Tell God How You Feel: Helping Kids with Hard Emotions
We learn from an early age how to navigate the difficult emotions of life. Fear. Sadness. Worry. Loneliness. Rejection. For some of us, we learn to avoid painful emotions. Others of us may “feed” our emotions through various temporary distractions. Still others may hide or cover them up. Yet the Bible teaches us to bring all our hurts to God.
Tell God How You Feel is a discipleship tool for parents to use in engaging their children with their emotions. It is designed to help children learn to bring their emotions to God and tell him what hurts. It teaches them the process of Biblical lament.
In Tell God How You Feel, Christina Fox uses warm encouraging story times to help children engage with the vivid, descriptive words of the Psalms of Lament, helping them develop the habit of turning to God during hard and difficult times.
These read aloud stories are ideal for family times with thoughtful questions and discussion starters at the end of each story.
