Out of the nine fruits of the spirit found in Galatians: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness and Self-Control, which one do you struggle with most?
For me, it has to be patience, and I know I’m not alone. Children struggle with it too. It’s so hard for them to wait: for their birthday, Christmas, a new toy, or even a visit from Grandma! In particular, it’s difficult to encourage children to wait on God’s timing, especially since we adults find that challenging too!
Patience is a hard virtue to learn but a new release, from author Virginia Lieto, will certainly help.
Written for children 4-8, Adventures of Faith, Hope and Charity: Finding Patience tells the story of three young sisters who relocate to a new town. Faith struggles to make friends at her new school while her parents and sisters do their best to support her and encourage her to be patient.
“Patience is a gift from God,” said Mama. “He gives us patience so that we can wait for good friends. God always knows what is best. He knows we all need friends, Faith. Just wait and see!”
In a lovely and surprising ending, Faith will gain a new friend and, in the process, will learn to trust in God’s timing rather than her own.
This charming book, with lovely illustrations by Carole Hahn Panzner, will help every child through times of transition.
