Your Feelings – Book Review
Emotions are God-given gifts that help us to deal with the things that we experience in life. When things go well, we experience wonderful emotions such as happiness, laughter and love. Sometimes, however, we experience things in life that are more difficult for us to understand and deal with. When that happens, we experience emotions such as anger, jealousy and sadness.
Emotions such as these are often difficult for adults to deal with. How do we teach our children to process their feelings in emotionally and spiritually healthy ways? How do we ensure that our children learn how to handle their hurts without causing themselves and others pain?
Your Feelings And What God Says About Them by Julie Chapus holds the answers to these very important questions!
Your Feelings is a spiritually based book that offers parents sound biblical answers to these questions. Written for children ages 9 and up, Julie provides an A-Z guide for identifying challenging emotions and situations that your children may be dealing with – and provides you with biblical examples, counsel and prayers to help you and your child deal with the situation.
This book came about after my then-nine-year-old daughter started sharing with me her struggle with bad thoughts. After listening to her, I knew that God wanted me to help her and show her what He has done for me, so she would understand how God can help her too.
I also knew that the best way I could do this would be to write down many of the things God has been teaching me, in the language that a child could understand. Once I started writing, I realized that these lessons weren’t meant just for me, but for all of God’s children who are struggling with the many sorts of problems that we all face in our lives. So what started as a conversation with my daughter eventually turned into this book.
Your Feelings is a beautifully written book and a spiritual reference and devotional that parents and children will find invaluable!
I highly recommend this book and rate it 5 out of 5 stars.
