After sharing the Wordless book and Christmas ornaments project yesterday, I thought it would be a fabulous Friday to offer My Friend Jesus The Gospel for Kids Book Review and Giveaway!
Now you know I love giving things away if you’ve been around here any time at all. (Speaking of- be sure not to miss the $1000 FaithWorks Financial giveaway while it’s still open!) And I really love giving away books because, well, I’m a nerd like that.
But this book isn’t just any book- this book is designed for children to understand the Gospel story and just how much Jesus loves them. So much that He came to this earth to live in human flesh. So much that He died on the cross for our sins. So much that He wants to be the friend who will never leave us.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from this precious book:
Jesus remains the most important person who ever lived in the history of our world.
Jesus died to save everyone on earth who would believe in Him.
Yes, more than anything, Jesus wants to be your Savior and friend– the best friend you ever had.
In the note to grown-ups at the beginning of the book, the author, Kathryn Slattery, provides a statement that I believe sums up the reason this book should be so important to adults:
“Today, more than ever, children need to be informed and reassured that God is real, that He personally loves them, and that He has a unique purpose for each of their lives.”
Oh I couldn’t agree more! So now you see why I’m excited to give this book away to you today! To keep it simple, I’m just asking that you leave a comment answering any of the following question:
1. Do you have a particular idea or method you enjoy using to share the Gospel with children?
2. What sentence or section of this review caught your attention in regards to this giveaway?
3. How would you use this book if you won the giveaway copy?
Alright, Friends- thanks for stopping by! If you are a Bible Reading Challenge participant, we’re down to the last month- come on- keep reading! I’d love it if you’d leave a comment regarding the reading!
