Review: A Very Thankful Prayer

Fall is here!

I love the falling temperatures and the falling leaves, but the thing I love most is how gratitude seems to fall from our lips a little easier than other times of year.

FrontGate Media provided me with a complimentary copy of a delightful children’s book that combines two of my favorite things: prayer and gratitude.

A Very Thankful Prayer by Bonnie Richner Jensen features the warm and cheery illustrations of Natalia Moore.  A sweet addition to Tommy Nelson’s “A Time to Pray” series, A Very Thankful Prayer helps children remember to thank God from the time they wake up ’til they’re tucked tight in bed. Sounds like the pray without ceasing life to me!

The easy-t0-read rhymes pair beautifully with the whimsical illustrations of little animal children dressed in their fall and winter clothes and busy doing their fall and winter things.

This sturdy board book is the perfect addition to my auntie library. You can get your copy on Amazon or at your favorite Christian book retailer.



Win a Copy of Jesus Always Devotional for Kids

When I think back on the days when my sons were small, one of my favorite things to do was to read to them. Often, that was the only time I could get them to be still. Up in my lap with a good book.

We read all kinds of things. Truck books. Winnie the Pooh’s adventures. The Little Critter books. Classics like Goodnight Moon.

But I always tried to have a collection of Bible stories and Christ-centered children’s books. Even when they were small, I tried to expose them to God’s big truth.

My boys are grown and figuring out their own way now, but God has given me another set of blonde-haired boys to snuggle with in the reading chair. Great-nephews are kind of like grand kids. You can love ’em up and send ’em home.

FrontGate Media provided me with a dandy of a book for my auntie library! I’ve been reading Sarah Young’s devotionals for years. Jesus Calling seems to always point me right back to God when I’m drifting off-course.

Her latest devotional, Jesus Always, is now available in a 365 devotional for kids! FrontGate Media is giving away a free copy. Go to this link to enter.

Our kids need Truth more than ever before. Jesus Always provide parents, grandparents (and aunties) a fun and engaging way to lead little ones to the true meaning of JOY: Jesus.

In this uncertain world, our children need to know there’s Someone who’s with them always. Someone whose love never fails. Someone who’s bigger than their fears.
