God's Promises for Boys/Girls *giveaway

God's Promises for Boys

Jack Countryman and Amy Parker
Illustrations by Richard Watson
Arranged by topical order, God's Promises for boys, will be a helpful guide for 6-10 year olds to find topical specific verses to read and pray. 
God's promises are vast, and as a young child it helps to pinpoint what some of them are by grouping the verses together in one place. Curious about what God promises when you are afraid? Turn to the page on God Promises When You are Afraid for verses 
2 Timothy 1:7
God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid. He gave us a spirit of power and love and self-control.
Additionally; Romans 8:15-17, 1John 4:8, Psalm 118:6   

This is a fantastic method of finding scripture to tuck in your heart for needs that arise. Young people are sponges for memorizing scripture and this book easily helps them find and read them on their own. The verses are quoted from the International Children's Bible. 

Other topics in the more than 50 promises includes are;
God's Promises When You are Happy
God's Promises about God's Praising God
God Wants you to Stay Strong!
God's Promises of Help When Growing up is Hard
God's Promises about Jesus 
God will help you live for Him  

Each topic starts with a short rhyming poem and ends with a illustration depicting the boy in one of the promises mentioned. 
God's Promises for Girls

Jack Countryman & Amy Parker
Illustrations by Rachel Miller
God's Promises for girls geared toward girls ages 6-10 takes a look at the Promises God holds for his little princessess. 
 Many of the scriptures and promises are the same in the Girls and Boys books, making it easy to sit side by side with your son and daughter and go over the same memory verses with each! There are differences in some of the promises based on boys and girls, but for the most part the sections are very similar. The poem at the beginning and the illustrated work is different. I love that these two versions can be great companions to each other! Even some of the poems are identical
God's Promises for girls has such darling, whimsical illustrations! I love the sweet girl with the rosy cheeks and the beautiful detail that Rachel Miller took in illustrating them! This is an illustrator I would love to see more work from.

What does Promise mean to you? When you ask your children what Promise means, what do they respond?
God's promises never fail and are given in love. Help you young ones stand on the promises of God at a young age and be able to hide the Word in their heart for the future.
