He's God the Whole World In His Hands

If you grew up in church, as I did -I was a 4th (living) generation Southern Baptist as a kid- then you probably have some favorite Sunday School songs that still go through your mind from time to time. Hopefully you’re passing them down to the next generation as well. As I play our favorite CDs during the day, for my little guy and I to Dance to, sweep to, etc, and as I sing to him when he needs calming, I’m struck all over again by just how meaningful these songs really are! The Truths I’ve known as fact … Read More

Faith through Allegories

Allegories are very special to me. I’ve been drawn to them from a very early age. They can be fun, or serious, but they always make a point, in a parallel way, without just saying “You messed up. Look what you did/should have done/are capable of!” In that way, they are kind, and make you think. Some of my favorite Biblical Allegories are With that kind of example, reading allegories is one of my favorite types of fiction. I’m always learning something, scripture comes alive in new ways. Understanding Christ’s sacrifice better, or His love, or some other treasure. By … Read More

8+ Go-to Bible Storybooks

First off, I struggle with choosing Bible Storybooks. Sometimes I get it home and find out it’s not theologically sound, or it’s totally watered down. I’ve gotten a few that had me itching to throw them away, and if you know me and books, that’s just not normal! I Love Books. I can rarely stop in the middle of a book, and won’t, unless it hits my 3-strike tolerance for inappropriate content. Poor writing or typos don’t usually phase me. Theological issues, well, that’s the only other thing that can stop me. Especially if it is something I want to … Read More

Step Inside some Biblical Fiction Today

Some Friends and I were out for a Girls Mom’s afternoon recently, when the topic of Biblical Fiction came up. Now if you know me at all, you know I read a lot. My favorite categories are historical and Biblical fiction. I was surprised by how many of my friends were afraid, or at least nervous, about reading Biblical Fiction.

Combine that with the uncertainty of denominational assumptions and other issues, this can be dangerous, if you’re … Read More

(Affiliate links may be used in this post. please see the full disclosure policy here) It is always amazing to me, how God works to multiply His message. Isaiah 55:11 says: “so My word that comes from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.” I always get excited when I see or experience that playing out. He can have someone write books for kids, that moms will read, and have both the mom and her little ones get the lesson in a slightly different way, from the same 8 page board book, or 20 minute cartoon.
