NEW RELEASE!!! The Faith, Hope, Love Devotional

Now available!

In August, we released the sweetest little trio of board books you ever did see: How Far Is Faith?, How High Is Hope?, and How Big Is Love?

And today, we release the grand finale (drumroll, please): the Faith, Hope, Love Devotional

This chunky little padded hardcover (6x7 inches, 224 pages) contains 100 devotions for parents (and grandparents and aunts and uncles and babysitters and teachers) and children to share together. There are 33 devotions each on faith, hope, and love, with the 100th speaking to the everlasting importance of "these three things."

Of course, "these three things" are taken from 1 Corinthians 13:13. "Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love." I've said it once, but it bears repeating. If these are the three things that "remain," that last forever, then these are the three things that we should impart upon our children first and foremost, early and often. 

I hope, I pray, that I have given you four little tools to do just that. 

The board books introduce these three concepts with simple, concrete comparisons, answering the questions of a curious little one. And the devotional dives in deeper, exploring each topic of faith, hope, and love from thirty-three different Bible-based angles (whew!), with questions and lines for writing that prompt the little one to respond in his or her own words (with the writing help of an adult).

As an added bonus (that I realized in retrospect!), the completed Faith, Hope, Love Devotional will be a precious keepsake for those children to look back on and see just how far their walk of faith, hope, and love has carried them--a legacy that they can eventually pass down to their own children.

And maybe, just maybe, what I only realized in retrospect was God's plan all along: to make this more than a book by creating a legacy, a legacy that will last long after the pages of this little book has turned to dust. 

A legacy that remains . . .

That lasts forever . . .

These three things.

All four of these books are so beautiful! You are leaving a legacy, but obediently trusting and following God as He instructs you to write these perfect words for little ones (and the big ones--that's us, who hang out with them). Thank you for sprinkling seeds of faith, hope and love throughout the world!
