On our shelves we have Max Lucado board books, a treasury, The Story for Little Ones, The Story for Children, and The Christmas Story for Children so I was delighted when I saw a gift-worthy treasury of prayers. Teaching our children poetry, and teaching them to pray is so valuable and a special part of our lives. This treasury is a beautiful tool to help do so. The Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers presents classic rhyming prayers and Lucado originals in a gorgeous presentation for any family to use. An excellent gift idea! Anyone with a young child will benefit so well from this book and I couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Dying, Waking God meant us to live forever. But sin has broken everything and now we– all of us–die. Jesus came to destroy death. He died on the cross and was buried-but death couldn’t keep him dead. On the third day he burst out of the tomb! And now death can’t keep us dead either. The preacher Charles Spurgeon said that Jesus has turned the tomb into a bed- and dying into just waking up. We will still die. But after we die, we will wake-as if from a refreshing night’s sleep-and Jesus will lead us by the hand into Life that won’t ever end. – p. 105, Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones & Jago
