Children have a special place in Jesus' heart. He said they are the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, and their angels continually see the face of God. Perhaps that's why children seem to be more receptive to supernatural experiences than adults.
This new collection reveals how God works in the lives of these precious little ones. It contains the touching true stories of children who have heard Jesus speak, encountered angels, and experienced miracles. We could all use more childlike faith, and these stories "from the mouths of babes" will encourage readers to be open to hear from the Lord in a fresh, sweet, and pure way.
This was a rather difficult book to review, because it was written by a variety of people, some professional writers and some not. Many of these stories flowed with great prose, while others touched my heart in their simplicity.
I’ve always believed that children tend to be more open to the heavenly realm, and that is why I chose this book. I read it slowly, one story at a time, and let the hope-boost from that testimony carry me until the next chance to read. This book confirms why Jesus Christ said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” So let’s embrace the faith shown by these children so that we, too, may see God’s glorious works.
