"Field of Peace" by Joyce Meyer Book Review

Joyce Meyer is one neat lady and it is so fun to read her new children's books!  I have already reviewed her story "Every Which Way to Pray"  a couple months ago.

I was very excited to review "Field of Peace."  This story takes place at the Everyday Zoo and the baseball championships are underway.  Boyd, the star pitcher is not on his game because he feels terrible about a not so nice choice he made.  Can He fix it? Will he find peace again and make the right choice? Will they win the game?

I love all the animal characters within the story.  My daughter loves giraffes so the star, Boyd, was a giraffe and even though he made a bad choice he was able to admit his wrong and fix his mistake.  Arnold the Armadillo was the character that Boyd was not very nice too.  I could see a second book off of this one teaching about Arnold overcoming FEAR!  :)  I like the lesson applied to the story.  I think it is so important to teach our kids about the Holy Spirit and His leading with peace or no peace.  It is hard for children to understand the Holy Spirit but they sure understand that icky tummy feeling when peace is gone.  I know for me personally that when I have to make a decision I seek peace first while praying!  It sure has helped me in so many decisions!  :)  This mom definitely recommends this book for your personal library or any children's church library!  :)

Overall there is a great biblical truth to learn and enforce with our children- PEACE!  When our hearts and tummies feel icky is because we might not be making the right choice.  God will give us peace to help us through all decisions.  :)

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
