As Brennan Manning says, “He loves us, because He loves us, because He loves us. Not as we should be but as we are today.” Lucado hits a home run in giving us a tool to communicate a thousand times over to our children, You Are Loved.
The following is the description from Amazon:
In You Are Special, Max Lucado tells the story of Punchinello, the wooden Wemmick who believes that he isn’t good enough because of what others say about him. When will Punchinello realize how truly special he is?
You Are Special is a beautiful story that reminds us that we are precious to God just the way we are. It is through spending daily time with him that we begin to see ourselves through his eyes. This is an important truth that children and parents need to know: God loves us even though we make mistakes and have flaws!
