FOR THE CHILD IN EACH OF US Jul 4, 2006
According to Art Linkletter, kids say the darnedest things. They also say things that are touching, heart-warming, wise, innocent, and wonderfully spiritual. This charming collection of stories will appeal to any parent, grandparent, teacher, caregiver, or any student of innocence and insight. These stories remind us that children arrive in this world trailing clouds of glory. We can learn so much from their vision of life. These tales are alternately funny, touching, and enlightening. Highly recommended!
Keep These True Stories near you Dec 2, 2005
Little ones whispering in God's ear are powerful and always heard. This compilation of true prayer stories keeps me reading, not wanting to put it away, and then longing to find a chance to read it again. Often I smile, frequently show a tear. Many times the stories remind me of someone and someplace where God answered my personal prayer and I failed to recognize it appropriately, failed to thank God for His answer. I have found this book one I treasure as the stories encourage me to pray childlike prayers and to eagerly wait for the answer.
A must have on your book shelf! Nov 15, 2005
In the introduction to his book, Wayne Holmes writes: "My prayer is that you will once again see the world through eyes of hope, love, and wonder." And, that's exactly what this book will do for you. I was especially touched by Patty Stump's story, "Words Worth Remembering." As TJ learned that unanswered prayers can be hurtful and disappointing, he also learned that even when things don't work out the way we'd hoped, we can trust that God has our best interest at heart. And, we can always trust in Him and His Word. Story after story offers these all-important life lessons. I love this book so much. It touched my heart and challenged me to examine my own prayer life. This is a must read! I commend Wayne for compiling such a wonderful collection of stories. This is very well done!!!
Shout it from the rooftops Nov 1, 2005
Wayne Holmes has done it again! "Whispering in God's Ear" shouts loud and clear about God's love and purposes for His children of all ages. Prayer is integral to our Christian faith, and answered prayer is an outflowing of that faith. Wayne has carefully woven the various elements together into a quilt of words that embraces the reader. Using heartfelt anecdotes, each story reminds us that we serve a living and loving Father Who truly cares for and about His children.
Included in this collection are stories that will make you laugh, will bring tears to your eyes, and will even cause you to shout an "Amen!" or two. Stories of victory through the darkest night abound, bringing the reader closer to the source of victory.
Many noted writers are included in this compilation, as well as many first-timers. The quality of the writing is exceptional, and the selection of stories causes the entire volume to flow together as a single unit.
"Whispering in God's Ear" is a must-read for the seeker, for those in the desert times, and for those who are ministering in any capacity. Child-like faith is the theme, and readers will see themselves in at least one of the stories, and most likely in many.
Experiencing vs. Teaching Oct 24, 2005
There are a host of instructional books on prayer, but these true stories of children praying are refreshing! Whispering in God's Ear takes the reader to the heart of prayer, and as the adage states, "I'd rather see a sermon that hear one any day." Divided into eleven types of prayer, each section begins with children's actual prayers. Then Wayne invites the reader to allow God into each particular area. For example in the Children Asking introduction, he stimulates the reader's thoughts with, "somewhere between childhood and adulthood, many people have lost the art of asking." Christine, in Potato Chip Prayers, demonstrates this art. She "assumed that anything that was important to her, no matter how small, was important to her loving heavenly Father." Prayer can become rote or restricted to technique, but these stories are an encouraging push to place our desires and cares into God's waiting arms.
