How do you captivate the heart of a boy?
With words from a loving God about the courageous man of honor he will one day be. He dreams of imaginary castles, knights, and daring adventures–but he is already the child of a real King, and a part of a real kingdom! In a beautifully illustrated, two-way conversation between that King and his warrior-child, His Mighty Warrior offers the truth about what it really means to grow up strong, brave and true.
From best selling author Sheri Rose Shepherd, here is a thoughtful gift for reading to–or with–that special boy in your life.
CHOSEN BY THE KING
I have chosen you to do something great for my kingdom. You are not just a boy—you are a child of the King, and I am your Father in heaven. I want you to know that I am the same God who chose King David when he was just a little boy, and I have chosen you to show the world who I am. I will give you all you will ever need to conquer and accomplish the mission I have for you. Never forget who you are or who I am, and you will become a strong and mighty warrior for me.
Your King and Father in heaven
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. DEUTERONOMY 7:6
Help me to remember that you chose me and I am yours. Please use each day of my life to prepare me to be great in your kingdom. Thank you for picking me out to be a warrior for you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
A PLAN AND A PURPOSE
My Mighty Warrior,
I have a powerful plan for you, my son. I know you are just a young boy, but so was King David when I chose him to become the future king. Little did he know while he was faithfully protecting and caring for sheep that I was preparing him to protect and care for my people one day. Right now I have placed people in your life and given you special jobs to prepare you for your purpose in life. Be faithful in the little things and I will make you great in my kingdom.
Your King, who has a plan for you
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Help me to work hard and be faithful at all the things you give me to do. Give me a heart that wants to do the things you planned out for me long ago. I know I’m still young, but I am mighty because of you! In Jesus’s name I pray, amen.

I was so excited about this book - though my baby boy is only 1 years old I can not wait to read it to him as he gets older and can understand the wisdom found in the book! What I love most is that each page has a letter from God to his warrior. Beautiful paintings, and also a letter to use for your son to respond to the letter from God. Delightfully written, exciting and fun! Boys will LOVE this book!!! I highly recommend it!

Reviewed by: Stephanie Rollins for ReviewYourBook.com 1/2008 Sheri Rose Shepherd wrote a book for little girls, instructing them on how to be God¿s princess. I loved that one! I was really excited to receive His Mighty Warrior. The concept is the same. This is a book to teach boys how to be followers of Christ by leading a life full of righteousness. This book tells the readers how much God loves them. He does want the best for each child. His Mighty Warrior addresses money, parents, respect, anger, teachers, death, and rejection. Each letter from God addresses the reader as a mighty warrior that God both loves and respects. After each letter is a prayer to God. Isaac (age 2) is a bit young to fully grasp the greatness of His Mighty Warrior. However, I will keep this. This book is relevant for elementary school children, college students, and every age in between. This book would make a great gift. For any rite of passage, such as christenings, baptisms, and graduation, this book is an ideal gift. This also would be welcomed as a baby shower gift. I love this book!Was this review helpful?
