i know i have mentioned the jesus storybook bible several times lately.
i even put a link on my sidebar.
but i feel like i need to do a post on it, since, while lots of you mommies(and daddies) know exactly what i am talking about, some may be wondering what it even is...
this book is a lovely, extensive group of Bible stories.
the amazing, significant part, that keeps every person in my family(including grown ups) coming back for more, is the way the entire book is connected.
it isn't just a buncha stories.
it is many stories that make up one long story.
in a very simple voice it continues to remind you of how each story is working toward God's rescue of his children.
it repeats this idea over and over...in almost every one.
it reminds you not to forget...the point is God and what he is doing for you.
it is not condescending.
it is beautiful and i just LOVE it.
we first bought it as a ibook.
we would wait for daddy to get home with his ipad and then read a few chapters every night.
a couple nights of reedo getting home late or having over night trips and i realized we needed our own copy.
i headed to our local christian book store and they had one nice copy.
then we got in the car and ripped it open..... and i realized it included the entire book on CD!
wow! the kids have not been able to get enough!
they ask for it on every car ride.
i was even driving by myself the other day and left it on! ha!
it was the best 24.99 i've EVER spent.
if you are a parent, you MUST get one.
if not for the children, for yourself!
check out the website by clicking here.
you will also notice that you can watch weekly Bible videos on that site...very cool!
i knew i needed to tell you friends about this, so i payed jake 3 gummy bears to let me take some pictures of him reading it in the garden(that is just where he is with pictures right now, i can't really blame him, i am kinda crazy).
...then i came downstairs this morning and look what i found!
there was craziness happening all around.
ella was whining.
ty was sick.
reedo had music on.
but just look at my boy.
eating his sausage muffins and reading that Bible.
moms, is there ANYTHING better than that?
ever in the whole world?
i think not.
and just to put a big smile on your face,
look at this little sick fella.
i just love my sons.
how could i deserve such sweet little boys in my life?
i am beyond grateful for their unique little lives and souls.
"and i will wait on the Lord...
and i will hope in Him.
here am i, and the children God has given me!"
