God Is Always Good Review


The other week I had one of the worst nights of sleep I have had in a while.  I was up eight times with the kids.  Eight separate times!  In one night.  Needless to say, we were all exhausted the next morning.

The main reason the older two kept waking up was because it was a stormy night, and because I suspect there may be squirrels in our attic.  If it wasn't the thunder waking Gwen up (she hates thunderstorms), it was Wyatt wondering if the noises he was hearing were Ralphie ( I skirted the question because I didn't think telling him there were squirrels in the attic would be helpful).

I hadn't yet received God Is Always Good in the mail at that point, but when I did read through it with the kids later, it made me think of that night.  I especially think the section on sometimes being scared would have been great for reminding the kids that God is always with them!  I did remind them of that at the time as well, but it's always nice when you can read a book together and reinforce something that you are trying to teach your kids.

I think this book is perfect for explaining to kids why they don't have to be afraid or worried - because God is always with them, and He is always good.

This book also tackles tougher subjects, like bullying, death, and why bad things happen, in ways that are understandable and comforting for young kids.  The illustrations are so cute and colorful, and I also loved that each page contains a Bible verse!  I'm adding several of the verses mentioned to my list of verses to help Wyatt memorize.

If you are looking for a book to help your child when they are scared or anxious, I'd definitely recommend this book.  Each page is such a good reminder that God is good, His plans are good, and He is always there to help us.

Note: I received this book for free from Tommy Nelson in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
