Good Gifts Come from God helps children see all the good gifts God has given them and to remember James 1:17: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above.”
Every day God gives us good gifts to enjoy—family, friends, sunshine, hugs, smiles, and kind words. The greatest gift from God is sending his Son, Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. We should always thank God for his good and perfect gifts.
In Good Gifts Come from God, Sally Michael helps parents to instruct the mind, engage the heart, and influence the will of their children as they learn a new Scripture. Each page shows pictures and asks questions to engage preschoolers in understanding the verse. Repetition of the verse throughout the book helps children memorize the Bible verse (ESV) after just a few readings. Also included are pointers for helping children memorize and suggestions for activities that will reinforce “Living by the Word.”
Sally Michael is a cofounder of Truth78 and has authored curricula and books marked by a passion for developing God-centered resources for the spiritual development of children. For 16 years, Sally served as minister for children at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota under the leadership of John Piper and of her husband, David. Sally and David live in Indianapolis, Indiana. They enjoy spending time with their daughter Kristi, daughter Amy and her husband Gary, and three grandchildren.
“As important as it is to help our young children memorize key Scripture verses, it also makes a big difference if they are led to think deeply and clearly about what those verses mean! This new series of short and attractive books, Bible Verses to Remember, helps parents and Christian workers accomplish both goals. They focus on verses that express truths central to our Christian faith and the questions and narrative show what these verses mean and how important they are to our lives. What a gift to our children!”
Bruce A. Ware, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
