Help the Ones You Love See the Design & Believe in the Designer

As a grandma who believe the Bible, when it tells me God created the world upon which I live and everything on it, I believe. There are reasons I believe . . . first of all, I believe the Bible to be true. Secondly, when I look at the world, and everything on it, I see design, purpose, intention - for it all to have happened without God seems impossible to me. Science does show us God is real and we are able to believe what He says. I believe, and I want the ones I love to believe as well.

But, more and more children are growing up thinking the world upon which they live, and everything on it, just happened on its own - without God. And, when they believe this, it does not take long for them to stop believing God is real and the Bible is true; telling them the Bible teaches us God is real and He created and designed everything, is often not enough reason any longer for them to believe. 

As grandmas (and grandpas/parents) who believe, we do not have to fear science (after all God created science). We do not have to be unable to show solid reasons the ones we love are able to believe God is real and the Bible is true. These solid reasons are all around us on this amazing world where we live. Design, intention, and purpose show us, and prove, God is real! So, how do we share this with the children we love?

Of course since my grandsons and I wrote the Life on the Goldilocks Planet series of books, I believe they are an excellent resource to help us hand down confident faith in an engaging and fun way. (Check out the entire series at this link and get some to use with the children you love!) I am not the only one who believes these books are an excellent tool to help you hand down confident faith - look what people are saying about it . . . 

Psalm 19 reminds us if we study creation, we see God more clearly. Ive never seen a book as remarkable as this one which ties exploration of Gods creation with the language of children and activity, to produce a compelling statement about the majesty of God. When I read it, I feel like Im somehow entering a new world. Im sure it will be an incredible resource.

I LOVE this little book you have created. What a great and powerful tool for shaping young minds to see and acknowledge the truth about Gods creation. Well done. Every parent and grandparent ought to have this tool in their toolkit. This is a marvelous tool I want to let every grandparent know about. Thank you for taking time with your grandsons to create this extraordinary piece. While disagreeing with Lyndas position that science shows how God used evolution to create everything, I still find these books a valuable resource for parents and grandparents.

We are able to help the ones we love learn to see the design in the world around us and through it come to believe in the Designer . . . and have a lot of fun doing so.  Get and use these books, connect with the children you love as you learn together, and you will discover all of you have a confident faith!
