The Father has loved us so much! He loved us so much that we are called children of God.
—1 JOHN 3:1
I made you, and you are My child. I created everything. Of all My creations—from the sun, oceans, flowers, big fish, and tiny butterflies—My children are My favorite!
I know your every thought, every feeling, every hope and dream. I know everything about you—even the number of hairs on your head! I made you in an amazing and wonderful way.
"God even knows how many hairs are on your head."
If you look to the heavens, I am there. If you look to the bottom of the ocean, I am there. I am everywhere! You can be sure I am always with you.
"You can be sure that I will be with you always."
You cannot see Me with your eyes or hear Me with your ears, but I am here with you. My voice is like a quiet whisper in your heart. Trust in Me, little one. Believe in Me.
We live by what we believe, not by what we can see.
—2 CORINTHIANS 5:7
Every good gift in your life is from Me—your family and friends, the bright sun and tall trees, playful puppies and sleepy kittens. Look around at all the wonderful things I have for you!
Every good action and every perfect gift is from God.
When you pray, remember to thank Me. Thank Me for My kindness and My blessings. Thank Me for everything!
Thank the Lord because he is good. His love continues forever.
—1 CHRONICLES 16:34
I care about everything that happens to you. Do not worry. I will take care of you.
Do not worry about anything. But pray and ask God for everything you need. And when you pray, always give thanks.
Some things are a little scary, but you don't need to be afraid. You can be brave. I am right here with you.
"Don't be afraid, because I am your God."
Stay close to Me. I am here to forgive you when you do wrong. Forgiveness is My free gift to you! And when you forgive others, the light of My love glows through you like a candle shining in the darkness.
Forgive each other because the Lord forgave you.
I want My children to be filled with joy. Laugh with Me! I created laughter.
Lord, you have made me happy by what you have done. I will sing for joy about what your hands have done.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Jesus Calling for Little Ones By Sarah Young and illustrated by Antonia Woodward is a new little board book based on the well know "Jesus Calling" series. Written on the first person, as if God is speaking directly to a young child, each colorful two page spread features a simple reflection and a biblical verse. Brightly colored art is featured on every page- with literally no dead white space. Woodward's inviting drawings bring this book to life. The art is better quality than what you would expect from a small board book. My two youngest loved this board book. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this book published by Tommy Nelson, an imprint of Thomas Nelson publishers for the purpose of writing this review.
This is a very cute devotional for young children. It's written as if Jesus is speaking to your child which makes this book so special! There are 13 two page devotionals. The first part is the text where Jesus speaks to your child and then a related Bible verse. I love that it's a board book and will hold up to the daily use by young children. The illustrations are beautiful and sure to keep young children's attention. My family and I just love this book! Disclosure: I received product(s) for free, in exchange for my honest review. I only recommend products I've used personally, and believe will be good fit for consumers.
