God Delights in You!


If you are anything like me there are probably times that you don't feel very delightful! In fact, I am going to go out on a limb and say that there may even be times that you don't act very delightful! LOL! Well, don't get too down on yourself. The bottom line is that we are all human. None of us do this thing called life perfectly. 

Why is it that we find it so easy to believe that God can forgive us of our sins, but we somehow forget that He delights in us! We find it easy to trust Him for our salvation, but we somehow find it hard to believe that He will forgive us again when we slip up.

When our perspective is wrong and we believe that what God wants from us is merely a religious interaction, we get things mixed up. The key to seeing God and His true character is to remember that He is all about relationships. When we change our viewpoint, our perspective gets shifted back into alignment.
So how do we rest in the fact that our Lord delights in us. That He desires to get to know us, and more than that....He desires us to get to know Him. We need to spend time in God's Word learning His character. Psalm 149:4 says, "For the Lord takes delight in His people, He crowns the humble with victory." We can trust our God. We can rest assured that He is working on our behalf even when it doesn't feel like it. We can take Him at His Word and know that when He says that He delights in us.....that is the truth.

So as you go through your week, remember how much God loves you.....and take heart. We serve a good Father that delights in you!

Zonderkidz: The Beginner's Bible Review ~ Homeschool Review Crew

The Beginner's Bible {Zonderkidz}
PRESENTS. . .

The Beginner's Bible {Zonderkidz}
NOW WITH ALL NEW 3-D ARTWORK!

Where should I begin? I am so excited that I had the opportunity to review The Beginner's Bible by Zonderkidz. Although my own children are older than six (6), all three of my kids were raised reading from The Beginner's Bible. In fact the first book that my oldest daughter learned to read from was the Beginner's Bible! So having the opportunity to review it with the all new 3-D artwork was a special treat for me!

I have admitted often that raising children is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I remember spending time praying about having children, knowing that the desire of my heart was to raise them to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. Some of you may agree with me that parenting is a difficult task, but thankfully Zonderkidz has done their best to help us all out by creating a fun, interactive and easy to read Bible story book! 

The Beginner's Bible has been a favorite with children ages 6 and under since it was originally released in 1987. So let's think about this. . .for close to 30 years, The Beginner's Bible has been helping us as parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles share the Truth of God's Word with our little ones! I for one truly appreciate it!

I remember the look on each of my girls' faces when they received their very own "first Bible" The Beginner's Bible. The easy-to-read text has always been one of the many benefits of this amazing book, but now there is bright, full-color, 3D illustrations on each and every page. I didn't think it was possible, but I think Zonderkidz has managed to make the 90 plus stories come to life even more than ever before! This is the perfect way to introduce young children the the stories and characters in the Bible in a way that will stay with them for years to come.

With my children grown, I took time to look through the updated version of The Beginner's Bible for myself. I also sat with my niece and read stories to her from it. I loved seeing her face light up when I pulled it out! Although it is usually hard for a 3 year old to sit still, she sure sits still to hear stories read to her from it!

I highly recommend The Beginner's Bible. It is good for every home library. I know that family devotion time with my girls wouldn't have been the same without this fantastic book, and I look forward to a time that I can gift it to my grandkids as well! (I am definitely not trying to rush anything!) So, if you don't have kids of your own and are thinking about a gift for a child age 6 and under, The Beginner's Bible by Zonderkidz is definitely the way to go! Pick one up for someone special in your life today!

You don't have to take my word for it. . . check The Beginner's Bible out on social media.

The Beginners Bible Review for Flyby


Recently I had the opportunity to review a great product....The Beginner's Bible! For some of you this is not anything new. Some of you have raised your children on this amazing Bible story book and you will agree with me when I say that it is a magnificently illustrated Bible story book and a must have for families of young children!

As a mom of three I can honestly say that one of my biggest goals was to make sure that they learned about God. With each of my kiddos, their first Bible was The Beginner's Bible. Even though my kids are 22, 18, and 15, I can remember how excited they were when they received it. They were so excited to have their very own Bible that was easy to understand! I have so many wonderful memories of sitting with them and reading stories over and over as they enjoyed all of the magnificent pictures!


                         

The Beginner's Bible has been a favorite with young children and their parents since its release in 1989 with over 25 million products sold. Now it's redesigned with fresh new art that will excite children ages 6 and under, for many more years to come. After raising three kids with this amazing Bible, I have realized that it is a timeless classic...much like the original book that the stories are from.



If you want to watch the face of your child to light up, give them the gift of God's Word that is on their level. The Beginner's Bible will fill them with the joy of reading the Bible, which is what we all want for our children!

The easy-to-read text and bright, full-color illustrations on every page make it a perfect way to introduce young children to the stories and characters of the Bible. With new vibrant three-dimensional art and compelling text, more than 90 Bible stories come to life.

I highly recommend The Beginner's Bible. This is a great gift idea for your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. You can be sure that it will be a welcomed addition to family devotions with your youngsters!

The Beginner's Bible was named the 2006 Retailers Choice Award winner in Children's Nonfiction.

Not Forgotten

I was reading my devotion the other day , and it really resonated with me.

Has there ever been times when you felt that God had forgotten His promises to you? Rest assured that HE NEVER DOES!

No matter what amount of time has transpired without seeing His promise come to pass....rest assured that God is still working and moving. Think about the story of Joseph. He was sold into slavery and spent time in prison...but God knew what He was doing. And at just the right time, God raised him up to help save his family!

God's plan is always perfect and He knows what He's doing. So rest assured that God always has your best interest at heart! 

So when things don't go exactly the way you expected, ask Him to speak to you and guide your path. He will teach you His ways and guide you in the way you should go!
