Every line in this book is filled with words that I hope and pray for my own children but have never been able to put together so articulately. It hits a truly deep and special part of my heart. One that longs for each of my children to know that they are loved, capable, supported and full of so much worth.
From the very first word my tears started to flow and they stayed and they worsened as the pages kept going. Looking over at my children as I choked through each phrase I saw two in tears because their Momma was so moved and one little one who kept asking, "Do you need a kiss?" What a sweet moment in time when they took on the role of comforting ME!
Needless to say, this will be a very special book that will be brought out many times for years to come. I'm quite sure I'll cry every time I read it because time is a cruel, cruel thing and I see it flying by so quickly. Each time we read it together it will hold a new meaning to that moment we will be currently navigating.
Beautiful job, Matthew Paul Turner. Thank you for following the Lord's leading and allowing Him to pen this beautiful story through you. It speaks volumes to many parents and on behalf of all of us, thank you for putting into words what we just couldn't do.
