The Pine Tree Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs ☺
These are adorably illustrated "teachable moment" books.
The Parable of the Lily is a Grace-filled message of hope and forgiveness
"so much beauty from such an ugly box of dirt"
"Thanks be to God
for His gift
that is too wonderful to explain."
2 Corinthians 9:15
The Parable of the Lily begins with a mysterious gift on a gray, wintry day and ends one spring morning with a happy discovery. Disappointment turns to joy for the farmer's young daughter as her father's gift helps her understand the true meaning of Easter.
*Teaches kids the true meaning of Easter
*Best-selling series with over one million sold
*Timeless story about God’s grace
*Oversized board book format makes
this easy for parent and child to enjoy together
The lily stands for purity, virtue, innocence, hope and life;
take one of these virtues and share how you demonstrate it to/with your kids.
Aside from the cross, what’s your favorite symbol of Easter and why?
I received a copy of this book for the purpose of review.
