I Have Faith by Davin Whitehurst Illustrated by Tiffany Brown

Are you ready to get your child excited about faith? "I Have Faith" puts your child right in the footsteps of Danny as he begins to learn about faith. Danny and his older brother have been wanting a dog, but both know their parents don't think they are ready for a dog. When Danny's mom begins teaching him what the bible says about faith; he puts his faith into action. After praying and releasing his faith for a dog. Doubt and even his best friend keep telling him that he will never get a dog. Over time Danny never loses his faith in the promises of God and finds that God is faithful and that faith works. Come along on this journey that is a real life event that took place in the author's life as a child.
This book has great illustrations that support a wonderful story about finding faith in God. As you are teaching your child about principles in the bible; this book will help you teach faith. What a wonderful experience it is when we can see our children begin to develop their faith in God, and grow from a tiny mustard seed to a firmly planted tree. The back of the book has a parent/child discussion which will help children gain understanding in faith and some scriptures that Danny's mom used to get him excited about faith.

Available @ Amazon and B&N in Kindle, Nook or Paperback

Here is what I thought.........

I read this cute book in one sitting. I enjoyed the illustrations and the message of the book. I liked that the book explained faith in a way a child can understand. I also liked that it showed how the little boy, Danny stepped out in his own faith. I do feel that maybe the author could have added an instance where we may not get what we want just because we have faith. God doesn't always give us what we want. I understand you don't want to over complicate it for kids but I do feel like

that should have been addressed somehow. As I said before I liked the illustrations. They are very simple and don't distract or take away from the message of the story. I think this could be helpful to teach your children about faith. I received this book for free from the publisher. A positive review was not required. All of the thoughts are my own.

  1. I read this one too! And the issue of not getting everything we want was addressed but more in the discussion questions instead of the actual book.
