Children · Gifts · the Word

enter the Kingdom… as little children…


I found out about this treasure from my sister-in-law… who has many grandchildren… now I have none… and my youngest is nineteen…

But I felt compelled to order… it came… and I’ve been enchanted by this storybook Bible… subtitled…

Every story whispers his name…


And it does… over and over… the author points the way to Him… His love… and His great plan for the rescue…

Truth… woven into an overview… of the Bible… simple enough… for children…

The introduction to the Nativity story… caught my attention… as it echoed recent thoughts

Everything was ready. The moment God had been waiting for was here at last! God was coming to help his people, just as he promised in the beginning.

But how would he come? What would he be like? What would he do?

Mountains would have bowed down. Seas would have roared. Trees would have clapped their hands. But the earth held its breath. As silent as snow falling, he came in. And when no one was looking, in the darkness, he came.

—Sally Lloyd-Jones, the Jesus Storybook Bible

If you have children to gift… this would be a great one…

Even if you don’t… gift it to yourself…

Come to Him… like a little child…

 But Jesus called the children to him and said,
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom
of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:16-17 NIV
