My Thoughts:

When a small boy asks his grandpa the question, “Grandpa, where is God,” Grandpa doesn’t miss the opportunity to plant a seed in his grandson’s heart. “Why don’t you look for Him this week? Then next Sunday you can tell me where He is.”

Thus begins a child’s search for God. Dan and Ali Morrow take the reader through each day of the week and the childlike discovery of God in daily events. Each discovery is accompanied by a verse in the Bible that adults can use to re-emphasize the young boy’s discovery. By the time the young boy makes it back for his next visit with Grandpa, he has lots to tell!

The Grandpa is very wise, and once again he plants a seed in his grandson’s heart by very simply explaining to him the gospel. The reader then has the wonderful experience of childlike faith as the young boy discovers the most personal place God can be found – in his own heart and life.

This is a very special book folks, and every adult should have a copy to share with the children in your life. The Scripture is a straightforward as the story itself and throws wide the door to share Christ in a way that childlike faith can grasp and cling to for eternity!

I highly recommend this book!
