Children’s Corner: Where Do I Find Jesus?

30 Mar

Twins Emma and Liam are eager to introduce their new friend Abby to a special place and a special someone. As Abby uncovers the surprise, she gets help from a delightful dog duo to discover someone special who loves her very much—Jesus! With a letter from the author that includes the gospel message, this fun story offers a unique way to introduce young readers to Jesus and show them why and how to find Him.

This newest picture book in The Bible Is My Best Friend brand, Where Do I Find Jesus? joins Meet My Best Friend, The Bible Is My Best Friend Family Devotional, and The Bible Is My Best Friend Bible Storybook.

 

 

Sheila Walsh is a Scottish lass known as “the encourager” to the over 5.5 million women she’s met and spoken to around the world. She loves being a Bible teacher, making God’s Word practical, and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again.

Her message: GOD IS FOR YOU!

Sheila also enjoys being an author — in fact she likes to write everyday — and has sold more than five million books. Her newest, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MESS, STRENGTH FOR THIS BEAUTIFUL, BROKEN LIFE, (book and Bible study) releases in November 2017. She is also the co-host of the television program Life Today, airing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia.

Her favorite way to spend a day is to support missions work through the Life Today ministry, working worldwide to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, provide medical help to the sick, and rescue boys and girls from sex slavery. She most recently traveled to Africa, the Dominican Republic, and Southeast Asia.

Calling Texas home, Sheila lives in Dallas with her husband, Barry; her son, Christian; and three little dogs — Belle, Tink, and Maggie.

Sarah Horne grew up in snowy Derbyshire, UK with some goats and a brother.

She learnt to draw whilst trying to explain her reasoning for an elaborate haircut at the age of nine. Sarah then honed her skills on the mean streets of Falmouth, studying Illustration. Here, there were daily street battles of scribbling resulting in many paper cuts, but some very nice drawing.

Alongside working on some very funny children’s titles, Sarah has also worked on commissions for The Guardian, The Sunday Times, Kew Gardens, Sesame Street and for IKEA as their Children’s Illustrator In Residence.

She now draws, paints, writes and giggles from underneath a pile of paper at her studio in London.

Sarah’s books have sold internationally in Mexico, Japan, Korea, Portugal, Germany, US, Australia and NZ.

 

My Impressions: 

For Christian parents, the most important part of raising their kids is introducing them to Jesus. From singing Jesus Loves Me to tucking them in at night with bedtime prayers, parents consistently tell their children of God’s love and care. But what about explaining the need for a savior and instructing them on how to know they are a child of God? Sheila Walsh has written Where Do I Find Jesus? to help parents lead their children to a personal relationship with Jesus. With quirky and colorful illustrations, twins Emma and Liam tell their new friend about Jesus in a natural and simple manner. With funny commentary from some four-footed friends, the book is easy to read and understand by children ages 4-8. While your kids will enjoy the story, there is a big, big bonus for you as well: a guide to explain the need for a savior and the way to accept Jesus into one’s heart, complete with scripture references. Where Do I Find Jesus? is the perfect launch pad into deeper discussions about God and Jesus.

Recommended.

Audience: kids 4-8 and their parents.
