Author: Davin Whitehurst
Publisher: Childlike Faith Publishing
Pages: 26
Genre:  Children

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 principals 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.

Book Review:

If there was ever a time for a child to learn about faith, it's now.  The world is going to pot.  We need more books like Davin Whitehurst's I Have Faith.  We begin the story with Danny who believes in the power of prayer.  He so wanted a dog and his parents told him and his brother that they were too young to have a dog.  Danny felt in his heart that prayer works and despite what everyone was saying around him, he never gave up faith.

This is a beautifully illustrated children's picture book.  A perfect read when you're snuggling with your child at night and it also might be a good time to discuss the power of prayer.

I loved this book and give it 5 rainbows.
