{Giveaway} Christmas Love Letters From God

‘Tis the Season for giveaways and I have another one for you.

This one is a book by Glenys Nellist, called Christmas Love Letters From God.

img_20161126_182510-2

Written for children ages four to eight, Christmas Love Letters from God cleverly combines both prose and poetry as the story of Jesus’ birth unfolds. The book includes seven stories, beginning with Isaiah’s prophecy and ending with the visit of the wise men. Following each story, the child will find his or her own letter from God, folded into a small envelope attached to the page. Each letter begins with a space in which to write the child’s name, so each one can be specially addressed to the child.

Written as if God is speaking, each personalized message gives the young reader a sense of wonder as they discover anew the Christmas holiday and the birth of Jesus. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Perfect Promise, also accompanies each story and letter as God’s personal words of love, promise, and hope.

{Giveaway} Under the Sea (Children’s) Bible

When I was in high school, I wanted to be a marine biologist when I grew up.  Can anyone else relate?  I love marine life, especially mammals like dolphins and orca whales.  During our honeymoon, my husband even surprised me with a “swim with the dolphins” experience in Hawaii.  It was amazing!  Visiting aquariums is also one of my favorite activities and I never get tired of them.  I really, really like (LOVE) this one…

I also love reading the bible.  So imagine my excitement when Zondervan came out with the The Under the Sea Holy Bible, in the New International Reader’s Version (NIrV).  

About The Under The Sea Holy Bible – It is a perfect gift for children ages 6 to 10. Themes of underwater fun and sparkling fish grace the interior of this wonderful children’s Bible. The outside is covered in foil and sparkle. The interior has color inserts featuring whimsical underwater scenes with themes of God’s care and love for each of us and all of creation.

The NIrV is a great edition for young children, because it contains words that are easier to read and understand.  Sometimes shorter words and shorter sentences are used as well.  Eye-catching, colorful inserts are scattered throughout this bible, with lessons on prayer, love, the Ten Commandments and other themes.  I also appreciate that the Under the Sea bible is in hardcover. 🙂

Easter Stories Book Review & Giveaway

Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season

By C.S. Lewis, Elizabeth Goudge, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and others

I’m thrilled with this opportunity to introduce this book to you.  After having our two kids, Easter took on a whole other meaning.  It was no longer just about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and heading to church on Easter Sunday, bright and early with hearts full of praise that Jesus Christ had risen!  After our children were born, my thoughts about Easter were consumed with finding the perfect Community Egg Hunt to take my children to or planning one of our own in the backyard, filling baskets with treats, chocolate bunnies and dyeing hard-boiled eggs.  With the busyness of making Easter fun for the kids, taking time to reflect on what the season is really about is important and good for the soul.  Easter Stories is a wonderful collection of 26 short stories that helps me focus on the true meaning of Easter.  I haven’t read the entire book yet, but it’s been good reading a story whenever I can.  Easter Stories will be treasured on my bookshelf for many years.  You will also have the opportunity to win a copy of this book by entering the giveaway below.

About the Book:   Everyone who believes Easter is about more than Easter egg hunts will be grateful for this new anthology of short stories that illumine the true meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Holy Week and Easter in a way that will captivate readers of all ages. Parents and grandparents will find that children love to hear these stories read aloud, year after year.

Easter Stories includes time-honored favorites from world-famous storytellers such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Selma Lagerlof, Oscar Wilde, Elizabeth Goudge, Maxim Gorky, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and Walter Wangerin – as well as many you’ve never heard before. Illustrated with original woodcuts.
