Overview

Many people discount the possibility that children can encounters angels, but Joan Wester Anderson says "not so fast." If Jesus himself taught that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children, there's no reason in the world not to believe that God can reveal his love to little ones through angels. In An Angel to Watch Over Me, Anderson shares more than 30 stories of children's experiences with celestial beings—from a boy whose angels helps him conquer his fear of thunderstorms to a girl who is miraculously rescued from her burning home.

From angels who combat evil and darkness to angels who bring news of comfort and joy, each of these accounts is grounded in traditional Christian belief, eschewing any New Age interpretation of the events. For all who are open to the possibility that even children can have authentic spiritual lives—and that attaining a certain age is not a prerequisite for God to touch our lives in the form of heavenly helpers—this book is sure to stir the soul and fan the faith.

I enjoyed this book very much. It's a good feeling, that their are others who believe in Angel's. It's nice to live in an age, where one is not persecuted for such beliefs. We have come a long way.
