The Flowering Cross by Beth Ryan




I am sooo happy to share this review with you! This book "The Flowering Cross" by Beth Ryan is one of the sweetest books with such a powerful message! The author was inspired by the book Won by Love in which God used a 7 year old little girl to win the heart of Norma McCorvey (Roe vs Wade). Beth shares the story of Katie and her family and how they love their neighbor even when no one else will. Along with the precious tale you have Scripture verses and a wonderful Easter story that will become a wonderful tradition to read in the years to come! She also shares how to make your own Flowering Cross if you so wish to. This book is great for elementary age children but can also be condensed with young ones as well! I highly recommend this and wish to thank Thomas Nelson for allowing me the complimentary issue in return for my humble opinion.

This Scripture comes to mind when I read this and one that is so important for young children to know!
1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.


Love,
Loren

Loren,

Oh how I wish I would have picked this one up. It was only there for a day and then it was gone. I went for the Bible commentary instead. Sounds like a must have and a great gift for someone's Easter!
