  • Untold Stories of Noah, Joseph and David on Feb. 05, 2017

    I found this to be a beautiful retelling of Noah, Joseph and David. The stories' unique point of views make these stories a true delight to read without losing the Biblical truths. It is hard to find retellings of Bible stories for children that stay true to the story while adding important Biblical values like faith, hope and patience. Mandy Jacob's did an excellent job and is truly gifted by the Spirit. Your children will love the beautiful artistry and you will enjoy the beautiful conversations that you will have with your children when sharing these delightful Bible stories.

    David's Pebble is a beautiful retelling of David and Goliath but it is truly unique offering an opportunity to show children the value of being humble before God. The depth offered in this retelling will provide wonderful opportunities to speak to the heart of your children and teach them the riches of God's wisdom to chose humble things. Your children will love these stories and the coloring pages offer opportunities to discuss the rich story more with your children.

    Truly gifted by the Spirit, Mandy Jacob does a beautiful job retelling Noah's ark.

  • Joseph's Coat on Feb. 05, 2017

    I love all of Mandy Jacob's stories for they add a spiritual depth not found in many children's books. From the unique perspective of Joseph's coat, this story is a beautiful allegory of being gifted with the hope of the future and how that hope carries us through great trials that keep us close to God turning to Him in our darkest troubles. This story will delight your children and offer many opportunities to discuss the importance of holding onto our hope in Jesus.
