In the Word Wednesday
We all need an entry point into God’s Word. Children too.
That’s why I’m so thrilled and blessed that The Sweetest Story Bible now comes in a deluxe edition, with all the stories narrated on two audio CDs by Roma Downey.
The forty stories in The Sweetest Story Bible focus on
helping little girls get to know God–who he is and what he does. And
each one relates in some way to the everyday sweet moments in a little
grandma asked me to autograph a copy of the deluxe edition for her.
Nearly a year ago, on my birthday, I got an e-mail from a Zonderkidz
editor letting me know about the deluxe edition and that Roma would
likely be the narrator.
Quite the birthday gift!
But nothing like actually hearing Roma read the stories I wrote! I
waited a day after my sample arrived–there’s something quite scary about
hearing your own words read back to you, especially by someone with
such a wonderful voice. Finally I got brave and sat down to listen.
Chills and tears!
just have no idea, sometimes, what might happen with our small efforts,
do we? May Scottlyn and so many other girls like her grow up to have a
sweet relationship with God through his Son, the Word, Jesus Christ.
