A Mighty God

No comet moves as fast as God,

No star can blaze as bright.

No planet in the universe

Can match his awesome might.

 

God is the source of everything,

Creator of us all.

He made and blessed this whole wide world,

All creatures great and small.

May the Faith Be With You: Bedtime Prayers is filled with colorful, space-themed art and fifteen simple prayers for children to read with their parents at bedtime or anytime. This padded cover board book even glows in the dark!


My Thoughts

I received a copy of this book for my honest thoughts.
I have to say I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand it is cute, it does make you think space and star wars and I can see how that would appeal to some. On the other hand it’s a bible I would pick up for my own children. I feel like it tries too hard to follow current “fads” and trends vs staying true to the word of God. Don’t get me wrong with each prayer there is a bible verse. But also images that speak of well space and space exploration. I can see this book appealing to young kids but I would temper it with helping them to understand what each bible verse means and exploring more of God’s word. It says it’s a Glow in the Dark book, I haven’t tried that yet but I will. It is a cute book if used the proper way and as an introduction to God’s word. I might would give it to young child who is struggling with understanding science and it’s place in learning God’s word. But I would NOT let this be the only young reader prayer book or board book they have.

The book seems to be well made and would be easy to clean off and care for. The book is a board book therefore you do not have pages that you will worry about tearing. The price IMHO is responsible for the quality of the product.
