From the Publisher
An easy way to help young girls see God’s promises and how they can rely on His love in their daily lives.
The promise verses in this book are selected from the best-selling International Children’s Bible® to offer comfort and encouragement when a girl is feeling afraid, lonely, worried, angry, dissatisfied, discouraged, sad, rebellious, impatient, or sick . . . and when they need reassurance of God’s protection, love, forgiveness, help . . . and that He listens when they pray. It’s a great way for children to hide God’s Word in their hearts.

Sample text: Monsters. Spiders. Being alone. Do any of these things make you feel afraid? When you start to feel fear, hold on tight to these words: God promises to take your fear away!

“So don’t worry, because I am with you. Don’t be afraid, because I am your God. I will make you strong and will help you. I will support you with my right hand that saves you.” Isaiah 41:10
I received and reviewed the book "God's Promises for Girls" by Jack Countryman and Amy Parker. The book itself is too cute! My girls are 3 and 7 years old.  My 7 year old just made her First Holy Communion, so this book was perfect timing for a gift. As soon as she received it, we both sat down to see what it was about. She LOVED it!  Her very own quotes, illustrations and words of encouragement from the scripture for young girls.  Her very own book that she can always look back on.  My daughters reads it before bed each night, at least a few versus.

Parents:  This, like I did, is the perfect gift for a young girl for her Communion, Birthday or just to say "I Love You".

I would definately recommend this book.
