Girls Who Choose God by McArthur Krishna and Bethany Brady Spalding, Blog Tour

Product Description

From Eve to Esther, from the Samaritan woman at the well to the widow with her two mites, many women in the Bible have made courageous choices. All through the ages, women have chosen to help, to solve problems, to stand up for others, to strengthen families, and to follow God no matter what.
Girls Who Choose God invites young readers (and those who love them) to make important choices of their own, following the examples of great women in the scriptures. With breathtaking illustrations, beautifully told stories, and insightful discussion questions, this delightful book is perfect for sharing, reading aloud, and drawing children into the scriptures.

My Review:

Let me tell you all the reasons why I really like this book!  First, it has multiple stories about strong women from the Bible who were great examples!  They chose to do the right thing whether or not it was difficult and whether or not the circumstances were great!  Each one of these stories gives the scripture reference so you can look it up in the Bible yourself if you want!  The summaries of the Bible stories are just the right length! Not too long so little ones lose interest!  My favorite part of this book is the question that is asks the readers at the end of each story.  It helps the parents and the kids really think about how they act and how they choose to do things in their lives!  This book is great for multiple family home evening lessons or for any time when you want to teach your kids about doing good!  I highly recommend it to any young family wanting to teach their children about making the choice to follow their Savior.

You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.

Happy Reading!!!
