The single most important job that I have as a parent is to point my children to Jesus. It’s a great responsibility and one that I think about daily. How can I, a person full of my own sins, effectively show them that Jesus is a wonderful Savior for all of us? How can I ensure that I accurately relay His wonderful message? How can I teach them that despite our flaws, despite our failures, despite our trials, He is always and forever there to hold us?
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed at this task. I know the Holy Spirit will guide me and that He will also work in the heart of my child, but in my own inadequacy, I sometimes need a helping hand. That where books like the Jesus and Me Bible Storybook by Stephen Elkins come in to give me a great starting point.
This 144 page hardcover gem for children ages 2-7 is a sweet devotional full of stories from the life of Jesus. Starting from Moses, the book takes a journey through the Bible, showing how the coming of the Savior was prophesied long before He was born and ending with His resurrection and ascension. With gorgeous and vibrant illustrations from Claudine Gevry, each day’s reading shares relevant Scripture verses, a brief story, a prayer, and a “Jesus and Me” snapshot that will relate the message to your child’s own life.
Designed for children in the younger years, the storybook uses simple, easy to understand language. It breaks down the main lesson from the reading in a way that helps little children understand big truths.
Begin your child’s relationship with the Lord with this delightful little guide. Show them that they can have a deep and meaningful relationship with Jesus, no matter how small or young they are right now.
