What child does not love to receive mail? What if that child could receive, open and read his or her own personal mail from God? The Love Letters from God will invite them to do just that! Accompanying each story in this unique children’s Bible is a very special and encouraging letter, each tucked away in its own lift-the-flap envelope, just for them. Written for children ages four to eight, the Love Letters from God includes eighteen of the most popular Bible stories—nine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how each letter elaborates on the Bible story being told. A very special Bible verse, entitled God’s Wonderful Words To You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a mere memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be God’s very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope. This book will culminate in an invitation for the children to write their own RSVP to God.

My children and I have read the first two stories and are highly enjoying it. I strongly suggest this book to go along with your devo times with your family. My kids get so excited to lift the letter flap and read what is geared for them. The book is designed for the parent to personalize the letter and write their child/children in the Dear part of the letter. Each letter is so encouraging and helps children identify with a God full of love and adoration for his children. I truly think my children identify better with the story with these little letters because it takes the story and then personalizes it for them. For instance the first story is about Adam and Eve and the snake. We all know the story but in the letter it asks if they have done anything they should not have just like Adam and Eve. We all know kids have done something wrong and most likely even very recent to the day. The letter goes on to remind the children that when they say sorry, God erases the wrong doing and only sees his love for his children. My 7 year old daughter had such a big beautiful (toothless- she lost her two middle teeth) smile because she is understanding GRACE!

This book has been a wonderful addition to our nighttime Bible reading sessions that leave my kids encouraged and feeling loved and adored by their Daddy God in Heaven. As the Christmas season approaches make sure you put this on your child, grandchild, god child, or any other child's Christmas list! I am excited to keep reading each night but I think my 3 and 6 year olds are more excited!

Thanks Zondervan for supplying me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine.

(I received this book from Zondervan in exchange for an honest review.}

Love Letters From God is a beautiful book containing three powerful elements with each Bible account - a well-written story that conveys the Bible message clearly to young readers & listeners, a Love Letter reinforcing the idea taught and reminding those little ears that God knows & loves them, a verse that wraps everything up. My children love this book. The illustrations are beautiful. Read my full review at www.oneredeemedmom.com (Posted on 9/20/14)

My Review:

First of all, I love the premise of this book! This book is a collection of 18 Bible stories that illuminate God's word and creates a sensation in young children to know their Father more intimately. Included with each story is a love letter from God written to each child that is reading the book. There is a place in the letter for the parent to fill in the child's name, so the child will feel even more special.

My favorite story in the book was that of Samuel's call. It is the epitome of the verse, "I will send for you by name. You belong to me." Isaiah 43:1. The love letter that accompanies this story is such a sweet reminder to the child that God will call to them one day as well. It's just a sweet sentiment that will bring each child who reads from the book or that is read to that they are truly unique and special in God's eyes and that, that will never change. To top it all off there is an invitation to the child from God in the back of the book and a place for the child to write a love letter to God as well.

The author has written such a sweet book to help any child from the ages of 4-8 very loved! I loved the book and you will too! If you would like to purchase the book you can at this link.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. (Posted on 9/17/14)

This book arrived today and I could not wait to read it. The very thought of God writing a letter to a child was a concept that I wish I had thought of myself. I enjoyed the Bible stories, some of them more than others, but I loved each and every letter that was attached to the pages. They were insightful and will touch a child's heart at their level. I was also in awe of the invitation in the back and the blank letter for the child to write a letter to God. A wonderful story, the illustrations are great, colorful but not overwhelming the message of the book. 5 stars from this reviewer.

This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review. (Posted on 9/16/14)

“I had so much fun making the world! But do you know the very best thing I made? It was you!”

Every child loves getting mail, so can you imagine their excitement when they open this book and turn the pages to see actual letters from God written to them? It is a beautifully written and gorgeously illustrated interactive-lift-the-flap envelope-style book. It is written for children ages 4-8. There are a total of 18 Bible Stories with nine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Each story culminates with a Bible verse and a letter from God. At the end of the book there is a blank space for your child to write their own letter to God.

What a FABULOUS book! I found this to be such a fascinating way to introduce your child to the Bible and listening to how God may speak encouragement and inspiration to your little ones through His word. This book begins by making your child feel so special.

This book would make an excellent gift to a child for birthdays or holidays, but can you imagine the inspiration and encouragement it would give to a child who is ill? This will be a book that will be read over and over again. I would highly recommend this book for any child ages 4-8. I completely adored this book!

Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own. (Posted on 9/12/14)
