In Don't Be Afraid, there is a big storm and Amalie is afraid of the loud thunder. She seeks comfort from her family and learns an important lesson about God always being by her side and caring for her.
An Amalie and Mr. B book from the Bible verse: "Fear not, for I am with you" (Isaiah 41:10). In Don't Be Afraid, Amalie is scared by her first big storm but learns that God is always right by her side and she doesn't have to be afraid. Amalie's name means "a hard worker," and that's what she is. She works hard to understand God's love and the world around her. With lots of help from her caring family and with her prayer bear, Mr. B, by her side, Amalie is learning daily and growing in truth and understanding. Each story in the series illustrates one Bible verse in a fun everyday situation and makes important Bible concepts easy to understand and relate to.
