Blog Tour: I Have Faith by Davin Whitehurst, Tiffany Brown (Illustrations)

Title: I Have Faith
Author: Davin Whitehurst
Publisher: Childlike Faith Publishing
Pages: 26
Genre:  Children

Are you ready to get your child excited about faith? “I Have Faith” puts your child right in the footsteps of Danny as he begins to learn about faith. Danny and his older brother have been wanting a dog, but both know their parents don’t think they are ready for a dog. When Danny’s mom begins teaching him what the bible says about faith, he puts his faith into action. After praying and releasing his faith for a dog, doubt and even his best friend keep telling him that he will never get a dog. Over time Danny never loses his faith in the promises of God and finds that God is faithful and that faith works. Come along on this journey that is a real life event that took place in the author’s life as a child.

This book has great illustrations that support a wonderful story about finding faith in God. As you are teaching your child about principals in the bible; this book will help you teach faith. What a wonderful experience it is when we can see our children begin to develop their faith in God, and grow from a tiny mustard seed to a firmly planted tree. The back of the book has a parent/child discussion which will help children gain understanding in faith and some scriptures that Danny’s mom used to get him excited about faith.

We received this book to give an honest review.

K has been starting to go to Church and learn a lot more about God. So I thought this book would be a good one to read together and to help him understand faith.
I think this book teaches a good lesson on what faith is exactly and with the bible verses along with little discussion questions in the back it makes for a good family read.

Danny learns how to put faith in something and the result is amazing especially when he gets told it won't happen. You see Danny wants a puppy though his parents do not want him to have one because it is a big responsibility. He keeps praying and putting faith in that he will get a dog when the most amazing thing happens. You see he never lost faith and ended up getting what he prayed and wanted for.

Now as big as I am on learning about faith I felt that the author could have added some other things in such as you may not always get what you want. What I mean by that is the fact of Danny wanting a dog and he put the faith in God that he would get one and did, but what happened if his parents had still said no? Would Danny have still had faith that he would get it? To me I believe that when we pray or ask the Lord for something no matter how big or small we may not get the answer or gift of what we want and I think this book didn't portray that.

Other than that it was a good read that I enjoyed reading with K. This maybe a book we go back to later on to re-read again.

Book Excerpt:

“Hi! My name is Danny.” This is how I learned to trust God and believe His word.
It’s called faith, and you have faith too.

Davin Whitehurst lives in the beautiful high desert of Southern Arizona with his wife and son. He is releasing his first book "I have Faith" in May of 2016 but has so many more that are in the making. The motivation behind the books are deeply rooted from in his own past. He is a living testimony of Proverbs 22:6. Growing up in Southwest Kansas and in a Christian household, he was trained up in the way he should go. By the time he became a teenager, Davin turned away from God and left church. Fast forward into his late twenties and God brought him back with a powerful calling. He and his family have been faithfully serving at Seed of Abraham Christian Center International for over seven years now. Proof that when we teach our children the way they should go. When they get older, they know where to turn and will not depart from God. Davin wants each book written to be a resource that parents have to help train their children in the way they should go. He writes stories in a simple way that will be fun and practical for every child. He wants children to get excited about faith and the things of God.

His latest release is the children’s book, I Have Faith.
