What Could a Two Year Old Possibly Learn from Girls’ Love Letters from God?

Meet Sarabeth. This sweet little girl is only two years old. Here she is, reading to her teddy bears as they sit side-by-side on the sofa.

The book she reads is Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart.

It’s not been released yet, but Sarabeth’s mama is one of ten bloggers who will take part in the upcoming book launch. This is her advance copy. And this little story is my first amazing glimpse into what God will do through its pages…

Picture the scene: Sarabeth and her mom cuddle up to read Eve: The First Girl. These are the first words that little girl hears:

God clapped his hands in delight as Eve opened her eyes for the very first time. She was wonderful! After six days of creating the world- painting the skies, stirring the seas, and filling the earth with life- here was God’s masterpiece, his glorious finishing touch to the world. Here was Eve, made by God’s own hand. And she was good.

As the story closes, Sarabeth lifts the flap where God’s love letter to her is written and hears these words:

Dear Sarabeth, Can you imagine how thrilled I was when I saw Eve? She was the first girl I made, and she made creation complete. Did you know I feel the same way when I see you? Just like I made Eve, I made YOU… and everything I make is good. So remember this… even if you make some bad choices, like Eve did, talk to me about it. I will cover you with love and forgiveness, just like I covered Eve. YOU are good.

I Love You,

Your Creator, GOD

This book is written for girls aged four through ten. But Sarabeth, at two, turns to her mom, smiles, and says in her two-year old voice,

I am good.

What a precious, precious response! And this is exactly what I want girls to know as they read this book. I want them to fall asleep at night thinking,

God made me. I am good.

And then wake up in the morning to remember,

I am good.

What a different world we would live in if we could all remember, every day,

God made me. I am good.

My prayer is that God would continue to whisper truths into the hearts of little ones with every page turned and every flap lifted, and that they will hear and believe those whispers, just like Sarabeth.
