🦁 Book Blurb:

Pastor and bestselling author Levi Lusko is known for making tough topics accessible while drawing his readers toward a richer spiritual life. In his first children’s devotional for ages 6 to 10, Levi tackles real issues our kids face with a lighthearted and approachable tone. Kids are equipped to approach both fun moments and tough times with their hearts set on God’s faithfulness with the help of fascinating stories and facts, eye-catching art, Bible verses, prayers, and simple action steps.

This 90-day devotional covers highly relevant topics such as:

      • facing fears about school and friendships;
      • having courage to try something new;
      • handling new challenges, past disappointments, and grief;
      • dealing with peer pressure and bullying; and
      • understanding how we each fit into God’s great story

As a parent and pastor, Levi is able to address real-life situations with compassion, grace, and biblical authenticity. Roar Like a Lion is a great way to spark discussion with your kids on meaningful topics and get them in the habit of reading a biblically-based devotional.

Offering practical approaches to faith in everyday life, Roar Like a Lion will inspire your kids to nurture their personal faith in a God strong enough to protect and guide them as they run toward the roar during the challenges in their lives.

  • 🦁 Popular author and pastor Levi Lusko brings key ideas from his bestselling book, Through the Eyes of a Lion, into these motivating devotions for kids, encouraging them to move toward their everyday challenges with powerful, God-inspired bravery.
  • 🦁 Kids are wrestling with tough issues these days—peer pressure, purpose, unexpected change or loss, and wondering where their faith fits in with it all. Roar Like a Lion encourages your kids to “run toward the roar” as they face their fears, knowing that God is with them every step of the way.

 πŸ¦ MY REVIEW: 

An inspirational guide for children and adults alike!
 
I was looking forward to reading this devotional because I like to read and review non-fiction middle-grade books as much as I enjoy reading fiction written for that age group. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I related much more to this book than I ever imagined I would since I am way past the age of ten!
 
Each of the devotionals is titled with a brief, catchy phrase such as, IDK is OK, Courage in the Dark, What Are You Waiting For?, and Not-So-Cool Schooldays. Each devotional includes a Bible verse; an applicable narrative from the author; a sidebar entitled, Did You Know?; and a brief prayer which directly applies to the theme of the devotional.

The tone of the book is very warm and welcoming. Readers are encouraged to seek out God and are given specific actions to take to share their faith with others, live the life God wants them to live, and to treat themselves and others with kindness.

The illustrations are exceptional, and I feel that the artist has done a fantastic job of conveying the author's words in visual form. One fun aspect of the book is that the illustrator hid twenty 'anchors' throughout the book. At the beginning of the book readers are encouraged to search for anchors. The key to where the anchors are hidden is given at the end of the book.

Highly-recommended to families, church groups, church libraries, and others who will enjoy taking an inspirational journey through some of life's challenges through the use of solid Biblical references, current examples, and prayer.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through JustRead Publicity Tours. All of my thoughts and opinions expressed here are solely my own.
