What child does not love to receive mail? What if that child could receive, open and read his or her own personal mail from God? The Love Letters from God will invite them to do just that! Accompanying each story in this unique childrens Bible is a very special and encouraging letter, each tucked away in its own lift-the-flap envelope, just for them. Written for children ages four to eight, the Love Letters from God includes eighteen of the most popular Bible storiesnine from the Old Testament and nine from the New Testament. Following each story the child will find his or her own letter from God. Children will love the excitement of opening the letters and parents will love how each letter elaborates on the Bible story being told. A very special Bible verse, entitled Gods Wonderful Words To You will accompany each story and letter. Much more than a mere memory verse, each carefully chosen promise will be Gods very own personal words of love, encouragement, and hope. This book will culminate in an invitation for the children to write their own RSVP to God.

The message(s) in this book are those that young children need to learn about God: God forgives sin, He wonderfully created them, He will never leave them, God knows them by name and the list goes on and on. The stories include in this beautifully written and illustrate book are Creation and the fall of man, Noah and the flood, Samuel, David and Goliath, The lost Sheep and many more Bible stories children love to hear over and over again. The message of God's love for us is clearly presented throughout Nellist's book Love Letters from God. There couldn't be a more stronger book of God's love than reading the Bible. The illustrations are beautifully done and complement each story that is told in the book.
JulieNebraskaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great IdeaNovember 17, 2014JulieNebraskaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I really like the idea behind Love Letters from God by Glenys Nellist. It tells a short Bible story in child friendly terms and then has a "letter from God" in a lift-a-flap fashion that gives the personal application of the story. You can make sure you do more than just learn the story this way. All kids love a book with flaps to lift, and it's fun to be able to fill in their names on the letter. The stories are in chronological order, and the final two pages have one letter that is an invitation and then one letter where you can write a love letter back to God. Such great ideas! The key verses on each page are not always in context with the story and the author seems to take some liberty in what she makes as the main point of each story. They aren't ever unbiblical truths, but you just might keep those things in mind when reading. My children are always excited to read another story from this book. Thank you to BookLook Bloggers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book!

Tell us a little about yourself. I grew up in a little village in northern England. My earliest memory of spreading the gospel was standing on street corners along with my seven siblings as my father, a Methodist local preacher, loudly invited passers-by to our village church. Although I no longer stand on street corners to proclaim the gospel, I still try to share it through my writing.
What was your motivation behind this project? When my four sons were young, their favorite book was The Jolly Postman, by Janet & Allan Ahlberg, a delightful book that contained real letters in envelopes, written to nursery rhyme characters. My sons would sit on my lap and eagerly read the letters. This little book became the inspiration for mine.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope that as parents, grandparents, and educators share this book with their little ones, they will draw closer to God as they read his great letters of love, written just for them.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? It is amazing to me how the Holy Spirit took up the pen, and wrote this book with me. As I sat down to pen these stories and letters, I never really knew how they would be worded. But God did. That just makes me smile.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have to say that the single biggest influence in my life has been my father, to whom this book is dedicated. I also have tremendous admiration for Sally Lloyd Jones. When I picked up her Jesus Storybook Bible, it made me want to write like her.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: When I am not writing, there is nothing I love more than playing on the floor with my three adorable grandsons, or messing about on wooden boats, which my husband, David, is adept at building.
