Christian Faith Publishing
Paperback, 978-1635758177, 36 pages, $12.95
He's old and weathered, his skin is rough and knotty. But, oh, he has memories. Of joy. Of love. Of tragedy. He has endured many years and felt the sorrow of so much loss. But his greatest joy is just ahead! Children and adults will love Heart of the Oak, for generations to come.
“A wonderful lesson for both children and adults that God is in control and His mercies, grace and renewal are better than anything that we could ever imagine. My children and I LOVE this book. We had a wonderful and insightful conversation after we read it. God is at work ALL of the time. Joy can be found even during and after what can be seen as "crisis". I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone that has a child in their life." —Amazon.com reader
