"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.  :)
