About the book

Sammy Experiences God is a classically illustrated children's book inspired by the Experiencing God teachings of Henry Blackaby. It will help kids begin to understand that God is not far off or hiding from them, and that they can experience his love and involvement in their lives as they follow him.

One evening when little Sammy announces after his bedtime prayers that he is going to look for God, his parents soon enough understand that the boy literally means what he said. When events like a night of camping under the stars and a hike up a small mountain don't bring Sammy what he's looking for, mom and dad try to explain that God is everywhere. But discouragement and a lack of understanding follow.

One day Grandpa Henry figures out what everyone else is missing. Sammy wants to have an encounter with God like the ones he has read about in the Bible -- like Abraham under the stars and Moses at the burning bush after climbing a mountain. Like Jacob, like Elijah, like the disciples.

Grandpa tells Sammy of another Sammy from the Bible (Samuel at age 12), reaching the child with a simple explanation of how we can all experience God's love, wisdom, and help right in the middle of everyday life.

My Thoughts

I received this book in a package deal with two other titles linked to the Experiencing God at Home.   If you are familiar with the book Experiencing God, you will immediately recognized the name Blackaby and know a bit of what the book is about.   After many  years of transforming believers throughout the world, the Experiencing God book has been adapted in order to help you transform your household.  Today, I am presenting the book that is specifically geared to children.  The idea is to help kids to grasp the principles of Experiencing God at their own level.

You can read the book with your kids and then have other fun activities to do with it – Bible stories to explore, conversation starters, find the frogs that are hiding through the pages, decode secret messages and discover the Looking for God feature.   This book will allow the kids to experience God not only in their head but in their heart and lives as well.    This book will permit them to understand His ways and His will for our lives.  

The illustrations accompanying the text are simply fabulous and colorful which will definitively grab the attention of your child.  The story itself is simple to read and fun to go through with your kids.   I strongly recommend that parents sit down with their kid for the first reading and take the initiative to daily go through the Bible stories in order to explore together the Word of God.

This book would make a perfect gift for a dedication or a child baptism.    I think it would be a perfect book for the personal library in your home.
