on traget for the 5 -12 year old range. I passed my copy to a former student and she loves it!! If you are looking for a great devotional book for a young girl, run to your local bookstore and buy one today!!
I received this book from Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program, and don't worry, they didn't make me write a good review in exchange for the free book!
Did you know you're God's princess?
Yes a daughter of the King!
So live a life of royalty,
And show the joy God's love can bring!
Trust in the LORD and do good;
Live in the land and enjoy it's safety.
Enjoy serving the LORD,
And he will give you the desires of your heart.
Trust Him and he will take care of you.
Then your goodness will shine like the sun.
Your fairness will shine like the noonday sun.
Psalm 37: 3-6
You are the children of the LORD your God...
He has chosen you from all the people on the earth to be his very own.
Deuteronomy 14: 1-2
It is not fancy hair, gold jewelry, or fine clothes that should make you beautiful. No your beauty should come from within you-- the beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit.Read more ›
What's not to like?! The very first section is "God's Promises When You Live Like His Princess" - so you know this is going to be a hit in our house...
This makes both a lovely devotional-type book and a handy reference when you are looking for verses on a specific topic, such as dancing, praying, fear, sickness, and sharing your faith.
Each section has a cute lil' girl-pleasing illustration (very important here), a four-line introductory/summary rhyme, and a selection of verses on the topic.
I think this book would be appropriate for a large age-range: maybe 2 to 12 - making it a good investment.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book as an introduction to the treasures of Scripture for the little girl in your life.
What Mom Didn't Like:
It's not pink? I suppose that would be a positive for many of you... :) It is most definitely feminine, so we're okay even on that line...
We've been so blessed by God's Promises for Girls, by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker. A perfect book that grows with your daughter or little girlie in your life. The book is divided into sections like "God Wants You To..." and "God's Promises about Making a Difference..." that each have little poems and Bible verses included. Here are some of my favorites:
God's Promises About... Serving Others
"Share a doll, show the new girl around,
Bake brownies and take them next door;
Serving and helping others in love
Is what God created you for!"
God's Promises When... You Are Happy
"Hooray! It's a wonderful day!
Picking daisies is oh, so fun...
There is always a reason to be happy,
When you're living for Jesus the Son!"
What a wonderful little book of treasures! What about the lovely boys in your life? Don't worry, the authors put together God's Promises for Boys too!! There's also a whole bunch of God's Promises books... I received a God's Promises for Graduates when I graduated, and it still offers me encouragement many years after the diploma!
Pick up a copy today! You won't be disappointed, and you might even find treasures for yourself!
"We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him."
