Do you ever need reminders to trust in God? Entering the unknown of a of a new job, a big decision, maybe even making a move? Our little ones face the same fears, and to them, on a much bigger scale.

How to Help Children Trust God in Scary Situations
The first thing I noticed when I opened It Will Be Okay was a wonderful letter from Lysa and a list of 10 scriptures to memorize with your kids to help plant God’s words against fear in their heart (and your own)!
The story is remarkably sweet and so easy for young ones to identify with. Mr. T would often exclaim “oh no!” during a change or scary situation for the characters. He asked questions and was very intrigued by the fact that they got scared, just like he does. And he loved the Farmer and how kind and gentle He is. The real-life things that made Little Seed and Little Fox scared, unsure, and apprehensive made it a very intriguing book for Mr. T.
It Will Be Okay follows Little Seed and Little Fox through becoming friends with someone new, being scared of change, frightening storms, growing up (literally), and learning to trust Farmer to be kind and loving, always watching over them. Lysa has done a remarkable job of explaining how it is OK to be afraid, but to always remember that God is there, loving us and watching over us, and that it really will be OK.
The illustrations are so sweet and lovely, it draws children right in to the story. It Will Be Okay is a new favorite in our house! I think you will love it, too!
