If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart Oct 30, 2008
Sometimes toddlers become frustrated when they want to help, but don't know how. Maybe we as their guide don't always know either! Through this rhyming text, they will begin to see that Jesus uses them in different ways to show that He does live inside their hearts, by the way they use their eyes, hands, mouths, arms, gifts and talents! The colorful pictures will also help them identify kind acts. Raking leaves with Daddy, or massaging Mom's shoulders. There is something for every little hand to do.
~Loretta from Christian Children's Book Review
Beutiful Book! Dec 8, 2007
Beautifully illustrated book. Little ones will learn what they can look forward to when Jesus comes to live in their hearts. And the adults who read the book to them will stop and wonder, "Can other people tell that Jesus lives in my heart?" This was my thought.
Children also learn how God uses us. He uses all of our parts: our eyes to see needs, our mouth to apologize and offer encouragement, our arms to give hugs, our hands to give back rubs.
A Wonderful 5-Star Children's Book Oct 30, 2007
If Jesus lived inside my heart, would other people know?
If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart takes that question and answers it in a charming and colorfully illustrated way to teach your preschooler what it means to live for Jesus, and to do what Jesus would have you do.
The story is written in rhyme, and is sure to hold the child's interest. I sat down and read this book right away to my two- and five-year-old right away, and they both loved it.
If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart is hardcover, and perfectly sized to be a stocking stuffer for Christmas, or a gift anytime. I loved the story and the thought, and this would even be excellent for children's lessons in preschool children's church classes.
I highly recommend this cute little book for your favorite preschooler-or as a gift to the church nursery or preschool departments. Its sturdy, so not easily destroyed, and the children will love it.
Armchair Interviews says: Great story for three to six year olds.
Timeless Truths for Young Hearts Oct 19, 2007
If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart, by Jill Roman Lord. Illustrated by Amy Wummer.
Jill Roman Lord's latest book, If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart, is a wonderful children's book filled with timeless truths. Through smooth, easy-to-read verse, the book shows children what a personal relationship with Jesus Christ looks like. It describes what a child with Jesus inside him might do in different scenarios, such as be a friend to a lonely child, apologize when wrong, share his gifts with others, and more. The last two pages remind us all that Jesus shows His love for others through us.
The illustrations are warm and friendly with a nice use of color. When my daughter and I read it together, she loved the page where the girl makes a mess during her bath in the bathroom. Maybe my daughter sees herself in that little girl's "oh no!" expression. My favorite page shows a little girl with pig-tails praying beside her bed, with a message assuring readers that once they invite Jesus into their hearts, He will never let them go. A simple verse about a concept filled with deep meaning. Jesus holding onto us forever: What could be better than that?
