Recording a Story- a review & giveaway!

Who needs to hear your voice today, reminding them that they are loved and they are special?
Whose voice do you or your child need to hear?

Recently I received a new book in the mail.
I love books and I especially love children's books.
But this wasn't your typical, run of the mill children's book.
It's a beautiful recordable storybook from DaySpring.

It sat on my kitchen counter for a few days while I brainstormed whose voice it should hold.
Then, I remembered that we are in the process of getting a couple of Compassion children.  Specifically, we're making Compassion work really hard as I wanted children with limb differences.  
I thought that it would be really special to have Will record the book and we'll send it in our first package to our new Compassion kids (hopefully soon!)

He had a lot of fun "reading" with Mommy's help.
 I was thrilled that the recorder was so easy to operate- 
my four year old can do it... all by himself.

 The illustrations are beautiful - and showcase all kinds of children.
 And the words?
They are words every child needs to hear - that they are loved and they are special and they are never alone - Jesus is with them all day long.
They're perfect for grandparents to record their voices (we have several books which hold grandparent's recordings.)  We have one with Will & Ellie's cousins' voices.  They are great for far away relatives or special friends.  Maybe you could record one and drop it at your local hospital for the pediatric wing or at a women's shelter for displaced families.  Maybe you know of some children that aren't read to daily - could your voice minister to them?   

 Who needs to hear your voice today?  
Who needs to hear that they are loved and special?  

Do you know a child who needs to learn the power of their words and their own voice - who can learn to use their voice to spread love?

I am a follower thru a friend.... Brooke Meabon. My father was recently diagnosed with Lou Gherig's disease, which will eventually rob him of the ability to walk, speak, eat and breath. If I won this book, I would have him read it to my 2 year old daughter so she can save her grandfather's quickly disappearing voice on her bookshelf forever.

I LOVE your blog and read it daily. Your children are beautiful!! Their smiles are contagious. You are such a strong and wonderful mom! I would record this book for my daughter. I am a working mother and this way I could "read" to her while I am work! Keep up the awesome work.
