God Made All of Me

Unfortunately, this world hands us things that we must learn how to interact with, pray about, deal with, handle with truth and the gospel, and prepare our kids to face as they get older.  This is the sad reality in which we live.

Fortunately, Justin Holcomb and his wife, Lindsey, have written an incredible resource for children (toddlers through 8 years old) to instruct, inform, and prepare them for how they live in their bodies.  And how they respond to physical touch.

Child abuse, both physical and sexual and mental, is so rampant these days.  We must know how to prepare our children for what they (prayerfully won’t) might encounter.  The more our children are prepared the more we as parents can hopefully prevent harm to our children.

What I love about God Made All of Me is that is tells children that their bodies are good because God made them and it teaches them the importance of communication with trusted adults.  Inappropriate sexual touch can be totally embarrassing to children – they may not know how to tell their parents.  But, if you keep the communication lines open with your child, and teach them that God did make them in His image and it is wrong for others to touch them in a wrong way – you will be equipping your child!

This book comes out this week – and you (and your church library) need this book.  My Mom has been gracious enough to provide one for you to win.

So, all you have to do is tell me what truth you preach to yourself to keep you from worrying about all the evil that might affect your children as they grow.  Truth to guard against evil!  So important as we train our children up to love Jesus.

Litfuse provided me this book through New Growth Press to review.  All opinions are my own.

    I am reminded that The Lord loves my kids more than I ever will. His plan is perfect and I can trust Him.

    I remind myself that the Lord causes all things to work together for the good for those who love Him. If my children trust Jesus, even their worst pain will be, to them, a good gift from God. I also remind myself that He is transcendent. There is nothing that can happen here or in my parenting or in this evil world that can thwart His plans. He is able to redeem all that we fear.

    I often ask myself if I truly believe that God is sovereign. I always answer yes, and therefore if I believe it, I must live in that truth. God is sovereign, even if the worst imaginable happens. Of course I pray it doesn’t, but if it should, even then… His character doesn’t change.

    I know that the Lord’s ways are higher than my ways. That He cares for them more than I do and is coming back to make all things right! He is sovereign over all and works all things together for His good!

    The Lord is sovereign and he works all things for his good. I can only do so much to protect my children and the God I trust will do the rest. If something bad does happen, I know he’ll work it for his glory and our good.

      And that is so tough to practice every minute of every day, isn’t it!

    That God in His infinite wisdom and sovereign control knows what Is planned for my children. That may or may not include what my plans are but I have to be ok with that. Sin is all around us and will affect them. As much as I would love to put them in a box so evil can’t…that is not displaying God’s glory through their lives. However, what I can do is continually show them the love of Christ through His word and my example (as tainted as that is) and pray without ceasing.
