Christian Alphabet by Tracy Sands

In 1999, the Lord inspired me at a church choir event. As I sat in the back pew, listening to the awesome Christian music, an incredible urge to draw came over me. Being an art teacher, I had experienced this feeling, but never with such intensity. I had a pen in my pocket, but the only paper available was the program I received at the door. In the empty space of that program, I sketched like crazy. I felt as though I would pop if I didn’t get the ideas out of my brain immediately.
I will never forget that experience. I felt peaceful yet energized. God was just getting started with me. Over the next nine months, God and I created this alphabet.

Tracy beautifully takes each letter of the alphabet and creates a scene to reflect God. No just a simple symbol, but detailed and thought provoking. The illustrations are designed to actually look like the letter of the alphabet they are depicting. A for always, is a girl praying in the shape of the letter A. Much more than just bubble letters with a cutesie picture included, these are well defined, and beautiful renditions!
With each letter, a 2 page layout is written. This format is easy to use as a jumpstart for a preschool sunday school class or even homeschool.
The letter and symbol are stated and defined. She includes exercises to use to promote the letter and word association. Verses from scripture with that word are shared, Jesus words included in red. A prayer is included to read aloud together. The 2nd page of the layout is the full illustration with a seek and find, looking for hidden objects within the picture. These are so detailed that you can find additional symbols within.
Tracy has created an absolutely beautiful, memorable ABC book of Christian symbols.

Tracy Sands is from Peachtree City, Georgia, where she lives with her husband, Albert, and their three sons, Chase, Gabe, and Adam. Tracy taught art and “church school” to all ages for many years. She now spends her time caring for her active family and working on The Christian Alphabet™.
