New Growth

In Sadie Finds Her Voice, children will learn that God is with them when they are shy and feel nervous about meeting new people, and he will help them to find their words.

Sadie Bunny should be excited to stay overnight with her cousin Ivy. But instead, she is nervous. What if Ivy’s friends don’t like her? What if she can’t get any words out? But after a chance meeting with a scary cat piano teacher, armed with words from the Good Book, Sadie learns that Jesus can help even when you feel shy.  

Edited by counselor Aaron Sironi, Sadie Finds Her Voice is part of the Good News for Little Hearts series that brings gospel wisdom and biblical counsel to families. Based on CCEF’s model of hope and help, each story focuses on an animal family’s real-life issues, encouraging young readers toward a growing relationship with Jesus during challenging circumstances.

“Sadie will give your child words to talk about feeling shy and introverted, and it will give you direction for a profitable and memorable conversation. A fine resource.”
Ed Welch, Faculty and counselor, Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF); author of Someone I Know Is Grieving

“I am a shy person, as was my husband. When we first met, he struggled to speak in front of twelve middle school students at a camp. Then he learned to speak to thousands at conferences. This book would have helped him with his fears as a child. It shows how God can give words and courage to navigate the roadblocks that come with shyness. Be sure to read the comments for parents at the end before reading the book to your child. It will help augment your understanding of what fuels shyness and how God's Word speaks to us about it.”
Nan Powlison

“From their earliest years, our children are being nurtured by a culture which convinces them that their identity is to be found in how others see them. Believing this lie, they grow up living in fear of man. In this little book with a big and necessary counter-cultural message rooted in the gospel, Aaron Sironi gives parents an effective tool for teaching their children to overcome their shyness and fear by learning the trustworthy promises of God, taking their eyes off of themselves, and serving others.”
