I loved how relatable the text was. You put us in the story to relate to the hurting and broken, which relates to the hurting and broken parts of us. The stories are written in beautifully descriptive fairy tale form. Very easy to read! I love how the questions following the stories reference to Biblical stories that relate to them, challenging the readers to imagine the details that are in the Bible and how that relates to their personal life.
I have never, in all my life, read a story that so poignantly and compellingly described exactly what Christ has done for us. This story invites the reader beyond information and into holy experience.
My daughter and I just read the first one,”A Sheep’s Tale,” before bed. Her response was an emphatic,”I REALLY liked that.” Followed by,”Who wrote that and where is it from?” When I asked her why she liked it so much she explained that she likes how it tells of how God is always with us and how He heals us. For me, it has stirred up thought and self reflection about how far from “the fold” we wander and sometimes don’t even realize until it’s too late. Thought-provoking and comforting all at the same time!
I think the verse from John 4:6 ” I am the way, the truth and the life…” comes alive in this story in all it’s fullness and we learn that the reward of salvation can only be found through the Lord. As some try to deceive us, fool us on the wrong path so we lay astray or even shake our faith, this story brings us back to how much we really need to seek God for wisdom, strength and guidance. Loved it!

While you're here, have you found yourself frustrated by the lack of simple (but deep) devotional material in the book world?
That's why I wrote "Wise for Salvation"! If you're looking for a simple pick-up-and-do devotional for kids ages 2-6, you've finally found the right one! Here's what real moms have to say about it...
The reading and activities are the right length to keep kids interested and engaged and the questions help to give depth and perspective.
Children are always being pointed back to what God is doing in the story and what God is able to do in children’s own lives.
Best preschooler devotional book we’ve used!
...and here's what Pastors are saying about i!
Wise for Salvation resonates with my convictions that God’s Word is relevant and active in even the youngest. Christie has written devotionals that are creative and interactive to capture kids’ attention and imagination, taking kids and parents on a joy-filled journey of encountering God.
Wise for Salvation has accomplished what few resources have been able to do: provide interactive devotionals for young learners that are at the same time simple, interactive and faithful to scripture.
If you take the adventure, you will watch your little one(s) growing in their love for Jesus, and I am sure you will find yourself growing in your love for Jesus as well.
But it's more than cute. It's life-changing for you and your kids!
