Love Letters from God: Bible Stories for a Girl’s Heart by Glenys Nellist is a collection of Bible stories about 14 different women from the Bible. Girls will learn important lessons based on Biblical principles from these women’s stories. Each story contains a Bible verse and is written for girls between the ages of 4 and 8.
The first Bible story is titled “The First Girl.” Girls learn that God created Eve and that she was good. They read about how Eve was deceived by the serpent in the Garden of Eden. The important lesson for a girl’s heart in this story is that even though she makes mistakes, God’s love and forgiveness is always available to her. Eve still had to leave the garden but God provided clothing for her. The bad choices we make might result in negative consequences, but God still loves us. At the end of the story, girls can open a flap, like opening a letter from God. Under the flap is a message for young lady readers.
In addition to Eve, girls learn from the stories of Miriam (Moses’ sister), Rahab who hid Israelite spies, Deborah, Hannah, Esther, Mary, and more.
At the end of the book, there is a page for girls to write a letter to God.
Love Letters from God offers girls the opportunity to get to know 14 great women of the Bible from whom they learn valuable life lessons. Each story offers the scripture passage where the Bible story is found.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Rachel Clowes.
