Book Review: God's Promises for Boys
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
God's Promises for Boys By Jack Countryman & Amy Parker is a wonderful book for young boys and is packed with scripture from front to back. My son is too young to really understand these words on his own, but it is never too soon to start reading these scriptures and planting the seeds of the Word. The illustrations are adorable and the quotes at the beginning of each scripture are fitting and understandable for young ones. With kid-friendly topics like, "God's Promises When...You Want to Be Cool", "God's Promises About...The Man You'll Grow Up to Be", and "God Wants You To...Influence Your World", this book will be a go-to for topical scripture searches for our son. Love it!
