A devotional book for children! It majors on what Jonah was angry about and what we need to be reminded of ... that our great big God is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love! While the pictures make the book look like it's for children (ages 6-9), the thoughts in this devotional are powerful and tailor made for anyone who needs to think about how great God is. The small bites of truth on each page cause you to think and are matched with intriguing/interesting drawings. A beautiful book that can help you wake up to the fact that God is gracious, kind, loving and patient. - D. A. Cason, Westminster Bookstore Staff, 2012
“...Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing may be the best, first introduction for children to have their own time with Jesus…Best of all, it is saturated with an understanding of the Gospel, God’s love freely given to us, but purchased by Jesus. Although designed for children, these are thoughts that should make all of our hearts sing.” (From the Foreword) - Tim Keller, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York
