Seasons of Faith Series from CBH Ministries: A Review

Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us, “To everything there is a season,
a time for every purpose under heaven.”

My family received this package from CBH ministries on our way out to run errands several weeks ago and by the time we got home this series of books had captured the heart of my boys.  The series consists of four books, each representing a season of our lives.  Each book contains a CD of Uncle Charlie reading the story.

Spring (when someone begins to experience a new life in Christ) is represented by the book Race With Midnight. Becky asks God to help her share her faith in Christ with her cousin Sarah. The words and illustrations take you on horse rides through the hills and valleys of a horse farm in Montanna.

Summer is the season when faith grows under God’s love and care. You Can't Come In features a boy named Zach who does a great job of comparing mud to sin in order to explain salvation to his friend Adam.

Autumn, a time where God teaches us to grow in forgiveness and grace, is represented by the book
Seventy Times Seven.  Will Brad learn to forgive as he has been forgiven? Boys will love this book about baseball and ice cream!

Winter is the season of our lives where God helps us learn how to depend on Him for comfort and love despite severe trials. In Braving The Storm, children will learn along with Thomas how to face changes in our lives. Grandparents will love reading this story to their grandchildren when they come to visit!

Each book ends with a message to the reader about sin, forgiveness and salvation. I enjoyed how each book embraced different cultures in our society which could help to begin conversations with young ones about how God has made each one of us unique. There is also a  page on the web site which supplies you with some questions to discuss with your children as you read.

These softcover books may be purchased separately for $10 each or as a series for $40. Right now CBH Ministries is offerering a special when you buy the book set.  Up until April 15, 2010 you will receive free shipping on the set by using the code FREESHIPAPR15.

I was delighted with these books and their simple gospel message!
