If you’re looking for an inspirational book to read to your children or as a family, go to the library and check out The Shoe Box, by Francine Rivers.? It is wonderfully illustrated by Linda Dockey Graves.?? On the back cover it says, “Six -year old Timmy O’Neil comes to live with Mary and David Holmes on a cloudy day in September.? When Timmy arrives, he has very few things with him.? As he slowly makes new friends, he finds a chance to offer his small treasures to a very special someone.? A tender and moving story from beloved author Francine Rivers, retold especially for children ages 6-10.”
If I say much more I’ll spoil the adventure.? Francine Rivers even includes a page entitled:? How This Story Came to Be.? Themes of healing, mercy and joy shine through.? The Lord’s graciousness to adopt His children as His own is manifest in a special way.? Enjoy!
