Overview

Stormie Omartian, bestselling author of What Happens When I Talk to God? (more than 55,000 copies sold), shares her passion for prayer with children in this thought-provoking and encouraging book. Beautifully illustrated with characters who bravely show their emotions and written in straight-forward, honest language, this story teaches little ones that God cares about all their feelings—sad, happy, lonely, mad, worried, afraid—because God loves them no matter how they feel.

The everyday, easy-to-understand scenarios encourage children to acknowledge their own emotions and turn to God. Readers can help the special child in their lives face inevitable disappointments with the realization that God is always near, He always understands, and He always wants to help.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
The theme is introduced on the first page with the Bible verse: "Give all your WORRIES to HIM, because HE CARES about YOU" (1 Peter 5:7). Children state that they are lonely, afraid, worried, mad, hurt, and sad. Two examples are given for each. At the end of the first of the two examples, God's love and care is asserted along with a suggestion to tell God about your feelings. A question follows about the cause of your emotion. The second example is followed by a short prayer. "Sometimes I feel lonely," is stated in a cartoon balloon by a boy at the top of the page. The opposite page has a picture showing a glum looking boy with a game board while mother, father, and sister are working. The text states: "Sometimes I feel lonely when people are too busy to spend time with me or read a book together or play a game." The second example of being lonely is because his friend has moved away. The last emotion in the book is happiness, which is accompanied by a list of twenty things that make a kid happy. Then there is a page for the reader to write twenty things that make him/her happy. The colored cartoonlike pictures show children of various racial characteristics. This is a great book to help kids name and deal with emotions. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
