God Made You Special
I love Psalm 139. In the ESV, verses 13-16 say:
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them.
Nothing about the way each of us was formed, or the events of our lives since, is a mistake. (Download Bible verses for your kids about God’s formation of each person in the womb free and in ESV or KJV here.)
Imagine how it would affect our children if they truly understood they are God’s creation — and God does not make mistakes. He has formed each of us specifically and carefully for his own good purposes. It would change the way they feel about themselves, and the way they feel about others.
Different Like Me
Different Like Me (Our Daily Bread Publications, 2020) tells the story of a diverse group of kids working toward a common purpose. Together, they discover their many differences–and their many similarities. The book, written in rhyme for 3-7 year-olds, is a charming celebration of how God made each person special.
Bonnie Liu’s illustrations are lovely and respectful, telling the story. Dixon’s text perfectly reinforces the message that God made you special.
This is a sweet book with a simple message. Every person is “different like me”–and God made each of us just that way on purpose.
I highly recommend you add a copy to your family’s library.
