I recently read ‘When God Made You’ and I was pleasantly surprised.
‘When God Made You‘ is a children’s book written by Matthew Paul Turner. I haven’t read it to my children yet, but I will soon. I am actually hoping that our eight year old daughter will do her own review. We shall see. (I will post a link to her review, if she decides to do one.) The title and the cover drew me in, but the story and the illustrations within kept my attention.
This is definitely one of the first children’s books, that I have read as an adult, that I can honestly say I smiled while reading. It may have been written for children, but it is a story we all need to read.
‘When God Made You’ is a reminder to us all that we were made with purpose and on purpose. It is a call to action. This book shouts LIVE LIFE ABUNDANTLY. I hope my children get as much out of this book as I did.
I happily add this book to my collection and look forward to reading it from time to time.

About When God Made You
God was thinking of you long before your debut.From early on, children are looking to discover their place in the world and longing to understand how their personalities, traits, and talents fit in. The assurance that they are deeply loved and a unique creation in our big universe is certain to help them spread their wings and fly.Through playful, charming rhyme and vivid, fantastical illustrations, When God Made You inspires young readers to learn about their own special gifts and how they fit into God’s divine plan as they grow, explore, and begin to create for themselves.
‘Cause when God made YOU, somehow God knew
That the world needed someone exactly like you!
