Publishers Description
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." (Mark 10:14 NIV)

Four-year-old Benjamin pressed his nose against the airplane window and searched the sky. "What are you looking for?" his mom asked back. Without glancing up he answered, "For heaven, where God lives."

This unique devotional takes its inspiration from the innocent and earnest words of children. Pairing heartwarming anecdotes with Scripture, Growing Towards God is a wonderful reflection for mothers and grandmothers, reminding readers of the wisdom we hear every day "from the mouths of babes."

Drawn to God by children  May 6, 2009
Reviewed by Antoinetta Castaldo for RebeccasReads (4/09)


Was it not Art Linkletter who said, "Children say the darnest things"? Recall the Emperor and his new clothes; only the children were able to set him straight about those fancy duds. It is children, in their youth, innocence, and genuineness, who are often the sources of inspiration, vexation, and yes, even awe. We marvel at their capacity to believe, imagine, ask, and accept. How else do we get away with the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, and Santa Claus? Children are the slate of our own childhood dreams and wishes. Through them, there find our hope.

In their book, "Growing Toward God," Doreen Blomstrand and Barbara Koshar remind us of our children's reservoir of hope and truth. Readers of all ages will find between its pages short stories that demonstrate how children are the most perfect examples of true believers. The introduction begins with Mark 10:14. "Let the little children come to me.....for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." The authors briefly describe their reasons for writing the book, and from there we are lead to fifty short anecdotes starring children who have helped others on their spiritual growth toward God. At the end of each anecdote, the authors offer a prayer based on the anecdote. Almost instinctively, you will read the prayer, meditate upon it, and see its value in your own life. You eagerly look forward to the next anecdote to bring a smile back to your face. You will read about 2 1/2 year old Taylor, whose grandfather just passed away. There is four-year-old Drew, who remarks about a beautiful lawn of dandelions. You will even meet three-year-old Ellis who wonders why no matter where flies are, inside or outside, people are always trying to kill them. Adults can never see the world in the same way.

It is children whose thought-provoking comments and naïveté bring us hand in hand with our Creator. Psalm 127:3 says, "Children are a gift from the Lord." Doreen Wright Blomstrand and Barbara J. Koshar make us wonder if it is even possible to grow toward God without them.
 
Kid Philosophers  Apr 8, 2009
Blomstrand and Koshar draw wonderfully warm and witty insights from some of the best thinkers around -- kids! What fun. And it's how Jesus said we must approach God, as little children. The world is such a twisted, scary place at times that it's nice to see the sense of it through the bright eyes -- and minds -- of youngsters. Grace indeed!
 
A truly enjoyable book  Nov 9, 2008
Using poignant and humorous quotes from children to teach spiritual truths is both unique and clever. Growing Toward God is a fun and insightful read! Kids are more than just funny at times--they often indeed point to hidden truths we can apply to our grown-up lives. I like the way this book is arranged, too--it's so easy to pick up and read small portions at a time during busy days to stimulate fresh thinking and optimism.
