How many times have you said those four words to a child? "It will be okay." But deep down inside in places we don't talk about near enough, we aren't really sure. Because here's what we know, but oftentimes don't know how to say it, especially to a child:
You know that yucky feeling called fear? It's real. Fear of strangers, fear of the dark, fear of the unexpected, fear of the unknown . . . all legitimate. All normal. All okay.
You know that feeling when the sand seems like it's shifting? When you are comfortable and cozy, and then someone rips the covers right off you? Change. It's real too. Again, very okay.
Because your Creator loves You. He is good even when our circumstances aren't. He is trustworthy even when others aren't. And He is always watching You.
Through the story of a seed, a farmer, and a fox, Lysa TerKeurst weaves a tale designed for young children to understand the difficult concepts of trust, fear, and change. Designed for ages 4-8, both children and parents will enjoy the biblical truths shared in this delightful story. The illustrations are vivid, the characters lovable, and the opportunity for discussion ripe for the picking. She also includes suggested memory verses for parents and children to work on together.

Until next time . . .
