Based on the classic Streams in the Desert devotional book by Mrs. Chas. Cowman, this kid-friendly devotion uses the Scriptures and themes of the older version first published in 1925, combined with modern-day stories and prayers to encourage children that God is watching over them and that he cares about them. Using the NIV translation, this is a book of comfort for pre-teens, instructing them in their faith and encouraging them to stand strong in difficult times.
L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.
