Sometimes it's hard for kids—or even grown-ups—to understand the power of prayer. Through this sweet tale drawn straight from the family history of Sister Linda K. Burton, former Relief Society General President, you can help your children feel the Spirit and know of God's love and concern for them.
The year is 1874, and ten-year-old Joseph lives in a humble home in Copenhagen, Denmark, with his mother and four siblings. His father has been ill in the hospital for months, and though his mother works hard trying to provide for the family, she is unable to pay three months' rent. One night, Joseph overhears his mother pleading with the Lord for help. Joseph knows their situation is desperate and he wants to believe help will come—but how? How would they stay warm? Or would their prayer somehow, miraculously, be answered?
This true story and the charming illustrations that accompany it will transport you back in time, teaching your children that our Heavenly Father is always listening to each one of us and is always eager to help if we will ask in humble prayer.
