31 days of living free: love letters from God

Love letters from God book review and giveaway // Many Sparrows Blog

Grace became personal when I realized that the Bible isn’t a rule book or a history book, but a living, breathing love story.

His Story is love.

How often do we forget that God has a deep and wide love for us? That story after story, scripture shows us that we have a God who is in constant pursuit of our hearts? That we have a God who created us, who seeks and saves that which was lost? I often wonder how to communicate such important truth to my boys, and I’m grateful to have received a copy of the newly released Love Letters from God. I was genuinely checking my mail for it every afternoon — it’s so sweet.

And…I get a copy to share with one of you, too. (Enter at the giveaway end of the post.)

Accompanying each story in this sweet children’s storybook Bible is a little letter, tucked away in its own lift-the-flap envelope, written to little ones as if it’s from God. The stories are written in a welcoming and honest way, without being too “baby.” My favorite part, though? I really love the rich illustrations — the people are vibrant and colorful. The pages are just really beautiful.

Love Letters from God includes eighteen of the most popular Bible stories—nine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Following each story is a flip-top “love letter” from God. Joseph loves getting mail and has been so excited to “open” the letters. Each letter elaborates on the Bible story being told.

This book ends in an invitation for the children to write their own RSVP note to God. It’s so precious and Joseph and I have already had sweet conversations based on the book. (He was so surprised that we can really pray anywhere — God can always hear us?)

This week is all about living free at home, and I don’t think there’s any better way to set our hearts free from the weight of the world than with God’s timeless truth.

I hope you savor this sweet storybook as much as we have been. (And yes, I’ve spent some time reading it to myself and maybe got a little teary.)

About Kayla

I'm a full-time journalist turned work-at-home writer. I'm hitched to a shaggy-haired pastor and we're smitten with two wild + crazy boys: Joseph (3), who joined our family via international adoption, and Asher (1), who came the old-fashioned way. I drink strong coffee, I like pretty things, and I believe there's beauty in the broken. I hope Many Sparrows will encourage you to find worth and live a story worth sharing. When I’m not changing diapers and sweeping Cheerios, I’m tickling the ivory keys of my old school MacBook as a freelance writer and editor. And when I’m not doing that, I’m sneaking into the living room in the wee hours of the night to blog about all of the things. (Primarily faith, family, style, adoption, design, and happy thoughts.)
