Friends! I am a little behind on sharing our newest project here on the blog, but we are SO excited to share that we have written a new children’s book called, “How do you wish Jesus a Happy Birthday?”
Why did I write a children’s book?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I wrote it for my daughter. And for each and every little heart. Because our future starts with them. Do we want a different world? We start with teaching our molding our future’s hearts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I am being brutally honest I tend to lean more selfish and less selfless. And shepherding this girl’s heart toward Jesus so she will prayerfully live like Him and point others to Him is my most important job as her mama. It’s one I do not take lightly. So each day I desire to teach her to live for His glory, and to show kindness to others.⠀⠀
Check out our book trailer!
So many conversations about showing kindness to everyone. Conversations about different skin tones, those with physical differences, and differently-abled friends and how each one of us is made in God’s image and He cares so deeply for each and every single person. Conversations about what makes a good friend, how we can be Jesus’ light every day, and how we can serve others and be a blessing to others. And also conversations about the realities that not everyone lives as we do in a/c, with a reliable car, a fridge full of food, or the ability to go to bed with a full belly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each of these conversations serve as a reminder to me just as much as they’re hopefully a life-long lesson for her.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That’s the heart of “How do you wish Jesus a Happy Birthday?” Throughout each of our illustrations, there are varying skin tones and differently-abled friends carrying out acts of kindness to others. Listening to a friend, caring for the homeless, sharing a lunch with a friend, and donating toys are a few of the ways each of us can show Jesus’ love for someone else.
