On the back Cover:

You can always trust God. Bad things may happen.
But God always loves you, and He is always good.
God created this world and filled it with wonder and goodness. But sadly,
bad things happen sometimes too. Friends move away, and storm winds blow.
There are bullies, sickness, sadness, even death. But God Is Always Good
 will help you see that God is bigger than any badness.
With soft, tender words and scriptures, God Is Always Good offers
reassurance and comfort. Sweet animal characters fill the pages, gently
illustrating how God never leaves us. He is present in every smile, every hug,
every helping hand. Because no matter what happens in this world . . .

God is Always Good!

 

IMG_4638In God is Always Good little bunny asks his mama all kinds of questions like:  “Mommy what is God like?”  “Does God make bad things happen?”  and “Where is God when bad happen?” Follow along my mama answers the inquisitive little bunnys questions. In God is Always Good does such a wonderful job answering some of the really tough questions like when Little Bunny’s mama how sad he is when someone dies and she told him “God made Heaven wonderful”  This book couldn’t have come at better time for my family. Over the last few months we have dealt with disappointment and heart ache and supported friend going through heart ache, from family deaths to terminal diagnosis. My oldest son is only 9, but in his young life has had two cousins in Heaven {they both died as infants, neither to SIDS}. As Elias gets older he has more and more questions, he remembers his cousin Olivia’s funeral. As you can imagine it’s very difficult to have answers to these questions. This little book gently covers a lot of the questions he asks about the deaths of his cousins. I think it has really comforted him when he is feeling sad. {The twins were born 3 years after Olivia died so they don’t really ask questions}

There is a page about change as well. I loved this, my kids do not like change…It’s scary, it’s different, it’s not always happy and fun, but it is apart of life. God is Always Good works so hard to instill safety and comfort in the arms of the Lord!

Inside the book each page shoes little bunny asking his mama question and her sweet and gentle response. Along with beautiful illustrations, each page has an applicable Bible verse on it!

I love the question “Is there anything God can’t do?” Mama bunny answers in such a wonderful way “Well, there are a couple things he can’t do. He can’t tell a lie and you can’t break a promise” I just love that. As I read that my kids had such big smiles on their faces. They felt safe knowing that “God keeps every promise he makes” ! This pages corresponding Bible verse was perfection

“What He says He will do, he does. What He promises, He keeps.”

Numbers 23:19

Not only does this book answer some really hard questions but it also brings comfort to even the littlest listener!

The book ends with John 3:16 and “God is always good!”

If you have children that have or are dealing with death of a family member, friend or pet, anxiety or stress over change or is dealing with bullies, I would HIGHLY recommend this book for your family.

WIN IT!
