My Friend Jesus Book Review and Giveaway- #sponsored #giveaway #tommynelsonmommy

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 6:50 AM
Disclosure: I'm a Tommy Nelson Mommy and received a copy for review. However, all opinions are my own.


As a Christian parent and grandparent, I want my children and grandson to know Jesus. My grandson is almost a pre-teen and to me Jesus is the most important person in his life right now. He's getting to the point where peer pressure is starting and without Jesus, he would be lost.

My Friend Jesus by Kathryn Slattery takes kids on a personal journey with Jesus. My grandson has a lot of Christian books in his collection, but this book in my opinion is the most important book he'll ever read. My Friend Jesus is 5 stars and two thumbs up in this grandma's book.

For  ages 5-10 My Friend Jesus helps parents share the Good News with their children and lead them to a lifetime relationship with Christ. This wonderful book also Invites children to know how much God loves them in words they can understand.

My Friend Jesus is available from Thomas Nelson for $12.99 or you can enter to win a copy on the Rafflecopter below.


Description

Jesus can be your friend and Savior. 
All Christian parents want their children to come to a relationship with Jesus. My Friend Jesus is written in fresh, clear language that children can understand and is appropriate for all denominations. The book not only tells the gospel story about Jesus, but also, in the most natural, gentle way, introduces children to a personal relationship with Him. A prayer at the end of the book guides children into that life-changing friendship with Jesus. This is the book author Kathryn Slattery wishes she had when her own children were young—which is the reason she wrote it! 
Originally published as The Gospel for Kids, this book sold more than 100,000 copies. This new book will feature beautiful new art and lightly edited text. 
“It’s one of the best books of Jesus for young people I have encountered.”  —Madeleine L’Engle, Newberry Medal–winning author of the bestselling children’s classic A Wrinkle in Time 
“Kathryn Slattery has told the story so simply, briefly, cutting right to the essentials, managing to mix the profoundest truth with humor, talking to children without talking down to them. The Gospel for Kids goes on our grandparent bookshelf with great anticipation.”  —Elizabeth and John Sherrill, coauthors of bestselling inspirational classics The Hiding Place and The Cross and the Switchblade 
“A magnificent piece of writing, making the Gospel so plain and at the same time losing none of its beauty. The book is very attractive for adults also.”  —Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, author of the international bestseller The Power of Positive Thinking and founder of Guideposts magazine

that's a very hard question and one I'm going to have to think about when my grandchildren are a little older. They are too young right now to understand.
