How Can I Help? - a book review

" Now there are varieties of gifts, 
but the same Spirit;
and there are varieties of service,
but the same Lord;
and there are varieties of activities,
but it is the same God
who empowers them all in everyone."

Title:  How Can I Help?  God's Calling For Kids
Author:  Mary J. Moerbe with Gene Edward Veith
Illustrator:  Jennifer Zivoin

God sends people to help in little ways and big ways. He calls all of us to love and to serve others, to help however we can no matter how old or young we are. Christians have multiple vocations: at work, in church, as citizens in society, or as family members.

A child's call to love and serve is the same as an adult's. 

Work= developing their talents
Church= going to Sunday School and learning about God
Citizens= learning how to act and behave in public
Family=Learning to honor their parents

How Can I Help? teaches children that God

1. provides for their needs, sometimes through others he places in their life 
2. works through them to help others
3. has a plan for their life no matter what vocation they choose  
4. sent Jesus who was not just a helper, but their Savior

A "For Parents" foreword is provided by Gene Edward Veith.

This beautiful Christian book will be an inspiration to all who read it.  The message is positive and right on Biblically.  The illustrations are extremely beautiful and add so much richness and depth to the provided text.  This book will be one your child will ask for again and again.  Highly recommended.
