Book Review: God's Promises for Boys

God's Promises for Boys
God's Promises for Boys

128 pgs, English


An easy way to help young boys see God's promises and how they can rely on His love in their daily lives.
The promise verses in this book are selected from the bestselling International Children's Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a boy 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:  Sometimes it's hard to tell the truth when you feel like you have something to hide. But remember-when it's hard to be honest: God promises to reward Truth-not Lies!
"You must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days. You must not say evil things. You must not tell lies." Psalms 34:12-13

This book came at just the right time! Our 3 year old is learning to lie and is getting really defiant. We've tried teaching him Scripture to combat this behavior, but it's just not working. I like that this book is arranged into sections which are well organized and thought out. The lessons are short and just the right amount for a short attention span. We've been reading one a night for the past several days and he seems to be understanding what we're reading. I think it's going to take a lot longer to combat our issues, but we're starting. The book is so cute too! The illustrations are really cute and I think the rhymes for the lessons will be easy to remember.

I was provided with a copy of this book from Book Sneeze. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review. Go HERE to join the program!
