I love Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 Ministries. Whenever I hear her voice come on the radio, my ears perk up because I know the wisdom she shares is something I will need. When I see her statuses on Facebook, I stop and read. Because if I do, I'll be impacted. But until recently, I was unaware that Lysa also had profound wisdom to share with children, through her new children's book, It Will Be Okay.

We received this book in the mail last month, and I immediately fell in love. It's one of those books I really enjoy reading and I urge the kids to pick it when they're making their bedtime selections. The book is about Little Seed, who enjoys living in his cozy seed packet in the farmer's dusty shed, and Little Fox, who enjoys living in the safety of his den. But when howling winds and dark shadows invade Little Fox's safety and the farmer plants Little Seed down into new territory, the friends are nervous and afraid. However, this book shows us that the farmer is good and kind, and Little Seed and Little Fox really have nothing to fear. The farmer, just like our Heavenly Father, knows what is best for them, and he is always looking out for them.

My girls love this book as much as I do. At ages 5 and 2, it keeps both of their interests well and teaches them the important message, that no matter what changes around us, God never does. And we have nothing to fear.

This book also has FREE downloadable coloring pages online, which my girls thoroughly enjoyed coloring. I even got in on the fun and colored my own page. As we colored, I asked the girls what they learned from this story and talked to them about their fears. Turns out my girls are either really brave or really prideful because they couldn't think of much they feared. Ha! Nevertheless, I'm glad that when fear or change comes (and I know it will), we have a book like this to help remind us that God is in control. And like the farmer, He is good and kind.
