The Story of God’s Love For You :: Sally Lloyd-Jones {Ep 94}

November 2, 2015 | Book Review, faith, family, God Centered Mom Podcast, grace | 2 comments

Our copy is duct-taped and well-loved. . .

My oldest son beamed telling me how he's read the whole Bible in a couple weeks. . .

It's sold almost 2 million copies. . .

Children (and adults) have been wooed by the story of their Great Rescuer. Of His 'Never-Stopping, Never Giving Up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.'

And now "The Jesus Storybook Bible" is even more accessible.

This week's podcast guest, author Sally Lloyd-Jones, chats with me about her newest project. . .

Same great content, new design, new title. . .for a new audience. "The Story of God's Love for You" is now available. For the person you never would have thought to give a children's Bible. The person who needs to hear:

"It's not about rules, so keeping them God will love us. Or heroes we're supposed to copy so God will love us. It's about a God who loved us before we even knew Him. A God who will move heaven and earth to be with His children." --Sally Lloyd-Jones

In this episode, Sally shares a little of her background and the inspiration behind "The Jesus Storybook Bible". We also spend time talking about how God uses stories to reach our hearts.

Sally knows how to speak grace and the gospel message. Her words will feel like a deep cleansing breath. Her books are daily reminders of grace. The grace we long to show ourselves and our children.

    Heather! Just when I think I’ve heard my favorite, I hear another! What a blessing Sally is!! This one blessed me so much. Learning so much lately about God’s grace and how I drown it out so much with trying to work hard to please him. He’s already completely pleased with me because of CHRIST! Thank you for emphasizing this lately on the podcasts. I listened while doing dishes and couldn’t stop cheering!

      Thank YOU friend for listening faithfully and for cheering for me! Amazed how God is reaching and speaking to hearts through my small offering. And Sally? the best! Grace spoken in an accent is even sweeter to the ears! 😉
