God Gave Us Family (Blogging-For-Books)

God Gave Us FamilyMy “Kid’s Ministry” library is a bit bigger now. Over at Blogging for Books, I was graciously offered and given a copy of “God Gave Us Family” by Lisa Tawn Bergren (with David Hohn as the book’s artist). This isn’t the first time I have come across Bergren’s work, as I have reviewed several of her books. Her children’s books are my favorite from my collection.

God Gave Us Family does not disappoint, my  friends. Through this book, we are able to teach our children that it is God who has lovingly given us our families. Some times, our family just doesn’t look like other families. . . . but, it’s okay. Our great God has given us a family. The beautiful thing is acknowledging God has given us these beautiful, annoying, much loved people to be inside our family. He will even bring in others who aren’t related to us, but have become our family. This shows the goodness of God.

This is a beautiful story about one family in particular, but looks at how Little Pup views his own family – and the families around him. Our family life can look so different in comparison to that of others, yet it is still a gift sent directly from God.

The artwork in this book is absolutely amazing! Hohn and Bergren are a great team, where both of their talents are orchestrated – making this beautiful book! I absolutely adore this cute book and definitely recommend it to others.

Be sure to pick up a copy for the little ones in your life! This is a beautiful book, that can help us point our children and loved ones to the One who has made them and our families. Right now on Amazon, you can receive this hardcover for under $9.50!
