If I Could Ask God Anything by Kathryn Slattery Summary
Book Description If I Could Ask God Anything is a unique kid-friendly book jam-packed with clear, fresh answers to important questions about God, faith, prayer and Christianity in language that kids can understand. Established author and mom Kathryn Slattery tackles "toughies" such as: "If God is invisible, how can I know He is real?" "Does God stop loving me when I sin?" "Why should I go to church?" "When I die, is it true that I become an angel with a halo and wings?"… As well as fun, real-life questions from kids such as: "Does God ever sleep?" "Did Jesus live on Earth before or after the dinosaurs?" "Is it OK to pray for help on a test?" Written for children of all denominations, this biblically-based book includes fun illustrations and helps kids understand and articulate what they believe and why they believe it. It reassures young hearts that God cares for them and loves them very much! Most importantly, it encourages children to embrace a deep and lasting personal relationship with a living, loving God through faith in Jesus Christ. Nurture a child's mind and spirit with this well-rounded, comprehensive, Scripture-based guide. And who knows, maybe you'll answer some of your own stumpers along the way!
