God's Promises for Girls


God's Promises When...

You Need Help

Searching for help? Nowhere to turn?
You've looked both high and low?
There's just one thing to remember:
Prayer is the best place to go.

People, trust God all the time.
Tell him all your problems.
God is our protection.
Psalm 62:8

Trust the Lord with all your heart.
Don't depend on your own understanding.
Remember the Lord in everything you do.
And he will give you success.
Proverbs 3:5-6

So our hope is in the Lord.
He is our help, our shield to protect us.
Psalm 33:20

God is our protection and our strength.
He always helps in times of trouble.
So we will not be afraid if the earth shakes,
or if the mountains fall into the sea.
Psalm 46:1-2

In the book, God's Promises for Girls by Jack Countryman & Amy Parker, this beautifully illustrated book offers Bible verses to provide comfort and encouragement when young girls need reassurance of God's love, protection, and forgiveness. As children see again and again that Scripture has the answers they need, they will learn to rely on God and His promises. The promise verses have been selected from the best-selling International Children's Bible.

In reviewing this complimentary book from Thomas Nelson Publishers, I feel in love with the beautiful artwork that accompanies each topic and the simple scriptures that accompany each much like the example above. There are 60 topics covered for little girls to understand.

The best part of reviewing this book was having my 11 year old daughter read it and having her come back and share what she has learned. It literally brought tears to my eyes when she shared with me what it means to her to be a princess of God. You can't get any more value from a book than this. She keeps it by her bed and read one topic each night before heading to bed and I can already see how much it's blessing her.

I wish I would have had something like this when I was young. I knew about GOD but not really. I found Him in my 40's. This would be a good book for my great-nieces. What age do you think this is for?
