Review of I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God
We have received a new book called I Am: 40 Reasons to Trust God by Diane Stortz, illustrated by Diane Le Feyer. I’ve been using it with my elementary-aged kids for our daily Bible time.
The main way to describe the book is that it goes through names of God and relates each name to a particular event or story in the Bible. It explains the names and characteristics of God in a way that children would understand and shows them why they can trust Him.
The 40 lessons go in order of stories in the Bible and include Creation, the Exodus, the fall of Jericho, David’s anointing as king, Jesus washing His disciples’ feet, Saul’s conversion on the Damascus road, and Jesus reigning as King. Some of the Names of God we learn about are Jehovah Jireh, The Lord My Shepherd, Immanuel, Rabbi, Creator, and I Am.
I love the illustrations. This is such a gorgeous book to look at! But more importantly, it is a book that will help my kids understand God better and bring them closer to Him.
