Today I want to share a religious children's book with you that is kind of like a sequel to one that I shared last year. Deseret Book has published a new book called Girls Who Choose God: Stories of Strong Women from the Book of Mormon (similar to the Girls Who Choose God: Stories of Courageous Women From the Bible that I posted about last year).
This book is very much like the one that was published last year- it is also written by Krishna McArthur and Bethany Brady Spalding with artwork by Kathleen Peterson. If you're a member The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, you will appreciate that there is now both a Bible version and Book of Mormon version.
Like the first book, each woman's story takes up two pages. The first summarizes the story that we know about that woman and the difficult choice she had to make. The second talks about the choice that she made and how that choice shows that she is a strong woman. It shares the consequences of her choice and then it asks the reader a question such as: "When have you chosen to love unconditionally?" or "When have you chosen to use your strengths for good?"
I like how it uses these women as examples and shows how to take their stories and use them as lessons to us, of how we can apply their experiences to our lives. That's such an important part about scripture study and I think it's important to teach our children how to do it!
Disclosure: I was provided a copy of the book for review purposes. All opinions shared are my own.
