The Flowering Cross by Beth Ryan

The illustrations by Renee Graef are a beautiful complement this Easter story.

A young girl and her family share God's love more through actions and less through words. The cranky neighbor learns about God through their loving kindness in this simple yet inspiring story.

This book is an example of the truth of 1 Timothy 4:12, "Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity." Sharing God's love is not limited by age, by knowledge, or by experience. We can all be witnesses to those around us speaking love through good deeds.

I like the idea of a flowering cross and appreciate the instructions given in the book. I enjoy anything that helps to make God's truth more concrete to young children.

To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I must post that Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review.
