Zonderkidz Giveaway- "God is With Me" Books

Do you know little ones that need help dealing with fear?

Then have I got the books for you!



Overcoming fear has been a lifelong battle for me. It is a theme that God has been graciously working on in my heart for years. Now as a mom, it is interesting to see what brings fear out in my kids. I'm always on the lookout for ways to calm those fears and to build their faith.

Zonderkidz sent us a set of these books to review and keep for ourselves (Thank you!) and another set to share with all of you. At first, I was worried they may be geared toward a younger audience, and that my first and second grade daughters might not be interested in them. I was wrong!

The girls initially fell in love with the pictures in the book, (They'll let you know all about their favorites in the videos posted below) but what really touched my heart was seeing how much they took to heart the messages in the books.

The other night I was tucking in my oldest daughter, and she was scared of the dark. Then she remembered God is with me Through the Night. She looked at me and repeated, "I am loved! I am safe!" It was so sweet!

My girls wanted to let you know why they love the books, too: (Please forgive our amateur video skills) : )

Throughout this week, I'll be hosting a giveaway where one lucky reader will win both of these books just in time for Christmas!

On Tuesday, November 24th, I'll select a winner from the comments left using Random.org and contact the winner via email or through your blog. Make sure to leave your email address if you don't have a blog so I can let you know you've won. : )

Here's how to enter:

1. Leave me a comment about why you would like these books, who you would give them to if you won, or ways God has taught you to deal with fear.

2. If you share this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, or another social network, you can add an extra comment for each one you do and have extra chances to win.

Later this week, I'll tell you more about the author, Julie Cantrell, and the tips she has for helping kids deal with fear.


Stay Tuned!

Oh my girls would love these! I really like how they have entertaining pictures to go with the verses and reminders that God is always with us.

I would love to have these books for my girls and teach them to trust God from an early age. I too am always looking for ways to keep my girls from being fearful.

These books would be great for my oldest kiddo and probably for the others too, but for sure my oldest!

My girls would both love these books. They struggle with fear, especially at night. They know that God is with them, but have a hard time understanding how He can be there but they can't see Him. I'd love to win!

Those are really cute! The children from my school would definitely benefit from them and they'd be a great addition to my personal library as well!
