Preston received a very special book this week from Miss Catherine. Catherine is our EIP teacher and I love working with her. It would be an understatement to say that she is a "ray of sunshine". She surprised Preston with the book His Mighty Warrior, A Treasure Map from Your King by Sheri Rose Shepard. She purchased one for her son, David, and thought that Preston would also enjoy it.
For those of you who know Preston well, he is a pretty spiritual child for a 4-year-old! He talks openly about his faith and proclaims proudly that he is in the Lord's Army! If you have a young son or you are looking for a gift, this is a great book. The book is written as a two-way conversation between the King and his warrior-child and you can insert your child's name to do devotionals about what it means to grow up strong, brave and true.
For you are a people holy to the LORD your God. The LORD your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.
The first night that I read from the book, Preston prayed without being prompted:
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR MY WARRIOR BOOK FROM MISS CATHERINE. I will be in your kingdom today!
