That's When I Talk to God by Dan and Ali Morrow - REVIEWED

My Thoughts:

Bedtime prayers are something commonly taught in many Christian homes. However, that is just an introduction to our relationship with God. Dan and Ali Morrow start with a simple bedtime prayer and use it to teach children many things about God’s nature and attributes. Prayer is a conversation with our Creator, so that means we can bring all of our daily cares and activities to Him. Whether it’s praising Him for the beauty of the earth, thanking Him for good friends, or asking forgiveness for a wrong thought or action, God is as close as a prayer.

This book is straightforward and easy for children and parents to relate to. I think there are many natural discussions that will come about between a child and the adults in their lives as they read this book. Even adults will benefit from the gentle reminder that every day – all day – in every situation – God is present with us and cares about what is going on in our lives.

The Morrows also explain the many ways that God can and does speak to us throughout our day. His Word, His creation, the people He uses to guide and bless our lives all work to speak His will and way into our hearts. This really is an important teaching tool that children will enjoy again and again. What a wonderful, beautiful book!!
