Each night before bed, just before prayers, I have been reading a very sweet little book to my son.
This book tucks God's promises in his head before he goes to sleep.
He lays so quietly and listens as I read just a tiny bit each evening. It has come to be my favorite time of the day.
Thomas Nelson Publishing has been blessing our family with books for over a year now. It is a pleasure to be one of the Top Tommy Nelson Mommies.
Our latest resource is God's Promises for Boys.
About the book:
There are 7 short sections to the book:
- God's Promises When...
- God's Promises About...
- God Wants You To...
- God's Promises of Help When...
- God's Promises about Making a Difference
- God's Promises about Jesus
- God's Promises for You
Each section is packed full of Bible verses just for your little boy. The verses are taken from the International Children's Bible.
My son is 8 and it is perfect for him. I imagine a little one as young as 4 could also benefit.
Having this "bite-size" resource for my son is perfect. The passages are short, sweet, and easy to digest at night before he goes to bed.
It stays on his dresser, where I can easily refer to it at the end of our day.
I can choose a section that is perfect for what has been going on in our day. For example, last week one day we were talking a lot about being "mighty" and how little boys should serve their families. At bedtime I opened up God's Promises for Boys and turned to the "God Needs Boys" section.
I read Grant this verse:
Then I said, "But Lord God, I don't know how to speak. I am only a boy." But the Lord said to me, "Don't say, 'I am only a boy.' You must go everywhere that I send you. You must say everything I tell you to say. Don't be afriad of anyone, because I am with you. I will protect you," says the Lord. Then the Lord reached out with his hadn and touched my mouth. He said to me, "See, I am putting my words in your mouth. Today I have put you in charge of nations and kingdoms. You will pull up and tear down, destroy and overthrow. You will build up and plant." ~ Jeremiah 1: 6-10
There is no greater gift than sharing God's promises with your children.
God's Promises for Boys helps me do just that.
