Love Does for Kids


What I didn’t realize when I made my big mistake in Kindergarten is that God’s love for us doesn’t change on our worst days. Come to think of it, we can’t earn more of God’s love on our best days. We are simply loved by God, no matter what.

My husband would say Love Does by Bob Goff has been one of the most influential books in his life. I would say the same. Bob’s perspective on loving God and loving people is inspiring. As he would say, it’s simple, but it’s not easy.

Then on our summer vacation road trip this year, we listened as a family to Bob’s newest release, Everybody Always. Our kids loved listening to it as much as we did. Bob is funny, interesting and so whimsical in the way he interacts with other people. I want to be like Bob, mainly because I think Bob acts a lot like Jesus did and I really want to be like Jesus.

When I saw Bob had recently co-authored a new version of Love Does written with his daughter expressly for kids, I knew it was a book that we needed to add to our shelf. Our kids were already fans, I figured it would be a great way to get them to read a book.

Love Does for Kids shares many of the same stories from Bob’s first two books, but they are edited in a way that kids will connect with. The illustrations are fun and bright. The stories are short, funny, whimsical and engaging. The messages are the kind you want your kids to read, believe deep down and live out.

Love Does for Kids is a book your kids can read on their own, but it is also a book that begs to be shared. Read it together at the dinner table for family devotions, or share a chapter with your kids each night before bed. This is a book that you want to leave laying around your house in the hopes that many someones will pick it up and read.

If you are looking for a Christmas gift or a Just Because You are You gift, Love Does for Kids is the perfect choice. So go grab a bouquet of balloons and settle down to share a story or two with your kids from this whimsical book that is sure to inspire everyone in your family.
