The Legend of the Three Trees

The Legend of the Three Trees

I totally loved this book! It is the story of three
trees and the dreams they had for themselves.
And the bleak days ahead when they
thought their dreams were in no 
way going to come true. 
And then.... they saw God's plan
for their lives and how much
better God's plan was than their
original dream.
One thing I want to instill in my
grand children is that we are not
to follow our dreams.
We are not to follow our hearts.

 The heart is deceitful above all things, 
and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jeremiah 17:9 
Our hearts cannot be trusted!

We are to follow God!
We are to seek God's will for
our lives and we are to follow
God's plan for our lives.

We will only find the peace we desire when 
we align our will with His and we follow Him!

This book teaches children that
God has a better plan for our lives
than we could ever imagine.

It is not a CHRISTmas book.
But - it shares the gospel in such a way
I think children will benefit from 
it during the CHRISTmas season.
It would be great for an afternoon story
time along with a 
CHRISTmas Tree Craft
such as this one:
This easy to make ornament can be 
made with any old stick and scraps of ribbon.
Just have the kids tie the ribbon onto
the stick and then trim it to
resemble a CHRISTmas Tree and 
tie a ribbon or string on the top
to hang it by.
