My daughter's favorite is "My Christmas Gift," which is a colorful rhyming board book that explores why we give each other presents. Bowman explains the Christmas story, and why God loved us so much, that he gave us his son Jesus, and the true gift of Christmas is that if we believe in and love him, we'll receive eternal life.
"It's fun to find presents under the tree and give Christmas gifts to your family. But the very best gift comes from above - It's Jesus the Savior, wrapped in God's love."
My daughter really enjoys her simplistic but beautiful books and the illustrations by Claudine Gevry are captivating and inviting. It was a pleasure to review them and I hope you and your family enjoy them as much as we do.

I love the innocence of little one's when they ask about God and angels. This is exemplified through a little book that I was sent to review from Tyndale called, Are Angels Real? This "Little Blessings" book written by Kathleen Bostrom covers everything that kids want to know about angels. From the best-selling line, Little Blessings, this is perfect for young children who are curious.
The rhymes are easy but fun to read and the illustrations from Care Bears artist Elena Kucharik are cute as a button. I would recommend this darling book for any pre-school aged child.

All children can have nightmares. It's not always after they see or hear something scary. Actually, children and especially babies, process new information they have gathered during the day at night while they are sleeping.
I taught my little one that she does not have to have bad dreams. Jesus gave us authority over bad dreams. I taught her to say this scripture. She is just four and has memorized it. Your child might not know what all of the words mean but you can explain the meaning of it. Basically, that all of your thoughts must line up with God.
2 Corinthians 10:5
"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ..."

Welcome to "A King's Kid,"a blog that is dedicated to practically applying God's word in your children' s lives. We are all kids of the King, so let's embrace this noble heritage and walk the road less traveled. The road may not be smooth all of the time but the reward at the end is great and eternal!
If you want to know a good book of the bible to start with, I recommend Proverbs.
Solomon, David's son, wrote in Proverbs about wisdom. True wisdom comes from God. Did you know that it's free and all you have to do is ask for this gift?
Happy is the man that finds wisdom, and the man that
gets understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the
merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more
precious than rubies: and all the things you can desire are not to be compared to her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold on her: and happy is every one that retains her. (Proverbs 3:13-18)
Are you blessing your children or loved ones? Why not bless them today with a precious gift...wisdom!
Let's pray: Thank-you almighty God that Your skillful Godly wisdom shields (loved one's name) and your discretion and understanding watches over and keeps (loved one's name). (Proverbs 2:5-11)
Congratulations on taking this journey. Remember to always pray before you read and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal what is truth to your heart.
