Loveable, colorful Beacon has a problem. He’s excited to go camping with his best friends...but worries that he hasn’t packed enough in his beak. With each new worry, Beacon packs more until he’s so weighed down by worry that he can barely walk! But hooray! Beacon’s buddies come to his rescue, encouraging him to lighten his load by allowing God to take away his worries. Packed with vibrant illustrations and relationship-reinforcing Bible truths, Beacon’s story offers relief and hope to an increasing number of kids struggling with anxiety. Your kids (ages 4+) are reminded in kid-friendly ways that there’s no reason to worry because God’s always with them, and you’ll value the message of letting go of worry as kids draw closer to God. Check out the entire Best of Buddies series, including: • Is Anyone Out There? • I’ve Got This! • I Was Born for This! • Uh-Oh! I Did It Again! • I Can Do Anything!(The Buddies featured in the Best of Buddies series are from Group’s Shipwrecked Vacation Bible School and Group’s Maker Fun Factory Vacation Bible School)
